BEST USE OF EVENT TECHNOLOGY AWARD
For the first time in 2015, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) decided to include a full-day session on live pulmonary endoscopy. As ERS’ independent AV consultants, we are very proud to have contributed to this award-winning event.
Live procedures were performed in two hospitals in the Netherlands and transmitted live into a 1750-seat auditorium in Amsterdam’s RAI conference centre. To increase the interaction between participants and the specialists, different communication channels were put into place. Participants could interact with the faculty and specialists by sending open ended questions through mobile devices, these questions were centralised through the session chairs and then answered real-time during the procedure by the doctor performing the technique.
The award, which was announced at a ceremony in Berlin, commends the best use of technology at an event to improve and add value to the experience of delegates.
