There's no doubt that technology has become commonplace in b2b events today. Event professionals are constantly on the look out for the next cool piece of tech they can introduce to their client. It makes the whole event process so much easier, more interactive and just a whole lot more fun.

As the role technology plays in our events cycle grows, will it get to the point where it takes over the human element of the process? Apps, live-streaming and virtual reality are all cool trends that definitely need to be explored. However, far from taking over the human side of events, I think it's more about integrating new technologies into events. People will always want to communicate and interact with other people, but it's how the process will take place during events in the future that I think will be the most interesting.
