How to use audience response systems to boost event attendance and satisfaction

How to Use Audience Response Systems to Boost Event Attendance and Satisfaction Audience response systems, or ARS for short, have always formed a necessary part of the education process. From asking school children to raise their hands to giving a paper pop quiz, sending an email survey to cold calling to gather responses for a poll, gathering feedback is essential to learning and growth. But today’s ARS technology blows all previous methods away when it comes to real-time response, sophistication, universality of application and enjoyment.

Seamless Entry Management with RFID Wristbands

Thanks to mobile ticketing, we left paper tickets behind quite a while ago. No longer do we have to  rummage our pockets and handbags for that elusive piece of paper; instead, we can whip out our smartphone, open the Eventbrite app and present our digital ticket, ready to be scanned at the door. While digital tickets have no doubt helped reduce queues already, wait until we tell you about our latest solution for even more seamless entry management: RFID (radio-frequency identification).

These Responsive Installations Made Us Feel Like Magicians

The New York Future Forward series took off with great success: We had a full day to celebrate three interactive installations with artist tours, panel discussions, and a nighttime party. The three design studios, Doris Sung, VT Pro Design, and Nonotak, traveled to New York to bring their sculptures to life and we finally got to see Drift, Reach, and Hoshi up close and personal, as well as talk to the artists firsthand. Check out our latest videos about their processes below. Join us this Saturday June 18 in Chicago for another free Future Forward event.

Consumers today are more self-directed than ever. Few are bothered by self-checkout lanes in supermarkets or fast food restaurants, and the trial and adoption of these self-serve kiosks is growing rapidly. The growth in popularity and usage is partly due to companies getting better at implementing self-service technologies but is also due to the average consumer being more technologically savvy.

This Japanese hologram pop star isn’t real, but she has a ton of fans

Hatsune Miku, who plays two shows at Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday, is the perfect pop star. In the studio she’s cooperative and never complains about polyps on her vocal cords. On the road she doesn’t screw fans with a bad show on an off night — she has no off nights, ever.
