Tablets for Suite Presentations

Q:

  • What content is presented on the tablet (multimedia, suite images, etc.)?  
  • What has been the success of using the device versus the traditional presentation method? 
  • What are the pros? 
  • What are the cons?

A:

Yes, I have been using my iPad for suite appointments. I upload suite pictures on my iPhoto. I have found that it has helped when describing the suites, sightlines and other VIP areas. It is not a good as getting the prospect down to the stadium in person but definitely adds value and the “coolâ€ factor to any presentation.  
 

A:

Regarding the use of iPad, XOOM or other tablet products, we are not currently using any tablet products for our suite sales presentations. Currently, our corporate sales team (sponsorships) is working to utilize an iPad for sales presentations, but they have only put together a first presentation, and in doing so, they have run into a few technology issues. So I am interested to hear the feedback and any successes or issues that other teams have experienced. 
 

A:

We use a tablet to present virtually everything content related: historical timelines, old/new stadium comparisons, parking maps/information, stadium/concourse/club space renderings, suite and seat views, pricing information including financing breakdowns, inventory maps, etc. The tablet presentations have been very well received, especially here in Silicon Valley. It's a wow factor every time. The tablet is versatile and allows you to bring our Preview Center to life for out-of-office meetings. It also allows you to update stadium information/numbers/inventory any time, resulting in less clutter and collateral. The downside is that tablets can't project on a big screen (say in a conference room when presenting to multiple people), however they do make a projector for the iPad, which we are in the process of getting. 
 

A:

I wanted to try and use an iPad for presentations and use it on event days, but I am having issues getting our IT department to okay the use of one as there are apparent concerns with the security on the device regarding our network.
