Before joining Etherlive I was an Event Manager for a large event organiser. It involved a lot of travel and I got to work with some fantastic brands and customers.
My brief when joining Etherlive was to develop a greater relationship with exhibition and corporate event professionals. Many events they are operating continue to rely on poor technology, either from venues or from in house IT teams who don’t have the time or bandwidth to focus on one event or another.
Whilst thinking about how best to show what Etherlive can do, it got me thinking about what I used to attend, Mash Medias International Confex. This year taking place in the enormous Excel. So, I developed a plan and we have agreed to be one of the sponsors for the event. This includes a VIP drinks evening on the first night (Tuesday 25th Feb) anyone who wants to come along please let me know!
Its all about engagement and showing corporate and event organisers they don’t have to live with the IT from the venue – there are other options!
Planning the stand has been fun – since it’s Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day!) we have decided to host a pancake flipping competition! You will spot us a mile off with our Etherlive aprons and prizes including classy prosecco!
As part of our learning series of speaking events our directors Chris Green and Tom McInerney will be speaking in sessions on both days.
Tom will be speaking on Day 1 at 11:40am in the eventTech theatre about technology for sustainable events and then at 1.45pm on the main stage at Event Production Show about Sports Synergies and Opportunities for the wider Event Industry.
Chris will be speaking on Day 2 at 2pm in the eventTech theatre discussing what are the hottest trends in exhibition and meetings right now, and what this will mean for Wi-Fi connectivity and capability.
So please come and find out why Etherlive are so flipping great either on stand I32C, during one of the three talks or/and at the International Confex drinks reception.
