It’s 2019, social media is more alive and useful than ever, the number of digital influencers are growing by the number each day and events are getting more niche and clients are getting more digital-savvy. Considering all of the factors mentioned, event organizers need to step up their game to adapt to an evolving clientele.
According to Event Management Blog, more and more companies are offering a one-stop shop experience, making clients’ expectations higher whenever they seek the services of event organizers. In this age of technology and social media, event organizers need to step-up their game to fulfill the growing and evolving needs of clients.
One of the developing technology in event planning is Guest Management via Facial Recognition. If before, event organizers have to manually look for the name of a guest to verify if he or she is on the list or to locate designated seating, there is now a technology where guests can easily be managed by facial recognition. This kind of advancement in event planning will definitely make guest management easier but clients also need to expect a hefty price to pay for this technology.
Another development being worked up in the field if event planning is the Group Tech Experiences or VR Experience. Put simply, a live 360-degree VR video will be set-up so that guests who cannot attend the event can still experience the event as if they were there. This kind of technology will surely be a game-changer for future events.
Sooner or later, there might also be event planning apps for each and every event organizer. Some also visualize an event organizing booking app, where all local event planners can be viewed along with their rates and portfolio. Although these event planning trends and technology are still in the works, it won’t be long until these will be materialized.
