As the world of events continues to pivot, we see a rush of technology solutions popping with the promise of seamless virtual events. But most of the conversation is being driven by marketers who have an agenda, not actual event experts.

2020 has been a challenging year, but it was also a time to learn and experiment. As we approach the new year, what are the learnings we will apply to improve the way we manage events during a time of uncertainty? Our team at Attendease got together to share our favorite resources for event professionals, so you can learn the latest trends and ideas from industry experts. 

On October 23rd we celebrate Event Organizers Day, and we, at Attendease, would like to do more than just say thank you for all your efforts. 2020 has proven to be a challenging year, and our team wants to share something that is meaningful and genuine. So we created a list of resources to help event planners cope during these strange times, and we are also launching our very first Giveaway as a way to say thank you for all the hard work you do!
