Let’s Talk About Mobile at Event Tech Live 2018

Whoa! We’re about to reach a landmark 3 million registrations having gone via our Gleanin Connect platform.

These 3 million registrations have been generated by 600+ events run by almost 100 different organisers – which has put us in a unique position of being able to access to some seriously big data on how, when, where and even why, people register for exhibitions.

At Event Tech Live – held from the 7 & 8 November at the Old Truman Brewery, London – we’ll launch a white paper which will convey this unique insight into how visitors interact with event registration.

Our aim is to help exhibition organisers gain a better insight into today’s visitor behaviour and, using the trends we see, start planning for the future.

We’ll also be discussing and debating the key findings of this paper with a panel of industry experts in our session The future of event registration taking place on the Expo & Engage Stage at 14:00 – 14:30 on Wednesday 7th November.
