Event Tech Tribe launches two collaborative style conferences for event professionals


May 16th 2017: New York City, NY The Event Tech Tribe are announcing a series of can’t-miss events for event marketing professionals. The two events will be held in New York City and Washington D.C on the 6th and 7th of June respectively.

The roadshow style event series are a deliberate adaptation of events that are typically put on for professionals in the industry. Aptly named ‘Unite’, the event series is all about bringing together members of the industry to collaborate and share insights. Organizers, the Event Tech Tribe, plan to coordinate and publish the findings, naming every attendee as contributors.

“We’re a Tribe of best-in-craft event tech but we’re also a tribe of event professionals,” said Tribe leader and CEO of Swoogo, Leonora Valvo, “we know there’s a lot of noise out there about data and ROI. Planners are told to collect data, tech suppliers provide numbers - but that's only half of the picture of what makes events awesome. We’re expecting an immense amount of intel to come out of these events, which we will be furiously bringing together into a report to share with the industry,” she continued.

The Event Tech Tribe is a newly formed collaboration of several ‘best-in-craft’ event technology providers. Swoogo, Hubb, Glisser, TRC, and ShowGizmo currently make up the Tribe; together they work together to help event organizers have more seamless tech experiences at their events. “We know the shared appreciation for collaboration is something that’s not only important to us, it’s also important to event professionals,”said Tribe leader, Marie-Claire Andrews, “So Unite is an opportunity for us all to introduce each other and share experiences for the benefit of the wider industry.

The events promise to inspire attendees and help re-define what it means to be an event professional in 2017. Both afternoons will include thought pieces from Tribe leaders and industry gurus, followed by intimate ‘Tables of Interest’: a fresh take on breakout sessions where attendees are encouraged to share stories, debate and challenge traditional opinions.

Registration for both events is free and is expected to sell out quickly. For more information and to register visit www.eventtechtribe.com/unite.
