We can’t promise the kind of swag that you might get if you were attending a Royal wedding , but there will be some pretty sweet prizes up for grabs at the Sales 2.0 Conference on Monday and Tuesday, including the coveted Apple iPad. When the first iPad came out, conference host Gerhard Gschwandtner went on record to predict that the device will change the way salespeople “work, sell, and play.” How? According to Gschwandtner, it’s all about the touch-screen technology: “[The touch screen] is a huge leap forward in customer engagement. Salespeople can quickly access all the information the customer wants to see. Imagine going on a sales call with an iPad, showing video testimonials or product demos. Soon you’ll be able to conduct a Webinar on your iPad, sharing your screen with customers on another continent.”
