Innovation & Technology

Successfully participate in our industry by providing innovative services, infrastructure, and technology.

Internal Culture: 

Cloud-based systems (Google/SmartSheet/Asana/VenueOps) leverage real-time technology to streamline staff time, manage useful data, and execute amazing events!

A dedicated in-house staff to evaluate ever-changing technical requirements and make the decisions needed to ensure top-quality and cost effective networks.

We are always examining ways to use technology to streamline inefficient systems (we’re a nerdy culture).


External Partnerships: 

Our Event Technology Services team builds high-capacity internet infrastructure to ensure events have all the speed they need to be successful!

Multiple Internet service contractors to ensure reliability and sustained access during events.

Online communications and payment solutions. We have created web-based client information, documents and ordering solutions as well as online payments through Authorize.net and DocuSign.

Our Green Team (Pledge 17: Partnership) uses cloud-based tools that allow multiple organizations and our event partners, to track things like landfill diversion, community impact, and climate action in real-time. Many of these tools are open-source… if you’re interested in them let us know!

Visit Salt Lake, our Convention Bureau and a beloved Salt Palace tenant, utilizes advanced social media capabilities to help events maximize their social media value (click here to read more).

Salt Lake is becoming known as Silicon Slopes, with a booming scene of technology conventions.


New Targets: 

We’ve built an advanced tool for tracking landfill diversion. We aim to design a similar tool for carbon footprint.

With COVID-19 bringing virtual work to the forefront, we offer live-streaming options, support for BYOD, and capabilities for hybrid meeting services such as second-screen options** and virtual reality applications (if you can offer partnership, let us know).

Furthering Pledge 4: Smart, we will be launching a virtual event series soon. Stay tuned!
