Event Tech Live 2018 (ETL) increased to two days this year, along with introducing new elements and meeting zones – and its numbers are up 35 per cent on last year as a result.
In business for 18 months, Lineup Ninja’s conference management technology, won the Launchpad competition, ETL’s annual showcase for the best new tech, while the shows five stages provided sought-after content.
Laura Davidson, director of Tag Digital, commented: “The speaker sessions are really on point, throughout the show, everybody in the industry comes, so it’s the perfect event for us.
Adam Parry, co-founder of Event Tech Live, added: “There were more than 500 meetings in two days at the 1-2-1 Zone, 94 per cent of the them booked in advance, and the New Experience Zone made a big splash too, people really benefitted from getting hands-on, putting tech to the test in their own context.
“More than the numbers, more than anything else, the feedback from sponsors, exhibitors, visitors and speakers is our gauge for how well we’re doing. The show started as a partnership, a common goal, with those companies, those individuals, and that’s exactly what it still is.
“I’m delighted with how the first two-day ETL has gone and I thank all of the above for playing their part.”
