EventInterface continues to revolutionize the planning experience for meeting planners and their attendees. Our newest tool, the EventInterface iPhone App enhances the attendee’s experience by placing all event data, communication tools and event social media at their fingertips.
“The App was designed to seamlessly fit in with our online management tool.” said Rod Bridges, company CTO and App Lead Developer. “Some registration software companies provide ticket scanning tools. Some companies provide costly one-time use Apps for conferences. At EventInterface, we aimed to provide the planner with an App that streamlines operations and engages the attendee, creating a much richer and more valuable event experience at no extra cost.” said Bridges.
The EventInterface iPhone App allows attendees to quickly access event confirmations and QR-Coded tickets. They can view and share event photographs. Planners can easily post schedules, event documents and videos to view pre-, during and post-event. Attendees can effortlessly gather other attendee contact information by scanning QR-Coded nametags. The App’s chat feature invites attendees to communicate with other attendees at the event using the App, a great tool to ask questions, set meetings, find each other, and even send pictures to other users. The forum feature allows attendees to view and participate in event specific forums. There are event directions and a growing library of planner resources.
The EventInterface iPhone App is free to download from the App Store. This powerful and innovative App is for Meeting and Event Planners who plan and manage events using EventInterface.com. Click here to download the free EventInterface iPhone App.

OK, perhaps calling this the ultimate schwag is a bit deceiving, it is however just a tad bit extravagant (OK, insanely extravagant) but fun knowing about. A trend seems to be emerging of planners and hosts using Butler services at events. And we’re not talking personal events, but full-fledged corporate meetings and conferences. Florida-based White Glove Services does just that via their Butlers on Call Service. At a time of other service providers scaling down, they have expanded operations into the event world.
For personal celebrations, event Butlers allow hosts to actually enjoy their events. Whether planning a cocktail reception or an elegant dinner, event Butlers can attend to the many details of the event so you can freely interact with your guests. Meeting attendees and planners can use event Butlers for personal concierge services, from arranging airport pick-up, making dinner reservations, and much more. Some even use Butler services to support an attendee’s or planner’s onsite needs in person.

Meeting and Concierges Source
Corporations and event planners have implement concierge or Butler services for their staff and event attendees for a while now. Scottsdale-based Meeting and Concierges Source provides such services to corporate clients. They not only support an individual’s concierge needs, but act as a complete resource to plan and manage events, no matter the size.
Before engaging a service it is important to know how you will be charged. You can pay a flat fee or hourly rate. Some may charge a percentage on items ordered. Of course it’s always appropriate to tip. Check references and find out about professional designations and training of the staff prior to engaging a Butler or concierge service.
This summer, Seattle celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair. We thought this would offer us a great opportunity to take a fresh new look at the city, and boy, we are not disappointed. Seattle is a vibrant city with fabulous venues, amazing new exhibitions, an exciting food scene, and attractions galore. With so many unique options to attract attendees and entertain them before, during or after the event, how can you resist an invitation to meet in Seattle? Read the whole story here.
If you are looking for an intimate event or meeting venue offering distinguished service, do we have a place for you! Located in a 1903 landmark Beaux Arts building at the crest of Beacon Hill in Boston, the XV Beacon (call it the “Fifteen”) is a place you must consider.

It has been a few weeks since we posted anything in the Schwag section of our blog. Sadly we haven’t come across any fun or cool new items to be featured. I did however discover a recipe for homemade dog biscuits our K-9 companions actually love. A bit off topic but fun to share, so instead of a great gift for speakers and attendees, here’s a gift you can make for your own four-legged friends. We’ll be back with ideas for people schwag soon. http://www.eventinterface.com/blog-article?id=30

Behind me a guitar was being tuned. The tuner then addressed the crowd and launched into the Rod Stewart version of “Sailing”. He was truly terrible and gave the lie to Tanenbaum’s thesis that music on the underground leads to a decrease in crime. I, for one, harboured dark violent thoughts and stared fixedly at my iphone screen as he sought compensation, sticking a to-go cup in my face. I was back in Paris, looking forward to immersing myself in one of the great cities of the world. This musical loser on the rather damp and dirty RER B from CDG to Gare du Nord was raining heavily on my parade.

MY TOP 5 SOCIAL MEDIA TIPS:
1. Know your audience! Are they Facebook and Twitter users? Are they using social media more on a professional level, using LinkedIn may be a better solution? Use the solution favored by your audience.
2. Develop meaningful content and give followers a reason to come back and read your posts, even repost your messages to their networks.
3. Actively recruit people to “like” or “follow” your page. It doesn’t matter if you post and no one follows your posts. I recall one client who continually wanted to develop messages for their conference’s social media campaign. They spend so much time on the messaging and were flabbergasted by the lack of results. What they neglected to do was promote the existence of the page to their 400+ members. They had a total of four followers, of which two were the page admins.
