Panel Picker SXSW 2015 – The Connected Festival & The Future of Event Tech

We’ve all been there. Standing in the midst of a festival where our smartphones work great at taking pictures…that we can’t share until we’ve left the festival and returned to the land of Wi-Fi or mobile signals. But things are changing in the world of connectivity at festivals, and that’s what we’ll discuss with the people making that happen at next year’s SXSW 2015. But WE NEED YOUR VOTE!

Findings from The Connected Festival Report will be presented at SXSW 2015, showcasing the music festivals leading the way in consumer-facing Wi-Fi and WLAN pop up networks, contactless payment, RFID, mobile ticketing, iBeacons, and other event technologies.

We’ll take an in-depth look how these technologies are integrated into festival back-of-house operations, their benefits including data collection and use tracking, streamlining operations and offering an enhanced fan experience, the latter of which is becoming an expectation of both the fan and sponsors. Case studies will reveal best practices and an opportunity to learn how connectivity and technology will look at the 2015 festival season and beyond.

This panel is ideal for:

– Festival Organizers
– Promoters
– Agencies
– Corporate Sponsorship Professionals
– Event Solution Providers
– WLAN & System Integration professionals
