Communication is getting more concise; find out how to use this to your advantage at your next event. Plus: Posting on Instagram just became a whole lot easier.

Time efficiency has become increasingly important in both the social and the professional world.

Thanks to the constant connectivity of mobile devices, there is a growing trend using brief interactions to communicate, which marketers have started to call “micro moments.”

Event Manager Blog has found that these “micro-moments” are increasingly significant when it comes to conducting a successful event for your organization and has created a list of sample scenarios, inspired by real tradeshows, that organizations could adopt for an upcoming event.

Providing accessible WiFi for itinerary information and using online forums to connect and network with fellow attendees are just a couple of the suggestions.

The post also recommends that organizations and companies start engaging attendees through micro moments before the event begins.

“Event participants now expect access to smart mobile resources even before they register to attend an event … as you plan for your next event, we recommend reviewing your technology choices carefully to ensure that your team can successfully cater to the attendees’ intent-rich, demanding micro moments,” Nishita Jain, senior director of digital marketing with a2z Inc., writes.
