The Business, Trends, and Growth Pillar

Post-Pandemic Work Dynamics.

The post-pandemic era has profoundly changed the workplace, with a growing interest in hybrid and remote working arrangements. This move has significant repercussions for the event sector. As businesses adjust to these developments, selling group tickets and new event formats have gained popularity.

Crisis in the Event Industry

A key challenge for the sector is the labor shortage. Many professionals are hesitant to return to the events industry, resulting in an urgent need to attract and develop new talent. Strategies to address the situation will be a major focus of the Congress, as industry executives look for methods to reinvigorate the workforce.


Explosion of Events

Despite these limitations, there is an explosion of events, particularly those focused on substance and future-oriented topics. Julius Solaris, an industry leader and the CEO of Boldpush, will discuss how to create compelling, sustainable events that fit the changing needs of audiences.
