When we talk about core technologies, we are referring to technological advancement like 4G and LTE networks, technology that powers everything we do. These are technologies that keep us connected and make emergent technology possible and accessible to consumers and event planners. A little more understated at CES 2017 were some key core technologies that are less tangible, but have revolutionary implications on how technology will affect our lives over the next 2 to 3 years, what they are REALLY capable of and how they’ll change the way we power events.

Event Technology is here to stay and is only getting more prevalent. On November 22nd, Our very own Josh Coulas (MediaLab Manager) and Anthony Vade (Account Manager and snapchatter extraordinaire) took to the stage at ILEAtalks to present some of the most important event technologies of 2016. I know sometimes it can get overwhelming and at times hard to keep up.
Last week we had the pleasure of hosting the very first of our FMAV Webinar Series. In this month's webinar, we were joined by Trevor Lui (International Centre), Stefani Dunn (Decor & More), and Jamie Richardson (FMAV) to take everyone through how they can elevate their corporate Holiday party with great eats, decor, and new technology. These are just a few of the top trends in decor, catering, and technology we talked about.
Trade shows can be intimidating events. For both planners and suppliers they bring a unique set of logistical challenges and require an extra level of coordination as you work with all of the exhibitors, fellow suppliers, and the venue to coordinate a very complex event all while staying focused on the attendees experience and making sure that they get the most out of their time on the trade show floor.
Snapchat has come along way from its “7 seconds and it’s gone” photo format. With features such as my story, video, and geo-filters, Snapchat has become the main platform for social engagement for celebrities, businesses, internet personalities, and many #EventProfs.
