Recent advances in social technology are opening up great opportunities to build, manage and even fund events. Crowdsourcing is being used to find and share sleeping rooms, schedule ground transportation, to create event content, to review events and even to fund them. This session will cover the latest developments in this area, with demos, case studies and loads of ideas on how meeting planners and participants and improve the event experience, to reduce costs and to have better input from all involved. 

Learner objectives:

  • Experience a range of crowdsourcing tools emerging for sharing, funding, voting, and much more.
  • Learn best practices and case studies to get the most out of these tools.
  • Receive apps, links, web tools, many of which are free or very low cost, which you can use immediately to harness the power of the crowd.
