Event Trends for 2017 [Panel Discussion]

EventMB – the number one blog for event professionals – recently launched their latest free report: 10 Event Trends for 2017.

Covering event technology, meeting design, venues & destinations and marketing & social media it is essential and recommended reading for everyone that works in the event industry. Written by Julius Solaris, Ruud Janssen, Padraic Gilligan and Nick Borelli it is full of inspiration and examples to inspire you.

At ibtm world in Barcelona I moderated an hour-long event trends panel discussion with Julius, Nick and Padraic, which is definitely worth a watch to learn from these event legends. Click here to watch the recording of the event trends panel.

Nothing stands still for long in the world of events so it was great to talk to experts in different areas of the event world to identify the current trends and find out why these event trends had made the list, and also those that just missed out on the top ten.

The Event Trends Report is a free annual report and the most respected (and original) trends update for the event industry.

It was standing room only for the panel, with nearly 200 people coming along for the session. Thank you to everyone that took the time to listen and all the positive feedback!

    This is really interesting, I think this year is going to be big in terms of new events, as people are constantly looking ways to try new things and reinvent traditional concepts. Marketing and social media is constantly evolving particularly online, in terms of the way we engage and follow organisations and events. The music promotion challenge is really about getting your music heard, by increasing numbers, the public and fans to take action and build this trend to further a field.
