In the 6+ years we have been pumping out content for event professionals on the blog, we’ve had a handful of posts stand out above the rest. We want to give you the all the tricks, secret tips, and event inspiration and trends that will help make your events rise above the rest. So we’ve compiled our most popular, shared, and controversial posts of all time.
We did this for three reasons:
- To give new readers an easy “digest” of posts to start with.
- To give long-time readers an appendix of important posts to revisit when they become more relevant to them.
- To try and get a better sense of what works and what doesn’t.
What we’ve found is that generally, the posts on this list have one of these two characteristics:
- They challenge the status quo of the events industry
- They solve a problem that event and meeting planners have to deal with every day
It was fun looking back and putting this list together of our top event blogs, and we hope it’s helpful for you as well!
