Our podcast is back with a new name and look. We’re inviting the industry’s top Event Experience Leaders to share their stories and inspire the future of events.
The Event Experience podcast brings together the best and brightest Event Experience Leaders for conversations about event marketing, event management, audience engagement, event success measurement, and more.
The first two episodes of the new season are available today. You can also listen to all 50 previous episodes, which feature interviews with leaders from Spotify, Salesforce, Pinterest, and other high-profile companies.
“At their core, events are about community building,” said Alon Alroy, co-founder and CMO of Bizzabo. “Our podcast nurtures our community by spotlighting event professionals and giving them a space to tell their stories in their own words, event professional to event professional.”
The podcast’s new season also feature a new host: Erik Fisher. Erik is Bizzabo’s senior social media manager and has built his career on finding new ways to build connections and improve productivity through digital channels. In addition to hosting Event Experience, he is the producer and host of the long-running podcast, Beyond the To-Do List.
Upcoming episodes will feature actionable conversations on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, event engagement, and topics relevant to event professionals and marketers alike.
Additionally, past podcast guests will return to offer fresh takes on their event strategies and approach to the events industry. One of our returning guests is Nicola Kastner, who was first interviewed in 2019 when she was the VP, Global Head of Event Strategy at SAP. Since then, Kastner has founded The Event Strategist, a boutique consultancy firm. In this new episode, Kastner discusses how she used data to overhaul a 24,000-person event, how she pivoted during the pandemic, and where she thinks the event industry needs to focus in the future.
“Fundamentally, the world has changed. What we did before the pandemic should not be brought back in the same way,” Kastner said. “As an industry, we must question how, why, and what we’re hoping to achieve from events — and design to address those needs.”
Event Experience episodes are available at www.bizzabo.com/podcasts and wherever you listen to podcasts.
