How would you describe Event Tech Live to someone who has never been?

Thinking about technology terms, slang or acronyms which one do you hate the most and why?

“One source of truth” – even though I say it too

If you could invite any fictional character to be a keynote speaker at the event, who would it be and why?

Beth Dutton from Yellowstone. Honest, unfiltered and provocative. We all need a bit more chutzpah from event speakers!

If event technology had a personality, what kind of personality traits do you think it would have?

It would be an ESTJ personality type (one of the Myers Briggs categories, I recommend everyone does the test if you haven’t already!). 

It likes people, but is the least emotionally-driven personality type. Practical, level headed, clear and solution-oriented – it often focuses on facts rather than feeling. 

Sometimes, it might have too much to drink and tell people the cold hard truth (even if it’s tone deaf), and then the next day will wonder why they’re crying about it.

“The ESTJs solve problems by expertly applying and adapting past experience. They like work where they can achieve immediate, visible, and tangible results.” – this is event technology all over.
