      How Event Planners Choose Venues

      Choosing a venue is one of the most delicate decisions that event professionals face. A research found what influences that decision.

      The largest trade shows in the meeting and event industry are mainly focused about connecting two audiences: event professionals and venues.

    7. 6 Cost-Effective Web Design Strategies for Event Planners

      6 Cost-Effective Web Design Strategies for Event Planners

      Recently, I have had conversations with a number of event planners who are finding it challenging to launch a website or update the look of an existing site.

      You’ve probably noticed that the cost of engaging a web designer has exploded. Quotes for custom design and development range from $5000 – $12,000. Websites with all the bells can whistles can be even more expensive. This is beyond what many start-ups and small businesses can bare.

      5 Startup Ideas to Help the Event Industry

      Here are 5 ideas for those who want to start up a technology business solving problems for the event industry.

      Whenever I present at technology events I am always asked what is the next big thing.

      I don’t like that.

      I don’t believe in buzzwords or fashion when it gets to tech. I am a fan of innovation and lateral thinking.
