A brown-eyed woman with a toothy smile made headlines last year when she received her citizenship to Saudi Arabia. Only, the woman isn’t human—she’s a robot named Sophia and is the first of her kind to be dubbed a real citizen.

Timing is everything when it comes to customer service. But with customers reaching out at all hours, and on a variety of platforms, it can be difficult to respond in a timely manner. That is, unless you have a chatbot.
Chatbots are computer programs that simulate human interactions. At their most basic, chatbots can respond to key words with preprogrammed responses. More advanced bots use artificial intelligence to answer customer questions, point them toward pertinent information, or even provide entertainment until a human representative is available.

When people hear the term ‘event concierge,’ they usually think about it as a premium service that is not available to every attendee at every event.
And that is most likely the case with a traditional human concierge service – a person, or a team of people catering to your precise needs during an event or a conference.
A high-touch service like that usually comes with a hefty price tag. However, things get much more affordable when the event concierge service goes digital.
