It's Here! Welcome to EMS Live! 2017

Wendy Newlon | October 15, 2017

The halls are buzzing with participants, professionals are sharing valuable insights, and the excitement is palpable. This year celebrates the 16th annual EMS Live! event, where those who are passionate about shaping the modern workplace and campus have gathered this week in the heart of Atlanta.

And we’re off to a lively start! More than 700 of us are at the Marriott Marquis, interacting with leaders from preeminent universities and businesses including Citigroup, JLL Smart Building, and the University of Notre Dame. We’re getting hands-on training, networking with peers, and gaining tips from scheduling experts—while having fun at the same time.

“Meet. Play. Learn. Collaborate.” is the theme of EMS Live! 2017, and it’s all underway. Here’s what’s happening:

Meet the Experts

We’re pleased to be presenting a wide variety of keynotes and customer-led sessions for both corporate and higher education audiences on future-focused and practical usage topics. With scores of clinics and networking sessions, attendees are gaining new, in-depth knowledge and practical tools ready to apply to their organizations.

Play with Useful Tools

Our customers will especially be excited this year about the new Play area, which serves up opportunities to get hands-on experience with new technology from EMS and our partners. This hub for advice, education, and business connections has something for everyone, from the novice user to the seasoned scheduling pro.

Learn from EMS Experts

More workshops than ever this year mean you gain greater understanding and insight into how EMS products and access points can help your organization best manage meeting, room, and event scheduling challenges. And participants can schedule 30 minutes of hands-on training with EMS consultants and learning about future product plans and the EMS vision for the digital workplace and modern campus.

Collaborate with your Peers

There’s networking, and then there’s power networking. EMS Live! power networking meetings are some of the most popular sessions of the entire conference. Because these sessions are based on similar geography, industry, or role, there’s plenty of opportunity for you to build relationships with and gain useful strategies from like-minded peers. To cap off our first day, participants will gather in the evening for a welcome reception after the networking sessions.

To make sure you don’t miss a minute of the excitement, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Google with the hashtag #EMSLive17 and find directions on how to download the event app.
