is talking with Catalyst Events and Experiential Marketing Podcast

Trends, EMS 2017, and Using Innovation Labs to Amp Up Attendee Engagement

In this episode, our hosts — Kate Romano and Brent Turner — take listeners on a three part journey.

In the first segment, we are back for another trend-oriented conversation with Cramer’s senior director of strategic planning, Joe Lovett. Through our collaboration with Event Marketer magazine, we have identified three big trends that experiential marketers need to be on top of: Selfies 2.0, Live Social Video, and High-Tech Office Space.

In our second segment, Cramer’s head of activations, Tim Owens, account director, Danielle Gorman, and director of marketing, Kate Romano, share the highlights from Event Marketer’s 2017 Event Marketing Summit (EMS), along with the four big themes that emerged.

Finally, Danielle Gorman is back to wrap the episode with David Polinchock, former director of both PwC’s Experience Center and AT&T’s Innovation Lab. Together they recap the standing room only session they led at EMS, Using ‘Innovation Labs’ to Amp Up Attendee Engagement, including the six attributes needed for successful implementation.

If you have feedback on our podcast, ideas for future episodes, or want to keep the conversation going, we’d love to hear from our listeners.
