As an Agency we are very proud of the work we do with charities and non-profits - as such we like to keep abreast of the latest developments in the sector. Enter Charity Technology Conference 2012 (#Charitytech). All in all it was a great event - We exhibited via our 'advice hotspot' (a nice idea to encourage clients to engage and for agencies to offer advice over a pitch) and attended some brilliant seminars.
Generally, a constant feature of most technology events we have attended this year (everything from ad:tech to Figaro digital) has been Mobile. It is undeniably extremely important for any business, charitable of otherwise, to keep abreast of developments in this arena - thankfully, charity tech had not overlooked this. The seminar, 'Engaging with donors in a mobile market' - A British Red Cross case study, actually coupled two of our favorite things: mobile and customer experience, definitely our highlight of the event. Other mentions go out to great talks on social from Bertie Bosredon and seminars on another prominent feature in the tech event circuit - the cloud. In all a great, engaging event. Charity Tech 2013 anyone? To see some photos of the event head over to our Pinterest page.
