The Digital Divide: Will The Rush To The Metaverse Leave People Behind?

April 18, 2022

The Event Tech Podcast is often so excited about all the innovation, new event platforms, and other event tech solutions on the market that we forget to talk about the digital divide in the events industry. Let's face it: most event technology needs a strong internet connection to run smoothly. But what about those who don't have their own Wi-Fi set up?

In today's Event Tech Podcast episode, Will and Brandt answer a poignant question by one of the podcast's listeners. Attendees need Wi-Fi to access virtual events. So, how can we connect with low-income families who might not have access to the internet?

A difficult question, but Brandt and Will come up with several solutions. Then, they also address how certain people might simply be reluctant to embrace event technology, such as Metaverse or VR. What do we do with those audiences? Surely we cannot just leave them behind. Tune in and find out what our event tech masters have to say!
