Fork in the road blog
This blog is a place for ideas, perspectives and evidence that social media and other innovative technologies can and will flourish alongside face-to-face meetings. And, as we explore the world of Web 2.0 and emerging technology, we’ll always be looking for the next big thing to enhance the connection and collaboration at the core of every meeting, conference, and exhibition so that as the next fork in the road approaches, we’ll see it coming.
