Though the event industry has undergone rapid transformation over the past year, events remain events! They have always presented a powerful opportunity to build an active, thriving community of brand advocates. With an end-to-end event management approach, that power is amplified across time and space.

On Wednesday, August 18, join industry leaders for a conversation about the rise of event technology that supports an end-to-end event management approach.  Our panel of experts will cover all sides of event management from concept to conclusion. Topics of discussion will include:

  • Delivering a single event experience
  • Creating one source of content
  • Ensuring data continuity throughout the event journey
Event planners and marketers are creative, highly adaptable, meticulously organized, and incredible problem solvers. The rise of end-to-end event management technology will allow planners and marketers to seamlessly deliver immersive event experiences for their stakeholders— attendees, partners, sponsors, and content providers.
