Whether you’re hosting a corporate training event or a continuing medical education lecture, you may encounter a few attendees who simply don’t want to pay attention. Some participants believe that they won’t learn anything during a conference so they mentally check out and allow their minds to wander elsewhere. A common problem CBS News mentioned is that there are people who use their mobile devices to text and email while the presenter is speaking.
Some presenters have tried to use these gadgets for engagement by asking attendees to view content and submit online feedback. However, when busy professionals have access to their own business and personal emails and devices, they are likely to be sidetracked and can be drawn away from the meeting.
That’s why presenters should use iPad rentals for their conferences instead of allowing attendees to use their personal devices. Hosts can ensure that only necessary software and apps are available by renting tablets from a reliable vendor like Tallen Technology Rentals. Having a limited amount of content will prevent participants from playing games and checking personal accounts, which will increase engagement for the entire event. As a result, the meeting will be more productive and beneficial for all involved.
