How AI is Transforming the Exhibition Floor

February 7, 2024

Webinar Description:

In today’s data-driven world, understanding the behaviors and preferences of your audience is critical to successful event planning and strategy. Join the IAEE webinar to discover how harnessing the power of behavioral data can transform your events into unforgettable experiences and drive strategic success.

In this session, you will hear a case study from FDIC’s Firehouse of the Future about how this event gathered, analyzed, and interpreted behavioral data to inform event trends and strategic decisions. You might be surprised to hear several learnings that were not what the typical event goer eye could see.

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Discover ethical AI and how it relates to facial analysis.
  • Define how Clarion measures event success.
  • Evaluate opportunities to collect more data at booths and activations.
  • Gain insights with a deeper understanding of attendee behavior.
