Why You Should Speak at Event Tech Live 2019

Is speaking at an event on your to-do-list? Have you tasked yourself with a new challenge this year (yes, we know it’s July, but there’s still six months to play with)?

Event Tech Live, the show dedicated to the world of event tech, is currently on the lookout for speakers and here at 52eight3, we think this is the prime opportunity for you as an event tech supplier to get your company in front of a key audience of influencers and decision makers, and here’s why:

Work in Events? Tick. Work in tech? Tick.

There are so many events and conferences in the industry calendar, but Event Tech Live is a real opportunity for you and your business to get in front of the right people. It’s geared to an audience – tech savvy and in the events world – who are looking for inspiration for thought leaders willing to talk.

It’s growing

Event Tech Live is growing year-on-year. It’s also supported by one of the biggest online magazines in the events industry. If you’re lucky enough to be selected to speak at the event, your exposure and company reach has the potential to reach thousands of eventprofs and get exposure like no-other over the next six months.

A brand-new Marketing Stage for 2019

Events and exhibitions are undergoing a transformation. Digital is now fully recognised as a pertinent marketing channel as whilst it is often top of the marketer’s agenda there is very little data and information on the positive impact digital can have in driving commercial sales and event attendees. This year at ETL there is a new Marketing stage which calls for insight and data and marketing approvals. 

As a tech supplier, data is something that you should have in bucket loads. Be sure to make sure you seek relevant permissions before divulging client secrets however, case studies on how your clients are using tech to improve their events is something.

Getting Ready to Take the stage

First things first - know your topic and plan your session well. If you are going to speak about event registration for example, keep it snappy and to the point – the visitors are here to listen to how your product is relevant to their business. And the biggest thing is don’t just use the moment as a quick advertising and selling platform– engage with people and keep them interested rather than just throwing your products in their face.

Event Tech Live takes place on the 6-7 November at the Old Truman Brewery and more information can be found at https://www.eventtechlive.com/ The submission deadline is 31 July 2019.
