The #EventTech Digest - July 1, 2014 -

Action! Adventure! Big Data!

In celebration of a holiday weekend in the U.S. learn about generating big data at the leading tourist destination.

NFC action, a chance to get on a boat or a motorcycle, and a pile of free event planning resources. If this week’s newsletter had a director it would be Michael Bay!!!

Also in this issue The #EventTech Podcast features Nancy Zavada talking with @gadgetboy about green and sustainable events. 

Until next week,


John J. Wall (@johnjwall)
VP Marketing


PS: There will be no #EventTech Chat this week as nobody wants to stay late on July 3rd. We’ll be back Thursday 7/12 at 5p Eastern time. Tune in to the hashtag to participate, or stop in on the Google Hangout.
