The afternoon featured experts from WIRED, Panasonic, Arcstream AV, Poken, N200|GES and RMG Networks guiding attendees through the new technology trends hitting the market. These included virtual reality, motion mapping, SMART events, digital disruptors and artificial intelligence.

Graham Pope, group commercial director at Blitz|GES, said: “The Blitz|GES Connection 2017 has been a huge success. It’s an amazing opportunity for forward-thinking event professionals to network, learn and engage with new technologies. The Science Museum provided a unique and inspiring backdrop for the event.”

In addition to the seminars, attendees were able to experience interactive demonstrations of new technologies in the museum’s Welcome Wing, plus a panel session with N200|GES, Poken, Gleanin and Reed Business Information Events.
