CES X METAVERSE – Stage 1

CES is in full(ish) swing, and this edition will likely be the last before the metaverse transforms how one of the largest live events will be organized over the coming years. Yes, everyone still wants to gather together in-person – we’re only human, after all. But, as this year’s smaller-scale CES has shown, not everyone […]

CES: Push The Experience, Not The Product

Many of us are looking forward to returning to CES in person, to walk among rows of shiny, pocket-sized gadgets, rainbow displays and stand before larger-than-life LEDs – giving us that feeling akin to seeing the toy store newly stocked for Christmas when we were children. I remember strolling down the halls of booths in […]

ADA and Event Design

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990 and was a landmark piece of legislation in the US that acknowledged the struggles of people with disabilities and made any form of discrimination against them illegal.

In celebration, we’ve put a Spotify playlist together, across genres […]

The Future of Event Venues

Summer is in the air and is the world finally starting to get back to normal?  With 50% of all adult Americans vaccinated and seeing Madison Square Garden filled with 15,000 New York Knicks fans for the NBA playoffs, it’s starting the feel like it! My Instagram feed is filled with weddings, travel & concerts again, which gives […]

Gaming Tech in Events

The warm summer months are here, COVID-19 restrictions are loosening, and events are back in full swing. But how do we show up at summer events like July 4th, Bastille Day, Juneteenth, the Euro and concerts in the safest way? How do we attend B2B events and consumer activations while adding to global efforts to […]

It’s an opportunity to focus on how to achieve good mental health and raise awareness within our team and the wider community. It’s a known fact that, inevitably, most of us will experience some type of […]

AR Glasses in the Future of Events

Augmented Reality, or AR, is quickly becoming a part of our everyday lives. From AR-assisted surgeries at John Hopkins that allow surgeons to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of their patient care, to social media leaders, like Snapchat, changing the way we pose for the camera with their AR powered Lens Studio. But more recently, […]
