Events and event tech with Julius Solaris Part 2 : Episode 006

5 Oct, 2018

“When I talk about VR, I talk mostly about 360 degree live video, which I think is one of the most untapped opportunities for event professionals right now.”

“I think that smart badges need to become the standard. I think we’re missing on a huge opportunity when it gets to analyzing traffic and data.”

The new world of events is about Actionable data, better understanding of buyer behaviour, mid-course corrections on existing events and actionable insights to help us improve future ones; providing attendees with a much richer and more personalized experience.”

“I’m desperate about facial recognition (in events) in the sense that I don’t understand what is there to think about?”


Three Blind Mice talk with Julius Solaris, founder of the Event Managers Blog about what event technology we should be aware of and considering as part of event solutions.
