F E AT U R E SIX TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS to Help Your Meeting Run Smoother BY DEDE MULLIGAN T he term "technology" can be a real misnomer because it represents everything from software to cloud-based computing and everything in between. As you wade through your technology choices, consider these interactive technology tool rentals into your budget and event flow.
