Both in-person and online delegates can engage in panel discussions and talks, designed to boost event organisers’ skills and confidence in delivering events in the new landscape.

EventLAB have revealed the most subscribed for sessions so far: 

  • ‘Hear from real experiences of running post-pandemic events,’ a discussion with event planners and venues.
  • ‘Hybrid events in practice: Key trends and takeaways,’ with guests including event technology experts, White Light Ltd.
  • ‘Case Study of a carbon-neutral event,” a talk from Mark Bannister, technical director of the recent COP26 Summit

CPD-certified workshops will also be on offer for in-person delegates throughout the day and all delegates can partake in networking, either in-person or online through GoTo Events and Wildgoose team building.

The audio-visual equipment for both in-person and virtual experiences will be managed by event technology providers, White Light ltd.

White Light’s venues director, Jonjo Glynn, said: “We are delighted that the industry will be able to reconnect once again for EventLAB. Central Hall Westminster is the ideal venue to host this in its new hybrid format with its leading-edge technology and versatile event space and we are very happy to be supplying the AV services to enhance the entire programme of talks, workshops, panel discussions, the main exhibition and both in-person and remote networking sessions.

“As the events industry starts getting back to a new normality, this is a much-needed opportunity to explore the changing landscapes of events and sector-wise insights of the future.”

There is still time to sign up to the in-person and online EventLAB 2021 event.
