An event without technology is nearly unheard of these days.
Technology has become such an integral part of the way Event Professionals communicate and promote events; the way we craft the event experience and most certainly a way of delivering the key act or speaker.
Getting up to speed with the latest tech trends is no easy task for event professionals, especially if they are not tech savvy.
3 Event Technology Trends To Create An Incredible Event Experience
- All things video. With effects such as edge blended video display, pixel mapping and doing unique things with video beyond “here is my power point presentation”.
- Way more complex set-ups. An industry term has not been coined yet, but in the concert industry they are starting to see “pre – programmed, automatic set movements” with some event professionals starting out on a smaller scale with one or two automated movements. Right now, the trend is most pervasive within the concert industry.
- Integrated video walls. An effect that allows event professionals to dramatically change the set look and feel without actually changing anything about it. This is quite trendy for concerts right now but is spilling over into large corporate events.
There is no doubt that integrating these trends into your next event could have some seriously awesome impacts. Keep in mind these are fancy displays and effects but your content is still king.

Ryan MacAdam’s main predication is that there will be more audience interactive capabilities. This is the concept of bringing the audience to the presentation rather than bringing the presentation to the audience where they interact with the speaker and the presentation. For example, don’t be surprised to see smartphones and tablets utilized as a tool that the audience uses before, during and after the presentation to engage with the speaker and the content.
“I’m just waiting for the day I get to do the tech for a ‘choose your own adventure presentation’”
Engagement will definitely be a top goal at many events over the next few years. By 2024, expect to see all events utilizing captivating event technology and integrating engagement from their attendees right into the flow of the event, presentation, or main event.
