Today I was a guest on the Meeting Today podcast posted by Tyler Davidson.
We talked about internet and power failures. I gave some ideas to help you avoid a crisis if your internet should go down during an event. It's really all about being prepared, or understanding the level of risk you're willing to accept as opposed to the costs to prepare for every possible problem that could arise.

Strategic Meeting Tech Podcast Show #13 - Michael Owen previews "Connectivity: Elevating the Bandwidth", his upcoming session at the CMP Conclave
Internet access at venues is a topic that causes significant challenges for planners. In this smart device connected age, attendees carry multiple devices and expect constant access and high speeds wherever they go. Internet access is not longer an option and free is not always the best answer.
We spent some time talking with Michael Owen of Eventgenuity and he gave us a preview of his upcoming session scheduled for the CMP Conclave in Baltimore. We cover not just the nuts and bolts of internet access, but some specific areas for planners to begin to improve their results from HSIA (high speed internet access).
We also spent some time talking about APEX and the many free tools and information available to planners to help them begin to speak a common language with their vendors about bandwidth and much, much more. Here's a direct link to the APEX Bandwidth page: APEX Bandwidth & Connectivity
