I spend a lot of time learning about and discussing how people use technology, especially mobile. Recently, I was having a conversation with a colleague in his late 50s who mentioned being "too old" to understand how to use technology. This was the same conversation I had with a friend in their late 30s who claimed they were "too old" for social media. From these conversations, one would think technology is just for the young. However, the numbers tell a different story.
Looking at these statistics and considering that more than a billion smartphones will be shipped in 2014, it's safe to say that we live in a mobile world and that is not changing anytime soon. What you should be thinking about is how does this trend relate to how we are adopting mobile technology for meetings and events?
