Here at Endless, we're always looking for cool and innovative ways to improve events. Our team just loves all things technology! And as a state of the art production company, we make a point to stay up to date with the latest trends. So today, we have something new to introduce to you. Vibe is one of our incredible partners, bringing collaboration to the forefront through digitalization and smart software. Vibe's interactive whiteboard offers a myriad of possibilities. Whether you're a planner, a student, or a CEO, this all-in-one collaboration hub is here to make your life easier. Hear it from the experts behind the company themselves: "with Vibe\u2019s powerful and intuitive technology, teams can innovate, ideate, and collaborate in real-time from anywhere in the world, including from your own home". And what's better than a nifty tool like this in an increasingly connected world? Planning An Event Has Never Easier The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a series of challenges to the events industry. Not only did organizations have to shift to virtual with their experiences, but they also had to learn the ropes of remote work. Ideating and collaborating within this paradigm can be challenging, particularly if you're not sure how to move beyond the Zoom room. How It Works Enter the Vibe interactive whiteboard. This incredible piece of technology connects you to clients and coworkers everywhere. It combines a 55'' touchscreen with a fantastic 4K display that activates meetings, training sessions, and presentations. But the hardware isn't even the most impressive aspect of Vibe. As a collaboration tool, the whiteboard allows you to import documents and images that you can edit in real-time from your PC, Mac, or tablet. Sketch, write, edit...let your imagination run free! And let's not forget the dozens of third-party apps that you can integrate with Vibe. Slack, Dropbox, Chrome, Zoom, and Vimeo are only some of the applications you can expect to work in tune with the Vibe interactive whiteboard. Brainstorming, Ideation & More The early stages of event planning are often the ones that require the most collaboration. Everyone involved in the project needs to get together and brainstorm the most important aspects of the event. What's the goal of the experience? Who's our target audience? Which platform should we choose? How can we engage attendees and immerse them in the virtual experience? These are only some of the challenges that need to be tackled head-first. And of course, they involve quite a bit of ideation and cooperation between and within teams. But now that everything happens remotely, making sense of it all and coming up with a concise and actionable strategy is a challenge. Sure, you can use Google Docs and blank sheets of paper, but that just drags along the process. This is where a solution like the Vibe interactive whiteboard comes in handy! With its infinite, collaborative canvas, Vibe helps teams to capture ideas simultaneously in the same space. Everyone involved in planning an event can have access not only to the project but to the meetings as well. There's no better way to revolutionize the planning process! Even your event partners and vendors can have access to the most important aspects of the strategy and work alongside planners in order to execute an event to perfection. Vibe Interactive Whiteboard & Virtual Events We've spoken at length about the challenges pertaining to virtual audiences. Having speakers sit in front of a screen while showcasing their PowerPoint presentation isn't cutting it anymore. Attendees are growing increasingly hungrier for interactive experiences that shake up your run of the mill keynote sessions. Audiences want to be immersed in a digital experience, feel like they are part of something bigger and better. Storytelling has never been more important than it is today. Lucky for you, there are a ton of great strategies you can employ to engage your attendees. And using the Vibe interactive whiteboard is definitely one of them! Their technology allows you to conference in participants from any corner of the planet. But that's not all - they can also mark up images, make notes, and share screens in real-time. Talk about an interactive experience! What's more, since Vibe integrates with the most popular multi-media apps, speakers can make use of the digital world in new and exciting ways. Entertainment should still be a part of virtual events, and this spectacular feature allows you to turn an event's recreational slot into a more dynamic and interactive experience. The Endless Verdict The Endless team has been working remotely since before it was the default setting. Add that to the fact that we're experts in producing virtual events, and it's safe to say we know a thing or two about collaborative technology. Our Chief Einstein himself, Will Curran, believes that the future of companies and events rests on interactive technology. Now that people all across the world are experiencing the advantages of working remotely and attending events virtually, it's a natural progression. The technology is already here, which means we have a very collaborative future ahead! At Endless, we're already big fans of the Vibe interactive whiteboard. Will uses it every day to brainstorm with the team and thinks that "all event profs need a tool like this to express their ideas on the big screen. This has been a challenging time, but it's shaping up to be a very exciting one. Pieces of technology like this will allow us to take both the planning stage and the events themselves to the next level. I'm excited to see what's to come - but we're already miles ahead of where we started". Conclusions And that's a wrap on today's post! Above all, just remember that the world around us is changing dramatically. And perhaps no other industry saw as many seismic shifts as ours. The future is uncertain but, as Will put it, exciting. There's no denying that technology will be at the forefront of change, and it's up to event profs to keep up with the motions. The Vibe interactive whiteboard is only one of the many interesting things that are out there. If your interest has peeked, make sure you check out their website and give it a try. Meetings, planning, and collaboration will never be the same!
