  1. 1. Technology Event Case study.Online Version
  2. 2. Event Tech Circus used sixbits of technology tomanage the eventmanagement processincluding two of ourstartups.
  3. 3. We used the single eventEventManagerBlog WordPressTheme. The theme would later winan “Honourable Mention” fromEvent Managers at the Circus. Itwas so flexible! William noted thatit look less than 3 hours frompurchasing the website to having itlive!
  4. 4. Developing a bit of eventtechnology that is as usefulas it is ease to use it surelythe goal of every eventtech company!
  5. 5. William never planned on usingetouches. However as he wasfamiliar with a part of the system(surveys) he ended up using thisrather than investigating anothersystem. He thought this was aninteresting point for Startups.
  6. 6. Despite William loving thissystem both Julius andDerrick didn’t like it. Williamhighlighted this as anexample when anorgansier has to be beflexible and support theevent stakeholders.
  7. 7. Conferize - the eventual winner of“EventTechCircus AmsterdamEvent Tech Startup 2013” - wasused to promote the event & toengage an audience. Conferizeattracted 150 on line followers &has given Gallus Events a greatplatform to turn these onlineattendees into paying physicalparticipants.
  8. 8. All that we need at themoment to keep on top ofour Social Media and forfree! Laura at WYTSAincluded this in her top techas well.
  9. 9. William highlighted how difficult itwas for most organisers to stay ontop of event technology. They haveso many other things to do andusing the technology to supporttheir events and their attendees isactually only a small part of anorganisers job.
  10. 10. William really felt that for mostevent technology the more you putinto it the more you were likely toget out of it.
  11. 11. Organsiers can’t get too hung upabout using the same technologyfor each event. All events aredifferent and what works well for asmall conference may not work fora large one. Organsiers have totailor the technology to support theevent.
  12. 12. Avoid vanity technology purchases!Really try to look at technologythrough your attendees eyes: areyou adding VALUE to theirexperience? Also consider yourother stakeholders whenconsidering using technology.
  13. 13. William wanted to highlight thathybrid and streaming has a vitalrole to play in a lot of events.However adding those elementsadds a whole new level oftechnological awareness andunderstanding by event organisers.
  14. 14. We used six of our startups during our event. After the event we will use Peecho to allowattendees to download a special issue of Event Manager Blog. As part of the uniqueaspect of Event Tech Circus we strive to integrate EVERY event startup’s technology intoour event.There were three supporting technologies that we couldn’t do without!We used RealLifeConnect for our badges, speakerscore to rate our speakers, meethubfor our 1-2-1 meetings, twoppy and showmappr as the event apps and preseria (whowould also win an “Honourable Mention”) to handle all our presentations.
