The rapid shift away from face-to-face events due to the COVID-19 pandemic has meant a steep drop in revenue, loss of jobs and widespread disruption in the meetings industry. But it has also created a situation that could significantly accelerate innovation in the world of event technology.

The founder of Vesuvio Ventures and a serial entrepreneur himself in the events sector shares his thoughts on the long-term changes we might expect from this upheaval — and how our current experiences with technology could form the basis for the tools we use for years to come. True innovation and fresh perspectives, he adds, could well come from outside the meetings industry.
