RISE Spotlight - Live Events Experiences, Reinvented

January’s RISE Spotlight had the theme of Live Events Experiences, Reinvented. Produced in association with TNW and powered by TPi, it took place on Wednesday 3 February 2021.

The event brought together professionals from many aspects of live music and live events for a rounded conversation on how live events have migrated online as a result of the pandemic, and how they will continue to adapt in the future.

Recovery rates vary around the globe

According to AVIXA, the live events sector continues to be one of the hardest hit by COVID-19, with a 25% decline in revenue compared with the 2019 forecast in initial research. Final analysis, however, may show this decline to be as much as 40%.

A hybrid future: the startups shaping virtual events

The shift to virtual and livestreamed events during the past 12 months has created opportunities for a variety of enterprising young companies.

The digitisation of live events

The ISE Reporter Roundtable at the RISE Spotlight on live events addressed some of the challenges of the past year, the surprises it brought and what the future of live events could look like.

Concert tours in a post-Covid world

TPi Editor Stew Hume was ‘On the Sofa’ with Wob Roberts, chairman of the Tour Production Group, considering the ongoing and future state of the live events industry and crew workforce following the effects of COVID-19.

Virtual Meets discuss Covid recovery and boosting female roles

The Road to Recovery and Diversity Backstage were the topics up for discussion at the two Watercooler Virtual Meets sessions that concluded RISE Spotlight: Live Events Experiences, Reimagined.

The Big Read

Stew Hume, Editor of TPi (Total Production International), discusses how the events industry used its customary ingenuity and innovation to keep live music alive through 2020 and into 2021.

Live events – boosting diversity and responding to the pandemic

In this series of interviews with leading experts in ISE technology areas, we’re exploring industry issues including skills, diversity, inclusion and culture.

Malle Kaas – CEO, Women in Live Music

“For almost two decades I felt so out of place with my passion for sound engineering. I did not see other girls, and had all this attention drawn to me, because I was a girl.”

Bryan Raven – Managing Director, White Light Ltd

“Adaptability has definitely been a key value. I don’t think, a year ago, I would have ever predicted that we would have been hosting church services, comedy nights and music videos in our warehouse as a way of earning money.”

Part of the solution

Live events is just one of the sectors where digital signage is part of the solution for the new normal, says Florian Rotberg, Managing Director of invidis consulting.
