Digital technology has opened up the traditional craft of tourist guiding allowing information from a number of sources and different languages to be relayed to groups of listeners. So it was only a matter of time before the conference and events industry adapted tour guide systems to enhance presenter efficiency and delegate experience.
At a recent sales conference at Celtic Manor, Lightsource Productions successfully substituted the well used 'break out' room scenario with 9 museum-style presentations to groups of 12 sales force delegates. In a large and very busy exhibition hall each group toured from one mini-stand to the next, each time retuning their headsets to the appropriate presenter.
"Everything went well and Rob and Steve from Lightsource supported us at every stage of the event, the response to the tour sessions was very good" adds David Turner Marketing & Communications Specialist at the event.
