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.

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING AN EVENT TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM

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.
