The Adelaide Convention Centre has become the first convention centre in Australia to provide touch screen technology to allow professional conference organisers to monitor their entire event from a single location.
The Centre has installed state-of-the-art 40 inch touch screen monitors into each of their Professional Conference Organiser Offices, which are directly linked to video monitors in the meeting rooms and foyers throughout the Centre.
The conference organiser can view all the venues on the screen at once or simply touch the pre-programmed screen to view a particular room allowing them to monitor how many people are in attendance and whether the event is running to schedule.
Adelaide Convention Centre Chief Executive Alec Gilbert said the new touch screen technology gives organisers greater control over their conference or event.
“Organisers no longer have to walk between each of the rooms to monitor the progress of a conference, which saves them valuable time.
“This makes them better equipped to pre-empt and respond to any scheduling delays during the conference and understand delegates’ interest in particular speakers or forums, said Gilbert.
“This intelligence can be used to ensure a smoothly run conference but also to provide greater insight to their client for future planning.
“This is all part of our continuing effort to refine and improve the facilities and services offered to our clients”
Other amenities provided in the refurbished offices include spacious desks, boardroom tables, wall phones with access to free calls within Australia, colour printer, iPad and iPod Docking Stations, Nespresso coffee machines, bottled water, iron and ironing board, clothes racks, whiteboards and combination lock safes.
The touch screen technology is available in all four of the Centres’ Professional Conference Organisers Offices, including the new Riverbank Office.
