The event landscape is rapidly evolving as new ways to execute events are being established. “But one thing is for sure – event technology and innovation is likely to remain a cornerstone of the ever-changed event engage industry,” says Mike Lysko, CEO and founder of Flock Eventing Platform.

“Many thought it would be years before technology would become so integrated into the events industry and that they would have time to up skill, but the time is now, and the event industry has had to adapt or die.”

This is abundantly clear when examining the current and emerging event trends for 2021. While social movements such as diversity and inclusivity are gaining long-overdue consideration, and sustainability remains an ongoing concern, most of the trends we are seeing are linked to technological developments. From enhanced Virtual Reality tools to in-app audio translations, and more, tech is playing an increasingly bigger role in event planning.

Lysko adds, “The global pandemic has fast tracked the technological revolution. Many thought it would be years before technology would become so integrated into the events industry and that they would have time to up skill, but the time is now, and the event industry has had to adapt or die.”
