Hot Off the Stages

15 Tech Trends to Bet On for 2019

Here's what we presented at EventTech 2018.

Across the three-day conference, EventTech 2018 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 twice to bring back the conference's perennial favorite session.

During the conference we also revealed the 2019 edition of our popular Event Technology Landscape. With a completely overhauled set of categories and 444 providers (nearly 2x growth since our 2018 edition), our landscape - just like the EvenTech conference - continues to show the rapid growth and impact of event and experiential marketing technologies.
