Welcome to this edition of Front & Center that features interviews with the best and brightest hospitality professionals and industry thought-leaders.

My guest today on Front & Center is Corbin Ball, CSP, CMP, and MS and the principle behind Corbin Ball Associates.

Many of us who are involved in the meetings and events industry are very familiar with the name Corbin Ball and know him as an international speaker and consultant.

But, did you know that he is a technology columnist for several publications, an MPI International Supplier of the Year, a five-time recipient of MeetingNews and Successful Meetings Magazine’s “The 25 Most Influential People in the Meetings Industry”?

Corbin serves or has served on numerous hotel, corporate, convention bureau and association boards. He has been the Chair of the EIBTM Technology Watch for the past 9 years and is the only person to have received both the MPI International Supplier of the Year and the MPI International Chapter Leader of the Year awards.

He holds a Master of Science degree in Experimental Psychology from Western Washington University as well.

On this edition of Front & Center, Corbin shares his insight into new technology advances in mobile technology, tablets, apps, and social media and how they effect the meetings and events industry and those who attend these events.
