Planner & Event Tech Intervention

Date: Tuesday, September 28 at 12:00 p.m. – 12:45 p.m. ET

Speakers:  Nicole Peck and Nick Borelli

We will be debunking myths, breaking barriers and improving communications between planners and event technology.
Tech and live event pros seem to come from two different worlds. One is comfortable pivoting, disrupting and scaling while the other is in touch with humanity, hospitality, and creativity. Both are now joined at the hip moving forward into the future as event clients require more data proofs, ROI and results.

How can planners and technology providers understand each other better in order to work more harmoniously to reach higher goals? It starts here with a frank and transparent conversation with tangible takeaways everyone can implement immediately.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • – Where tech and event pros are coming from in order to understand how to collaborate more effectively. 
  • – How to transition your relationship from a tech provider to a tech partner.
  • – Where event tech is going in the future.
