On Tuesday, 14th May 2013, over 50 event planners and organisers, including representatives from PWC and BRE Group, attended our Event Tech breakfast briefing. The briefing explored how today’s event and conference industries could turn simple events into amazing events by incorporating the latest technological innovations.
