Planning A Conference: 4 Items You Probably Didn’t Realised You’d Need.

(Akiit.com) Think planning a conference is easy? Sure, you may have been organizing your company’s annual conference for a while now. But our technology driven world is continually changing. And that means there are always new gadgets and products that you could be incorporating into your big event. They can help things run smoothly and also wow the crowds. So which items should you be using that you probably weren’t already? Here are four top ones.


Speakers are useful for a number of reasons. You can play some music through them as people enter the conference room and find their seats. But one of the main advantages of using them is their ability to project speakers’ voices. If you have a microphone and speakers, you won’t have to worry about a speaker who isn’t able to project their voice to the back of a large room. The speakers will do that for them. Think about investing in some Bluetooth speakers so that you don’t have to keep them attached to your computer. You can see reviews of the best online: www.speakerdigital.com

Necessary Accessories

By necessary accessories, I’m talking about cables, adapters, and chargers for laptops and devices. But don’t just take ones that fit onto your laptop and tablet. You should try and take a range that can be used for different brands and models if possible. You can guarantee that one of your team will forget their charger or adapter, so it is always good to take a spare. This will save you from the embarrassment of not being able to do a presentation because you can’t plug your laptop into a projector!


Dictaphones have been around for decades, but they are still an important piece of modern technology. And companies keep bringing out new models every year, so be sure to have the latest one in your bag. But why do you need one at a conference? You might want to report on the conference on your company blog. One great way to do this is to interview speakers and visitors. A dictaphone can help you record the interview, so you don’t forget to mention any insightful quotes in your articles.


Many companies like to record their talks at their conferences. They can then email them to all visitors so that they have a record of the conference. Or they might like to share snippets of each talk in their monthly newsletter or with the media. Whatever your reason for recording your talks, remember to take recording equipment. Most standard cameras are suitable for recording videos. However, this video is serving a professional purpose. So you might like some more professional equipment for the best quality videos possible. You can find out tips on shooting videos online: www.entrepreneur.com/article/233181

That all sounds like a lot of equipment and is certainly a lot to pack, but it will definitely be worth it! Your conference will feel very modern and state-of-the-art. And that is something that will go down well with speakers, visitors, and the media!
