Technology at the VCC with Bell

This is a short interview with Kiki L’Italien and Greg Davey of Bell that talks a little about how technology is being used in the centre, and how they help you save paper, money on creating, shipping and setting signage, and allow you to incorporate social media easily into your meetings using technology already in place in the Vancouver Convention Centre.

IMEX America 11 – the Stories

IMEXAmerica11 happened in October over our Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and Vancouver had an excellent social media presence which was enhanced by @kikilitalien being with us in the Vancouver booth and not only filming her Social Media Sweet Spot live from the booth but capturing a plethora of fantastic interviews which can be found at the links below.

Kiki had the opportunity to interview an astounding number of people in the booth including Chris Gowe of the Vancouver Convention Centre, Glenn Thayer – the voice of meetings and events, Paul Salinger of Oracle and the current President of the Green Meetings Industry Council, Sam Smith – virtual and hybrid meeting expert who was there for SmartMeeting Monday, Lenny Talarico and King Dahl of MGM Events (fantastic work from this group), Leonora Valvo, the CEO of etouches who had just presented at the Women’s Leadership Seminar at IMEX, and so many more.

Check out the recap of her time at IMEX here –
