Tech or T-Rex: Is event planning stuck in the past?

28 Feb 2024

In this session we are going to look at what is missing in event tech, why and what we, as planners, can do about it.

Nearly all the current event tech is designed to improve the attendee experience. It’s understandable that this is the focus and as planners we have driven that development. But what about us, what tech is there to make planning easier, more efficient? Have we been driving change? It’s a huge tech gap with big implications.

Time to stop being dinosaurs and demand more

They always say event planning is stressful: It’s up there with police and firefighters. The right tools could make the job easier, less stressful. The question is are we event planners demanding the right tools or are we making do with highly manual, very repetitive processes? Are we being dinosaurs, not driving change or even refusing to change when there are alternatives, alternatives that will change your event planning life for the better
