I just wanted to say congratulations on securing Corbin Ball. I met him many years ago and have been following his blogs and facebook ever since. Everyone will walk away from his session learning more than 3 years of university! He is fabulous – what a win for PCO.
He alone means I need to clear my calendar!
Corbin Ball, CSP, CMP is an internationally recognised expert on technology. His articles have appeared in hundreds of national and international publications. He has been quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, USAToday and US News & World Report.
Corbin was recently named as one of “The 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry” by Successful Meetings and MeetingNews magazines, the fifth time he has been so named.
He has spoken to groups in 33 countries, on five continents in a manner that is engaging, understandable and fun. Corbin is the only person to have received both MPI’s International Supplier of the Year and MPI’s International Chapter Leader of the Year award.
Corbin recently told PCOA, “I’m very much looking forward to participating in this year’s PCOA Conference on the Gold Coast. It has been three years since I have been to this part of the world and I always look forward to returning to Australia!
To me, the 2017 conference theme of MEETING Beyond Tomorrow identifies the need for event managers to embrace new technology and to understand how it can enhance the delegate experience, while increasing their own productivity.
My keynote will discuss a number of emerging trends including data analytics, the internet of things, virtual and augmented reality and wearable computing. I will be encouraging audience questions throughout the presentation and look forward to hearing from the Australian and New Zealand audience to get a sense of what’s happening in the industry down under.”
