Our team will be your social media buzz team onsite, assisting in driving and stimulating conversations around session topics, your speakers, exhibitors, and making sure that your social media feed is always filled with interesting comments, photos, and interaction from all participants.

TECHLounge or TECHbar

This approachable, interactive spot is staffed by our tech experts and is a crisp, clean addition to your event space. We can incorporate a theme and set the area up as a lounge with seating vignettes, a tech bar — an Apple Store Genius bar-style staffed counter, or do a combination of both. Participants in your event can use the space for one-to-one meetings, as a quick stop for catching up on email, as a central meet-up zone and more. Locations are flexible and can be pre-function, on the show floor, or in a specific room. Our team will be available at all times during your event to answer any and all attendee tech and app questions, especially during networking and coffee break times. Being meeting professionals as well, we are able to help with the logistics of setting up the lounge area with your A/V and furnishings partners.

Resource Center

All sessions are accompanied by an exclusive resource portal created for  attendees to continue to access cheat sheets on the apps and tech solutions covered in the sessions, blueprints and strategy documents on how to take advantage of new technologies in the industry, and a link to the full presentation to share with their teams.

Event Mobile App Support

You spent time and money preparing a mobile app for your participants to use. The Meeting Pool staff can ensure that you get the adoption to make it worthwhile. Our team will be available to SHOW your attendees how to use it, help with support and questions, and lead the charge in unique ways to leverage the features and functionality you’ve chosen.


Educational, beneficial and applicable to all professionals; no matter what industry or market you are in.

The level of comfort with tablets and apps can be from beginner to intermediate; even advanced professionals will leave with something new! The Meeting Pool staff is experienced in presenting a variety of trends and topics to your audience.

Learning Approach

Our approach depends on the audience, the length of time we have, and the format and design of your meeting. We encourage interactive, hands-on sessions where attendees will be given apps and ways of use they can experiment first hand. We emphasize interaction between the attendees, peer-to-peer, both virtually and in person, where they will have a chance to share which apps they individually use, and expand their ‘take-away’ list of apps even more.
