#technology corner TECHNOLOGY TRENDING: SXSW FEATURES INNOVATIVE MEETING TECH BY WALTER J. RECHER S XSW Interactive is one of the world's largest and most innovative conferences, and this year was no exception. There were a number of truly innovative technology applications that could revolutionize the meetings and events industry. As Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and other sources predicted, some of the key technology developers have created new apps that are sure to become a key factor in planning and developing more effective meetings. Some of the major breakthroughs announced at SXSW that are geared towards today's meeting and event planner include: Charlie filters through the web to present you with common traits between you and your connection, breaking news on their company, social updates and more. Plotter www.plotterapp.com The "first social network for maps" brings much needed features to mobile maps like the ability to view multiple plotted locations (including conference venues or hotel locations) at once. Plotter also lets you crowd source and discover maps from fellow meetings attendees, friends and experts. Finally, a map app that does more than search and directions! Present.me www.present.me Think YouTube meets Slideshare. Whether it's a conference presentation, updating attendees on an upcoming meeting agenda or sharing details of an event location or venue, Present.me allows you to record and share your ideas, knowledge and messages online - simply and cost effectively.
