Executive Travel Directors (ETD) visited the tradeshow floor at BizBash Idea Fest last month to view the exhibits of hundreds of meetings and events suppliers. Just as hoped, the tradeshow floor was booming with even more creativity than years prior. ETD was exposed to dozens of innovative ways to integrate mobile technology into the planning and execution of meetings, incentives and events. Here are some suppliers who did it best:

1.    BidPal
BidPal “revolutionizes charitable fundraising” by providing planners with customizable technology solutions through which attendees can donate to causes before and after an event. BidPal’s tech suite provides online platforms for ticketing, fundraising, and mobile bidding.

2.    Socialtables
Socialtables provides meeting and event planners with cloud-based software to manage check-in, room set-up and seating arrangements at the tips of their fingers. The web tool is compatible with computers and mobile devices allowing planners to view to-scale diagrams of their venues, make last minute seating arrangements by dragging and dropping, and keep their teams up to date with real-time updates.

3.    Best Corporate Events
Best Corporate Events is a high-tech teambuilding company. This supplier designs tech-oriented team exercises for clients that include the use of iPads and their exclusive mobile application. Some of their most popular teambuilding programs are SmartHunts ®, which send participants on sophisticated scavenger hunts during which they are prompted with mobile clues to take photos and videos with their team’s iPad.

Executive Travel Directors (ETD) is a Chicago-based company providing onsite logistical assistance to business meetings, incentive trips, and medical educational sessions. Since 1988, ETD has operated on respect for meeting planners and the success of their programs. ETD hosts a registry of over 2,000 Travel Directors and provides staff to more than 5,000 programs annually.
