Certain tablets fill roles better than others, and there are a lot of tablets available on the market, so finding exactly what you need may prove difficult. Here are a few things you should consider which will help you narrow down your search for tablet rentals.

1. Battery Life

When compared to laptops, tablets normally have much longer battery lives. However, if your event spans six hours or more you should probably start worrying about the battery lives of your devices. However, the battery life of your devices will largely depend on what you are using your tablets for. If you are only using tablets for web browsing and video streaming, you should be able to use your tablets for six hours easily, but if you are running more intensive software, you should start to worry about your tablet’s’ battery lives sooner.

2. Memory Space

Memory space is vital, and depending on whether not you can recharge your tablets, memory space may be your number one priority. If you plan on using custom applications you may want to have more storage space, such as 32 or even 128 gigabytes. Another thing to consider when thinking about memory is whether or not you will want to use Micro SD cards. Android tablets often have slots for Micro SD cards, while Apple’s iPads do not.

3. Operating System

The difference between Apple and Android does not stop at Micro SD card readers. I can never stress enough the importance of operating system selection. Although tablet operating systems can perform many of the same basic functions, there is a large degree of variation in things such as security and application compatibility. Know what you need for the apps you need before getting a tablet rental.

Conclusion

One last tip, if your attendees are going to be working on tablets a lot during your event, you’ll probably want something that is keyboard and maybe even mouse compatible.

Conferences and conventions can be very hectic affairs. Conferences can experience a whole lot of traffic before and between keynote speakers and breakout rooms, and conventions can just be busy non-stop. Due to the large amount of activity going on, keeping things orderly can be a bit of a challenge, and when you’re dealing with rented technology you really want to keep things orderly. One way of regaining some control over your next big event is by renting tablet kiosks.

Due to the sleek, user friendly, touchscreen design of most tablets, they make for great kiosk devices. Kiosks with traditional computers are much less space and cost efficient than iPad kiosks rentals. An iPad kiosk has an enclosure which encases the iPad, and these enclosures can only be opened by a key in order to ensure no threat of theft or damage. Most of the enclosure cases are made of metal, and can come in your choice of over 40 color options.

There are several ways you can go about implementing your tablet kiosks to make your event more organized.  Perhaps one of the most practical applications for a tablet kiosk rentals is to use your kiosks as a registration and check-in system. You will most likely still want a small number of people making sure the people getting into your event are actually supposed to be there, but using tablet kiosks for registration can free up a lot of manpower you will probably need elsewhere.

Another way you can improve your event is by getting your tablet kiosk rentals for event engagement. Event engagement being defined in the sense of event participation, not the marriage type of engagement. If you want your event attendees to be entertained and informed, there’s no better way of doing so than by giving them a bit of interaction which can easily be provided through your kiosks.

Tablet kiosks, much like their names suggest, are also great for marketing purposes at conventions and trade shows. Tablets are capable of quickly and efficiently storing information which can be used for marketing, which has made them a favorite tool in the arsenal of many event professionals. Be warned though, when using kiosk rentals for this purpose you will want applications which run offline, as the Wifi available at event locations can often be erratic in nature, which will lead to Wifi applications failing to run and possibly losing attendee inputs.   

There are many uses for tablet kiosks rentals, which can make them a great tool in any event planner’s arsenal. Here’s a tip though: if you want to increase attendee engagement in conferences in which you have speakers, consider sticking with a traditional event tablet rental instead of renting kiosks, which are bolted down to one specific position and take up much more space.

If you are running a training session, but don’t want your attendees to be bogged down by the weight and presence of laptops, tablets are capable of providing a perfect alternative for laptops.  In order to create a seamless training experience, it is a good idea to rent identical tablets.

The people you are training will be making observations on their surroundings, and if they notice a handful white iPad Minis in a sea of black, Samsung Galaxy Tabs, the scene will look a little strange to say the least.

Having multiple types of tablets in play can do a whole lot more than make your training session look unprofessional though. If you have multiple types of tablets on the field, you run the risk of essential training programs not functioning correctly. If your training programs don’t run, you’ll spend valuable time trying to fix the issue. Instead of becoming a fixer and wasting your time, you could have just ordered an identical tablet rental for training courses.  

While, the lack of aesthetic appeal may be a bother to a few people, program malfunctioning will drive the final nail in your coffin of professionalism. The main way to ensure that your training programs run correctly is to make sure you rent tablets with the same operating system. Renting tablets that run the same operating system version will reduce the time spent getting your training program running properly. Not all programs will work on Apple or Android operating systems, so knowing which you need is crucial.

It should also be mentioned that different tablets have different processing speeds. This can cause delays in the training course if a third of your class is playing catch up due to differences in technology. Renting identical tablets prevents lesser tech from weighing down the speed of the class.

If you want to plan your training session like a sane individual, don’t mix and match makes and models of tablets, even if you are looking for a large quantity tablet rental. Renting identical tablets will reduce the amount of trouble you have to deal with as a trainer, and give you more time to train.
