On January 29-30, 2016, weather professionals from around the country will come together at Baron’s free Broadcast Weather Conference in Huntsville, Ala., to discuss the latest meteorological technology, develop new skills, and discover ways to win weather in any event. This time, the conference will have even more interactive workshops, one-on-one training opportunities and feedback sessions that play a key role in the development of future Baron technology. Come join Baron for an informative two-day event that will focus on helping you stand out in your market.
Here are a few highlights of what to expect at the 2016 Broadcast Weather Conference.
- A closer relationship with the weather community
Become an integral part of a community that wants to see you grow. “For those who have attended the conference before, it’s a great way to reconnect with old friends, peers or classmates,” said Lance Cooper, Director of Customer Experience at Baron. “People who are new to the event will see first-hand how important it is to stay connected within the broadcast weather industry, because we are constantly learning from each other.”
- Interactive presentations by your peers
Hear from your peers and discover new ways to enhance your workflow and weather coverage across every platform. The conference will include a host of speakers and topics that showcase new and interesting advances in weather. Presenters will discuss specific case studies and explain how their systems performed within various weather scenarios.
“The presentations are an interactive forum that everyone can participate in and learn from,” said Cooper. “We encourage all attendees to come ready with questions for the speakers.”
- One-on-one training sessions
One-on-one training sessions with Baron technical support offers a chance to answer important questions about the systems, as well as getting a refresher course on using its capabilities to the fullest. Sign up for a training session by emailing Baron’s Tradeshow Specialist, Susan Sulkowski. Be sure to include anything you’d like to cover in the training; it’s all designed to suit your needs.
- Sneak peek of coming innovations
See where the future of weather technology is headed and be the first to get a glance at coming innovations from Baron. Last year, attendees were able to see upcoming features, new data products and digital tools. Exciting new developments in display, radar and digital are happening at Baron, and you’ll be among the first to see them at the Broadcast Weather Conference.
- Feedback sessions
“Feedback sessions are an opportunity to get directly involved in Baron’s development process,” said Cooper. “The past two years of feedback sessions have directly influenced what we create for our customers.” The sessions help point out what system capabilities are exceeding expectations and which ones can be improved upon.
“The purpose is to learn about our customers as individuals by understanding their unique needs and workflow,” said Cooper. “We want our customers to feel empowered, and the best way to accomplish that is by hearing directly from them.”
