Event Platforms: Jack of All Trades or Master of None?

Event Platforms: Jack of All Trades or Master of None?

July 8, 2019

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"? The one that does everything you could hope for in a single place? Or should you choose the tool that specializes extremely well on a single thing?

This is something that concerns every business, but we're placing focus on choosing event tech and event app platforms. After all, what is the best course of action here? 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. So hopefully, today we'll be able to shed some extra light on the subject of event app platforms. Press play, it's Event Tech Podcast time!

Technology And Events: Are We Falling Behind?

Technology And Events: Are We Falling Behind?

July 1, 2019

Over the course of this podcast, we've obviously focused immensely on technology and events. Everything from automation to facial recognition, and machine learning. You name it, we have done an episode on it. And we do this because we truly believe technology can no longer be prone to be ignored by the event industry. Because everywhere we look, and in everything we do in this life, technology plays a significant part. That's a fact, and it's more than time for the industry to fully embrace it.

So on today's episode of Event Tech Podcast, we're going a little deeper on the topic of technology and events. More precisely, our hosts Will Curran and Brandt Krueger will discuss the issue of lagging. Is the event industry falling behind? Why is there so much resistance from professionals to take advantage of technology? Is there a way we can overcome this feeling of falling behind? All of this and more will be explored in depth. So if you're curious to see what their stance is on technology and events, press play and get to listening!
