BySeungwon “Shawn” Lee, Dessislava Boshnakova, Joe Goldblatt

Event and meeting venues are getting larger and more technologically advanced. Their layout is not only getting efficient but also consistently being renovated to accommodate various requests from planners and attendees. One of the top trends that has impacted the meetings and events industry is a greater utilization of technology, and new technology-based event floor design software came to the meeting and event market. MeetingMatrix helps event planners evaluate, select, and work with venues. Its room diagramming software offers creation of accurate event diagrams and easy communication with clients and venues, resulting in streamlined collaboration and information-sharing during the events floor design process. Creating easy and accurate event and meeting floor design was what meeting/event and trade show planners sought to help them execute effective meeting and event logistics design and boost exhibition sales by accessing real-time inventory.
