Today on the show – The LINX Spectacular Here at Lanyon, we believe in the power of technology to transform the meetings and events industry. So it should come as no surprise that at Lanyon Live 2016, we put event technology at the forefront of the show. Lanyon Live brought together a group of leaders in the event technology space to create an encompassing event tech experience. We call it the LINX (Lanyon Innovation Networking eXperience). It’s a place where attendees could experience first-hand a wide range of technologies that are changing the way people plan, manage and engage with events. Over the three day conference, I had the pleasure to sit down and interview several of the fine folks who took part in the LINX, to get the scoop on what technologies they were presenting at Lanyon Live, as well as their thoughts on event technology in general, where it stands today and where it’s headed. In this episode, I speak with Tricia Colman of Eved, a Chicago-based software company that specializes payment management for events. Brian Holm of Freeman Company, who was at the LINX showing off some of their Augmented Reality gear. Damany Daniel is the Chief Imaginator of the Event Nerd, a company that brings technology to events in truly engaging ways. Joel Martin is the Vice President of Brands and Experiential for Brightbox, which offers secure charging stations for mobile devices. Rounding out this episode is my chat with Sam Stanton, Chief Engagement Officer of Redbutton.tv. In addition to event media services – like event recap and promotional videos, redbutton.tv helps event planners manage the social media buz surrounding their events.
