Investor Events Today: How to Maximize Impact with Technology
Investor events have come a long way from the powerpoint slide decks of the past.  For one thing, they are extremely personalized and dynamic ---with companies striving to maximize the various technological tools that can generate a buzz at these formerly staid events. These tools range from the very presentations themselves, which can now feature embedded videos and links that literally bring life to the formerly flat information, to the heavy use of interactive devices, enhanced audio materials and even more dynamic seating and presenter setups.
