Ready to have yourself a techy little Christmas? At Noodle Live we’re all about the Christmas festivities. Who doesn’t love a mince pie, a glass of mulled wine and a rock around the Christmas tree? But we also love all things event tech (like RFID badge systems). What’s a geek to do at this time of year?
We’ve had a genius idea. Why not combine our two favourite things: festive cheer and a bit of tech geekery? Hold your hats #EventProfs, we present to you, the Noodle Live event tech Christmas carol…
The Event Tech Christmas Carol
Twas the night before event day, when all through the venue,
Not a decoration was stirring, not even a menu.
The NFC smart posters were hung around the venue with care,
In hopes that the delegates soon would be there.
The organisers were working late and dreaming of their beds,
While visions of long queues for entrance and sessions sign-up danced in their heads.
And the Event Assistants and that nice Intern chap,
Were dreading the long hours of questions and information chat.
When out on the artificial grass entrance path there arose such a clatter,
Everyone sprang from their desks to see what was the matter.
Away to the window they flew like an #EventProf on event day,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the bay (window).
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the look of professional event lighting to objects below.
When, what to their wandering eyes should appear,
But an event tech representative and her RFID badging gear.
With a little badge printer, so lively and quick,
They knew in a moment it would do the trick.
More rapid than eagles the badges did print,
And she read them as they came out, her eyes all a-glint.
“Now, Mandy! Now, Sandy! Now David and Stew!
Register in seconds and check your coat in too!
These badges will give you the power to download documents at will,
And provide you with access to them later – still!”
“With unique opportunities for sponsors on top,
The benefits and wonders just don’t seem to stop.
And best of all #EventProfs, yes the best part for last,
The opportunities to capture great data are vast.”
And then, in a twinkling, this representative did run,
Straight towards the venue entrance whilst having great fun.
And as they drew in a breath and were turning around,
Straight into the venue did the representative bound.
“No waiting times at all,” the happy woman did say,
“And it also comes with live polling and speaker Q&A.”
A bundle of badge printers and scanners she had on her back,
And she looked like Santa, just opening his sack.
Her eyes-how they twinkled! Her dimples how merry!
Her cheeks were like roses, her nose like a cherry!
She had very long limbs that got in the way,
That seemed awkward and gangly, like a Noodle some might say!
She spoke not a word, but went straight to her work,
And distributed tablets around with a smirk,
And laying her finger aside of her nose,
And giving a nod, she suddenly froze.
“Just this one time, all of this event tech will be free,
Next time you should upgrade to full NFC.
‘Bring your own device’ will be cheaper by far,
For now just drop those tablets back off at my car.”
With that she turned and she left through the fire exit door,
And away she did walk leaving the #EventProfs to adore (her).
But they heard her exclaim, ‘ere she drove out of sight.
“Events can run smoother, if you get your event tech right.”
