August 25, 2017
Took place at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London on Wednesday 30 November and Thursday 1 December 2016
Special thank you to our sponsors
Today we see many event organisers maintaining strong revenue streams based on their traditional business model. But how long can this last?
Data and technology are disrupting the status quo. They are changing the event experience, the expectations of event participants and ultimately the bottom line. As we have seen in other industries, winners embrace new opportunities or face being left behind.
To tackle these issues, the symposium took place over two days:
Wednesday 30 November 2016
- Began with an exclusive roundtable (invitation only) – open to senior digital leaders from the events industry
- Followed by an evening networking ‘canapés and cocktail’ reception – for all attendees (from both days), comprising senior executives from organisers, venues, service providers and tech vendors
- Full day of panel discussions, speaker presentations and workshops – was open to all attendees
- Among the key note speakers were Marco Giberti, a former organiser and now investor in numerous event tech businesses. His industry expertise made him uniquely qualified on this cutting edge subject
“We are now at the point when every organiser has to define its data and digital strategy – this event provides the setting in which you can step back, evaluate and plan for the future.
