RIBA Venues — Social Media Is Changing How People Do Business At Conferences

Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Periscope are changing the way companies do business at conferences and venues need to adapt to this and provide the right facilities.

15 July, 2015 – United Kingdom – From #Budget2015 to #Wimbledon, everything has a hashtag now.

The same is true for conferences where a hashtag means people can network not only at the event itself, but long after the meeting has ended.

Social media means that discussion extends well beyond the walls of a meeting room and as a result is changing the way companies do business.

While there may be 400 delegates at a conference, there are 236 million active users on Twitter and 250 million on Facebook waiting to join in the discussion.

For this reason, a large conference venue with social media capabilities is essential in choosing where to host their meetings. 

Delegates need immediate access to the internet so they can be active and continue the discussion online while a speaker works through a presentation.

Five years ago, this would have been enough, but now mobile docking and charging stationsare very much a consideration as well as good audio visual equipment and Wi-Fi.

Stephanie Ellrott form RIBA Venues, a large conference venue in London, said: “Our meetings rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi, mobile docking stations and power supplies for delegates to have immediate, fast access to social media as well as enjoying the usual conference room facilities. RIBA Venues really is the perfect venue for the new age businessman and woman.”
