Event Tech Circus: The Event for Startups and #Eventprofs

We are happy to be Media Partner of Event Tech Circus, a unique event for startups, event organizers and investors to be held in Amsterdam on the 7th of May 2013.

While I was at IMEX last May, I had a pressing thought.

What about connecting startups and investors in the event industry? I was there with Derrick, Jasper and William and we discussed how it could become reality.

William took the idea forward and suggested that event professionals would love to participate and get to know about the latest technology for events.

Derrick and Jasper, two seasoned event startup professionals, confirmed that startups would appreciate to have feedback from event professionals and investors.

Event Tech Circus was born.

A Unique Opportunity for Event Technology Professionals

William together with Derrick and Jasper took the lead and coordinated what is going to be a unique gathering for event technology. Especially here in good old Europe.

Event Tech Circus will take place in Amsterdam, at Amsterdam RAI, one of the most popular exhibition spaces in Europe, at the forefront of innovation in the industry.

The event will take place on the 7th of May. All the information is available on the website (proudly powered by Event Manager Theme)

Who Should Attend and Why?

From the website:

. We will curate our audience. If we are to achieve our rather grand designs for this event it is exceptionally important that we have not just the right number but the right people in the room. We will be selecting the right Event Organisers from across Europe. We are after the thought leaders: the influencers. We want those not too shy to say, no DEMAND, exactly what it is they want from event technology. We expect 50 – 100 organisers to attend. Attending Event Tech Circus AMSTERDAM is initially by invitation only. Once we have selected and filled our slots we will open up the event to other attendees.

Technology start-ups have to be at a particular stage in their development to qualify. They also have to bring something to the circus. Every start-up will be asked to offer their product or service for free (if appropriate) to our attendees for a select period of time. We expect 20 start ups to take part.

Investors will have a proven track record in investing in start-up companies or at least a passion and a purse. We expect 20 investors to be part of Event Tech Circus Amsterdam.

If you are at within a couple of hours flight away from Amsterdam, I would invest the money to attend.

Conference Programme

Together with the above terrific opportunities, there is a quite significant conference programme.

I am happy to confirm I will be there with Event Manager Blog team and present about event technology and social media.

William is putting together an amazing line up. This alone is worth your investment in the reasonably priced ticket.

In Conclusion

This is not your average event industry gathering we are used to. Event Tech Circus is something new, an event that needs to be supported by the whole #eventprofs community.

If you believe technology is making an impact on our beloved industry, you need to attend. I will be happy to see you in Amsterdam and to listen to your experience. Can’t wait.

Head to Event Tech Circus website and share it with your colleagues. I am sure they will be thankful.
