Hackathons for events might sound a bit strange at first. Even the most creative and out of the box event planners out there can frown at the thought of it. But the truth is, as professionals of the industry, it’s our job to consistently push forward in the idea department. And especially when it comes to the ideas that ensure the attendee experience goes from good to amazing. This is exactly where hackathons for events come in!
In this week’s #EventIcons, we’re tackling the somewhat unexplored world of hackathons for events. More specifically, how they can work alongside other aspects of your event to promote engagement and conversation between your attendees. And in order to do so, our fantastic hosts Lindsay Martin-Bilbrey and Alex Plaxen welcome a very special guest. The Vice-President of Sales of global event giant Experient, James Murdock. Join them as these three iconic figures discuss the exciting opportunities offered by hackathons for events. Press play, it’s #EventIcons o’clock!
We want to help keep you up-to-date with the latest and greatest!
