Cavendish Conference Venues embrace Google wave

January 19, 2010

We are trialling a version of Google wave with the aim of integrating this technology into speaker presentations hopefully to make them truly interactive. Maybe we will be able to have a live dynamic presentation running with a social media input allowing virtual attendees to interact with the presentation. This is in a sense is a democratisation of webcasting technology, in that the latter is so technology heavy the number of users is inevitably restricted. For example at our America Square Conference Centre in the city of London we hosted a webcast last week for a large listed company to announce their annual results both to 140 delegates in the room but simultaneously to 80 analysts around the world. To put this technology in place took an engineer two days.  In an attempt to lighten this load for some time now at our Cavendish Conference Centre we have been trialling something along these lines using twitter feeds. We think the Google wave should allow us to a quantum step in what used to be called taking the classroom out of the school and to the children.
