New awards will honour venues' top technology

  • Published by Vedat
A new award has been launched to celebrate digital services offered by meeting venues.

incon-digital-awardThe Digital Infrastructure Award is the brainchild of INCON, a global partnership of leading conference organisers.

In a statement, INCON said that as well as honouring venues which have the right technology, the new award aims to inspire change 'because meetings are better when a first class digital infrastructure is made available along with applications and tools that enhance the delegate productivity and experience'.

"Just having the right equipment is not enough - how to configure and organise it is the secret to success," said Bob Heile, who will be judging the awards along with Rick Alfvin and Daniel Branik.

The awards will be based on the following criteria: quality of infrastructure systems; ability to use the infrastructure to deliver a satisfactory user experience; crisis management; cost; and innovation.

"This award will put the provision of venue digital services in the spotlight and pave the way for the creation of a benchmark upon which convention facilities can be measured for their digital services provision," said INCON's co-chair Roslyn McLeod.

There are two categories for the awards: convention centres, and hotels, and the deadline for nominations is 28 February. To enter, venues can log on to www.incon-pco/award. The winners will be announced at IMEX Frankfurt in May.
