The 2019 iteration of Events Uncovered has been hailed a success by exhibitors and attendees, after taking place in Sydney on Tuesday 2 July.
Held at Verandah Bar for the first time, the event saw more than 500 attendees through the door keen to explore the latest event venues and suppliers.
On arrival, delegates printed their name tags at the Sprintr by AV1 kiosks and picked up one of our exclusive Events Uncovered x Merchgirls tote bags before heading inside.
Verandah Bar was transformed into an event paradise, with 25 exhibitors decking out their stands with floral displays, dance floors, pop-up cocktail bars, even live animals.
Over in the Spice Temple of Knowledge, delegates enjoyed seven expert speaker presentations and panels.
Party Higher’s silent conference headphones were in use to cut out surrounding noise and give the speakers full attention, while The Visual Storytellers were on hand to illustrate the sessions in real time.
Karen Jacobsen, aka The GPS Girl, kicked off the program sharing her story of becoming the original Australian voice of iPhone’s Siri.
Next up, Chad Davis (Musicland), Adam Harriden (INVNT), Michelle Sargent (CWT Meetings & Events) and Caroline Hutchison (Backdrops Fantastic Australia) gathered for a panel discussion about the attendee experience and how to create “bespoke” experiences for guests.
Toni McAllister (Sprintr by AV1), Tim Chapman (Encore) and Graeme Caplen (Entegy) then offered their practical tips for event planners wanting to know how to enhance their event through tech.
Later, attendees heard from young industry leader Georgie Chapman-Burgess, who shared her story of her uncoventional career path into events, before a panel on the topic of measuring an event’s success with Laura Sage (Event Planet) and Paula Nolan (Commonwealth Bank).
Social Media Marketing Institute’s Mireille Ryan discussed all things social media, before Tim Philips-Johansson (Sweet&Chilli) wrapped up the program with an interactive cocktail masterclass.
Events Uncovered culminated in the annual Networking Party, which saw guests network into the night at Verandah Bar while enjoying incredible entertainment by Musicland Sydney.
