The rapid advancement of technology is changing the way almost every industry operates – and the events industry is no exception. There always seems to be some new tech start-up or trend that’s entering the industry space ready to help improve the effectiveness of events and make event professionals’ jobs easier – so we thought we’d give you a quick run-down of what we think are some of the most interesting start-ups in the events space at the moment.

Crowdsigns

This start-up specialises in imaging – specifically creating customisable photo props so that event exhibitors or brands can create an engaging guest photo booth experience. Photo booths are becoming more popular at events; the props provided by Crowdsigns have been hailed as ‘icebreakers’ by the Event Manager Blog and a fun way to make guests feel less awkward when being photographed. http://www.dbpixelhouse.co.uk/home

E-180

An interesting concept, the E-180 is a ‘match-making portal’ for event visitors and exhibitors who want to share and absorb information. They create match-making tools for those looking to learn and share details both on- and offline, creating learning hubs for interested parties.

B2Match

These guys specialise in helping professionals schedule and create appointments with clients, turning any events professional into a communications and meetings Cupid – or so they say. Although the article does align B2Match with the supposedly growing Confibition market (something we discussed in a previous blog with some trepidation), we can see how their software could help.

FoxyTasks

Finally, the FoxyTasks tools help events professionals stay on top of project collaboration, budgeting and team management – meaning all those involved in events can ensure the day runs smoothly with a platform more modern than Excel.

What do you make of the above tech start-ups? Do you think they have the ability to enhance the experience exhibitors, brands and customers have at events?
