Developments in our sector make it less and less necessary for people to come together physically to exchange experiences and make contact. Thanks to Skype, FaceTime and Google Hangouts we can meet at a distance. By apps like Periscope and the possibility of live streaming on Facebook, we don’t have to go outside anymore for a meeting abroad. Do live events still have a future? Certainly! This ‘Trend in Events’ is a reassuring trend: Events are here to stay.

Unique experiences

Personal meetings and live events will also remain extremely important in the coming years. In the business to business sector this has to do with the fact that people like to do business with like-minded people. Personal contact is still indispensable. This means, for the segment business to consumer, we as visitor have to keep searching for new incentives and unique experiences. And that is what you as organizer can play on. That one concert you could enjoy at home was amazing, but you weren’t there. In the year 2017 an event still offers a unique experience, which in spite of the technology still cannot be matched from a distance. We do see at Bano more and more opportunities to add more dimension to your event with technic, by also offering your event digitally. More about this later on!
