With each meeting and event experience delivered by dedicated team members, as part of the Hilton EventReady Hybrid Solutions, participating hotels will have access to comprehensive team member training resources to build and strengthen their knowledge in hybrid events.

“Hilton has remained a leader in the meetings and events industry for more than 100 years by listening intently and innovating quickly to changing customer needs,” said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and chief brand officer, Hilton. “Hilton EventReady Hybrid Solutions were born out of our continued commitment to excellence – from accessing the capabilities of our global portfolio to rolling out a suite of extensive event planner resources and introducing team member training to ensure we can deliver the optimum overall event experience.”

The Hilton EventReady Hybrid Solutions will begin rolling out globally this month. Additionally, the expanded Hybrid Events chapter of the Hilton EventReady Playbookwhich will include detailed case studies, pro-tips, a glossary of hybrid event terms and more – will also be available in English this month and accessible to customers working with any hotel within the Hilton global portfolio.

The portfolio of hybrid-ready hotels will spotlight the baseline requirements that customers should expect when hosting a small hybrid event, which include:

  • IT Readiness: Each hotel will have undergone an evaluation to assess the available IT bandwidth and infrastructure of the hotel to meet the requirements of small hybrid events. To be deemed “hybrid-ready”, hotels are required to have a minimum amount of incremental and available bandwidth that is above and beyond the hotel’s average circuit utilization level. This requirement allows for seamless communication and connectivity to optimize the hybrid experience within the hotel while providing easy access for virtual attendees.
  • Multi-Site Offering and Express Agreements: These incentives enable customers to book the in-person portion of their event at multiple hybrid-ready Hilton locations as well as create a more seamless contract experience.
  • Expanded Playbook: While the EventReady Playbook is available to customers globally, those looking for in-depth information on planning and executing small hybrid events can access the expanded Hybrid Events chapter, which will continue to evolve alongside customer needs.

As part of the Hilton EventReady Hybrid Solutions, Encore (formerly PSAV) is offering several event technology packages created for small hybrid events at participating hotels in addition to Presentation Stages, a production-ready event solution equipped with critical broadcast technology and staging equipment that helps elevate event messaging and engagement. Presentation Stages offer a clean and safe pre-built location to produce, record and/or broadcast a high-quality online event far exceeding production values available from the typical home or office. The Hilton properties equipped with event technology will accommodate between two to six onsite presenters and up to 50 in-person attendees.

Presentation Stages are currently available to book at Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach, Hilton Atlanta, Hilton Anatole, Hilton Denver, The Beverly Hilton with several more being made available in Cleveland, Minneapolis, New York, Washington, D.C. and across Europe, Middle East and Africa by the end of the year.

Världspremiär från Unicontrol: 3D-maskinstyrning utvecklad efter grävlastarens behov12.4.2021 06:00:00 CEST | Pressmeddelande

Först utvecklade Unicontrol världens första 3D-maskinstyrningssystem med inriktning på mindre grävmaskiner. Nu har danska Unicontrol kommit med en ny innovation och utvecklat ett intuitivt maskinstyrningssystem för grävlastare. Det har skett i nära samarbete med den svenska maskintillverkaren Huddig. Tillsammans har de utvecklat användarvänlig styrning åt maskinföraren, som både ökar användningsmöjligheterna och lönsamheten för grävlastare. Ju mindre maskinerna på en byggarbetsplats står still, desto bättre är det för det ekonomiska resultatet i ett byggprojekt. En grävlastare är en mer allsidig och flexibel maskin än en vanlig grävmaskin. Trots det blir maskintypen ofta bortvald på större byggarbetsplatser, eftersom de har saknat fullständig 3D-maskinstyrning av maskinens olika funktioner. Grävlastarna har inte kunnat samla in alla data och har heller inte varit med i byggbranschens digitaliseringsvåg. Denna utmaning har Unicontrol nu löst tillsammans med Huddig. Parterna har anlitat
