The shortlist for Event Technology Awards (ETA)’s eighth edition has been revealed, highlighting the role technology has played in helping the industry serve new demands post-COVID-19.

The record numbers of submissions for new category, Best Pivot from Physical to Virtual, means it’s a long short-list there and presents one of many challenges for the judges tasked with ordering them and picking the best.

Winners will be revealed in November as part of Event Tech Live’s hybrid week, which stretches either side of the physical show at the Old Truman Brewery on the Wednesday and Thursday.
