techsytalk Global


from Nov. 17th & 18th, 2020
A Virtual Experience For Event Planners, By Event Planners


The techsytalk brand was created to curate the conversation around the discovery and implementation of avant-garde event “tech” solutions and ideas for event planners who are OBSESSED with delivering the most rewarding event experience.

COVID-19 has hammered the events industry, but it has also expedited innovation and  new ways to approach new challenges. Virtual and hybrid events now at the forefront, and having 10+ years of experience in both, long before the pandemic, we’re psyched to re-launch our signature “techsytalk LIVE” event, now techsytalk GLOBAL, specifically to help our peers navigate this evolving landscape of gatherings. 

techsytalk GLOBAL will be virtual, although we will be showcasing some hybrid components to whet your palates for what’s possible. Virtual also means that we can now entertain a global audience of event planning talent for you to network with, learn and draw inspiration from.  True to the techsytalk brand DNA, you can expect an experience that will test boundaries, expand your awareness of what’s possible and introduce you to fresh ideas, tech solutions & future collaborators.  



Tuesday Nov. 17th & Wednesday Nov. 18th 2020

MAIN STAGE CONTENT: LIVE from 10am – 1pm
Well produced LIVE content designed for audience engagement with seamless production. The focus here is how to foster strong guest experience that feels authentic to the in-person assembly. 

ON DEMAND CONTENT: Available for 48hrs
Virtual events afford us the luxury of ease of schedule via ON DEMAND content. Attendees can choose their own adventure so they can consume WHAT they want, WHEN they want from the ON Demand offerings.  

No long-winded, marathon sessions on our watch. Each session will be structured for easy viewing in digestible amounts. Some sessions will be designed to be interactive so the audience can actively participate in the production. Longer sessions will be designed to go DEEP on a topic and you’ll walk away with a TON of information, but these are reserved for the sessions that really require a deep-dive.

techsytalk core belief has always been: NEVER BORE.  We don’t think learning and having fun need to be mutually exclusive, so expect no less at our techsytalk GLOBAL virtual experience.
