One event tech trend that’s gaining significant traction lately is video. We’ve discovered articles about record-breaking projection mapping, how to use immersive mixed reality in events, and the Grammys autonomous robotic cameras taking center stage.
So if you want your next event to really call attention to itself, video is the way to go. We’ll even help you learn how to wow your audience using event AV.
We’ve always expected VR to be the future of gaming. It turns out even event planners can make the most out of this new tech. Everyone’s heard about the sporting events using VR tech to stream their events live, whether from viewers’ phones or their own headsets. Some groups are even using VR to enhance attendees’ experience at their events. With all the innovation happening around VR, it’s going to be a big year for event organizers to show people what they’ve got.
A lot more people are working from home these days (the author included) But where can you still get a good office vibe without its downsides? Simple: through co-working spaces. These are places where self-employed and work-from-home individuals get their share of networking and meeting without spending too much money, time, or effort. Their rising popularity has drawn the attention of all sorts of remote workers and the community they’ve built, making co-working spaces a desirable service to offer.
You might think giving people all the options will make them love your meetings more. But it’s becoming increasingly obvious that an abundance of choices might be the reason why people hate meetings. From too many, and often repetitive, meetings to plain just too much information, toning down your meetings might be the solution to happier attendees.
It’s not just VR that we should be paying attention to. The rise of MR – or mixed reality, the combination of virtual and augmented reality – deserves its own moment of recognition. In fact, many event organizers are discovering ways to integrate this tech into their latest projects. From creating holographic worlds to adding spectacle back to spectating, MR is fast becoming one of the game changers for keynote presentations, sporting events, and music festivals.
As the world changes, so does the industry of events planning and management. Most of these new trends are a product of the changing needs that millennials bring into the picture. They require seamless online ticket purchasing experiences. They want their events to be engaging and innovative. And let’s not forget that they favor DIY events and meetups as they converge with the online communities they’ve come to form.
The Grammys was a real event to behold this year. And who should we thank for such great coverage? Other than its organizers, the team’s camera robots deserve a huge standing ovation themselves. Easy to use, effective, and intuitive, these bots are giving spectators and viewers like us amazing glamour shots of celebrities, venues, and behind-the-scenes takes.
In order to craft the best event you possibly can, every detail must be thought of. And that of course includes serving the best food. You wouldn’t want to call the first caterer comes to mind, right? It’s important to first know about your event’s gastronomic needs and start your search based on that. Be sure to look into reviews, cost and location of potential caterers for your next event. It might just be the icing to the perfect cake.

I don’t know about you, but we here at Endless would absolutely love to get our hands on that awesome projection mapping tech.
