Thanks to our vendor, we now have a really useful tool for managing content for MEDC. You can imagine having to manage over 272 sessions, 100+ speakers covering over 11 technology areas belonging to 10 different sub-owners can be a demanding job. We used to do this using Excel and that was like coding in Assembly language. You have granular control but takes up too much of your time to do simple tasks.
Now with this tool, we can easily distribute the work load to update the session titles ,levels, abstracts, speaker details easily. The tool also allows us to specify what kind of information we want to expose to the public, to attendees and to the conference catalog.
here's a screenshot of the tool.
