Leading DMC for the Meetings and Event Industry Hosts Key Meetings Industry Figures at Technology Themed Networking Event Pacific World, the leading DMC for the Meetings and Events Industry hosted a technology themed network event at EIBTM, which was attended by over 120 meetings industry professionals from across the globe including key clients, suppliers and publication representatives.
The event, which was hosted on November 19th, at Passatge Utset Nº 14, in Barcelona (an old garage transformed into a meetings venue) was designed to showcase some of the latest innovations in meetings industry technology whilst providing a dynamic platform for networking between meetings industry peers.
Patricia Silvio, Global Marketing Manager, Pacific World commented, “ We were delighted by the turn out at our latest event in Barcelona. The old garage was the perfect location for delivering a warehouse themed party where everyone could come together in a relaxed and informal atmosphere and enjoy the power of leading technology first hand.
“During the night, the guests were able to discover and play with the Reactable, an electronic musical instrument with a tabletop multi-touch interface. It’s a really cool tool that until now has only been used for music festivals. Reactable is now jumping into the corporate world due to its potential to reinforce the branding and corporate culture during various events,” Silvio continues. During the evening, client’s played with the table creating their own music.
Attendees were also invited to attend an interactive Goggle Glass demonstration where guests were able to try the glasses and discover the different applications. There also were a virtual reality station where guests were able to test the technology. Innovation were present in all areas including the catering. During the night interesting canapés were designed and served specifically to challenge perceptions during the event.
“Some of the dishes which were served throughout the event were prepared in front of the guests using molecular gastronomic techniques. We served up creative and tasteful dishes including carpaccio with spherification of olives and a selection of desserts including sweet burgers and false eggs,” Silvio concludes.
