Event Tech

This page is a curated collection of articles on event tech for event pros by event pros. It’s the perfect place to learn from experts, like your fellow vendors, and get inspired.

At ThymeBase, we build event planning software, and so we need to keep our fingers on the pulse of tech in the event space. But event tech isn’t just the latest software or mobile app. Event tech is about how event professionals interact with the digital world to create memorable, magical events. And that could indeed mean new event-specific software. But we also discuss existing non-event software that helps event pros deliver better experiences for their clients.

We share tips on using event tech and sometimes how to avoid technology, so your event business and work-life are enhanced, rather than overwhelmed.
