‘Disruption’ has been such a buzzword over the past few years. We all know the disruptive greats in the products world, like Apple and DJI with their iPhones and drones - but what or who is going to truly disrupt one of the last physical presence industries: events?
While we were delighted to see #eventtech splashed all over the national newspapers as a reaction to this weekend’s Conservative Conference - we wish it had been for more positive reasons!
We’re not politicians looking to laugh at a rival party, nor media moguls looking to jump on some clickbait so let’s rise above the noise and look at what we can learn from the Conservative Party’s tech hiccough.
Five lessons learnt from day one of the AEO Conference
Today saw the first day of the 2018 AEO Conference held at The Grand Hotel in Brighton.
The conference is hailed as the definitive business networking forum for senior exhibition organisers. This year’s theme "Technology - Artificial or Reality?" saw industry peers and technology experts debating the role technology will play in delivering future event experiences.
Here’s our summary of just some of the things learnt at today’s conference
Over a relatively short period of time, technology for events has become a flourishing industry and provides opportunities to help and support our visitors and exhibitors way beyond what we could have imagined even ten years ago. In many organisations, digital transformation discussions are now being held at c-level and flagged as high priority on meeting agendas in the boardroom.
