      - Topic of Share & Tell Interactive Events
      - Specific Events/Instances - I attended a conference that had these soft bracelets that we all wore and they had QR codes on them and we could scan them at vendor booths or with other attendees and it automatically shared our contact information. 
      - Type of Event/Planner Supported - Hilton Conference
      - Tools/Technologies Leveraged - QR coded bracelets for networking
      - What Worked for You (Do's – try to include 2+) - This was amazing because then I didn't have to keep track of hundreds of business cards. 
      - What to Avoid (Don'ts – try to include 2+) - I phones and Androids scanned the QR code differently so that took time to master.

    Hey Teresa,

    These are such great insights. The use of soft bracelets with QR codes for networking sounds like a brilliant idea.
    It's great to hear that the QR-coded bracelets simplified the exchange of contact information, eliminating the need to carry and manage numerous business cards. This streamlined approach undoubtedly enhanced your networking experience.

    I appreciate you highlighting the importance of considering device compatibility when implementing QR code scanning.
