A cool electronic conference tool

The Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics conference (TCT) is the world’s largest educational meeting specialising in interventional vascular medicine. I only know this because I came across a tweet from cardiologist Dr Oscar Mendiz, who shared this cool picture while he was attending the conference in San Francisco. His comment: “TCT 2013 has changed medical meeting for the future”.

All registrants for the conference received a free tablet device, loaded with the official conference app and other interactive conference tools. This allowed the attendees to:

  • View the program
  • Plan their schedule
  • Find and rate sessions (CME)
  • Download speaker slides
  • View abstracts and case presentations
  • Navigate the conference center
  • Access exhibition materials
  • Communicate with other attendees
  • Share info
  • Take notes
  • Find shuttle buses, hotels, and restaurants

Sounds & looks cool. Being an interventional cardiologist can’t be that bad after all.
