All rise for this week's Event Tech Podcast on event app platforms! This is far from being the first time we've covered event apps on the blog. However, today we're going deeper into this complex subject. When we're talking about event app platforms, there are always two sides of the debate. Should you go for the "master platform"?

That's exactly what our hosts Brandt Krueger and Will Curran will be discussing today. We're all about helping you make the best possible choices when it comes to your events.
