Event 3.0 How Generation Y & Z are re-shaping the events industry

Author:   Shuli Golovinski

Our world is changing, and more importantly, so is the event industry.  A new generation is rising to the fore and they don’t just want to sit around and be talked at.

As event builders, we need to be aware of the changing needs of the latest generations of people coming to our events.  These are people who understand a message in ten minutes instead of forty-five and who can pick it up within four slides.
