Live Events Experiences, Reinvented

As the events industry goes through a crucial phase of recovery, we are all left wondering – what will audience and fan interaction look like in the future?

Whether virtual, in-person or hybrid, audiovisual and emerging tech will be at the heart of creating the next era of live experiences so, if you produce or host events, you’ll need to be aware of what audiences are looking for and what tech is set to accelerate.

We bring together a seasoned group of live event professionals to share their view on emerging new business models, innovative ways of engaging with audiences and creating meaningful experiences.

Discover what you need to do to find opportunity in crisis and stay ahead of the game for the road ahead.

This edition of RISE Spotlight is produced in association with TPi (Total Production International).

January Spotlight:

Harness the Power of Digital Learning

In 2020, pivoting to remote learning became an immediate necessity, rather than an option for businesses and academia, globally. The need to keep students and staff engaged in the learning experience increased the roll-out of existing tools and drove the adoption of new ones.

In 2021, the demand for new interactive technologies will continue to surge. The field is fast developing and shows no signs of slowing down. We examine the technologies boosting learning experiences and the issues around their successful deployment.

We bring together corporates, AV providers, integrators, futurists and educators for a rounded conversation on the future of digital learning.

December Spotlight:

XR in Today’s Reality

We often hear about the potential of XR and for many, it is deemed as simply a complement or supplement to business activities which can provide an innovative edge within product design, development, marketing, or general business processes. However, XR is no longer just an add on, there are multiple use cases to be excited about. During December’s Spotlight on Tuesday 15 December 2020, we looked at some of the most compelling use cases of XR.

This is your opportunity to explore the art of the possible.  So, what’s holding you back?

November Spotlight:

Workspace Evolution

The first RISE Spotlight, launched in November was based around unified communications and collaboration, with the theme of Workspace Evolution.

With the increased shift to remote working and the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this timely subject provides valuable learning and insights into the future development of work and workspaces.
