Across the three-day conference, EventTech 2017 showcased the latest technologies, newest trends, top best practices, and biggest case studies.
Our team was proud to join the conference creators, Event Marketer magazine, and take the stage three times for two different fast-moving sessions (due to its' popularity our 15 Tech Trends presentation both opened and, with an encore, closed Day 1 of the conference).
But, in case you missed it, during the conference we also revealed the 2018 edition of our popular Event Technology Landscape. With nearly 2x growth in just two years, our landscape - just like the EvenTech conference - continues to show the rapid growth and impact of event and experiential marketing technologies.
