I thought I'd pass along this article from Special Events Magazine in regard to how iPads are being used in the special events industry. http://bit.ly/luhwJX
One challenge I'm dealing with now is regularly updating/syncing the iPads for our Rental Consultants at our Long Island location. iTunes only allows one-way file syncing from one "authorized computer". Since I had originally used my office desktop to do so, I can't sync those tablets on Long Island as easily as I can for those at our headquarters in Connecticut. I believe there is a solution, but we have also recently moved our data to "the cloud", which adds another variable. You'd think that would make it easier, but for a variety of reasons...it doesn't. I believe I have a solution though, with the operative words right now being, "I believe".
Feel free to comment here on the blog or even better, on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/stamfordtent) to share your experiences. There are so many apps available now and so many more ways we can use this tablet to differentiate ourselves and become more effective, that very often the best way to learn is to start a dialog with friends and colleagues!
