4 Types of Assistance Your Event Tech Partner Should Provide

Huawei

Essentially, if event tech is evolving, but the assistance given is not, professionals need solutions structured to bridge the gap between the two — before, during, and after an event. For example, AI chatbots are great and have their uses, but what about in emergencies when getting real-time guidance around the clock from qualified people is crucial? Or working with a virtual event platform partner that understands individual levels of tech-savviness and helps fill in the blanks? It’s one thing to have a client experience team that can troubleshoot tech issues, but it’s an entirely different story to have one that will help you with planning and execution of your event from beginning to end, as well as in the green room support on the day of your event.

How Can NFTs Change The Landscape Of The Events Industry

If you are a follower of the latest tech news and take a keen interest in the digital economy, then you must already be aware of the rising popularity of non-fungible tokens or NFTs. They are quickly becoming one of the most popular digital assets and virtual event platforms are starting to take notice of them.

First things first, what is an NFT?

Let’s understand this with an example. Assume that you are a digital illustrator and have you created a beautiful digital painting. This painting, on the surface, is a piece of art but it is also unique because there is only one such painting. It cannot be compared or exchanged with any other painting on grounds of similarity.

Where Does #EventTech Go from Here?

It goes without saying that the last year has been…long. And yet it also seems only yesterday that pots were being banged at 7 p.m. and Italian tenors were singing “Nessun Dorma” to their apartment blocks in lockdown. Time has been particularly elastic in the last year, and (meaning no disrespect to those that have lost or suffered) that’s been particularly the case in the #eventtech space, where more innovation in digital and hybrid events has come in the last year than in quite some time. I often get asked if I think that pace will continue. Let’s look at history to find clues to our future.
