Event Technology Startup Programme | Event Tech Live
Event Technology Startup Programme

Event Tech Live’s well-established start-up programme will be back at the show in November with a bigger footprint and a remodelled competition.


The show's Event Technology Startup Programme is a cost-effective liaison between nascent next-generation event tech suppliers and industry buyers/investors.


Recognised for its impact, the Event Technology Startup Programme benefits from significant subsidy and sponsorship and its own stage sessions featuring live tech demos from its exhibitors.


The Event Technology Startup Programme competition requires entrants to submit a one-minute explainer video detailing their ‘new tech’ product.

Following a public vote, the three most impressive will be announced on Day 1 of Event Tech Live and invited to deliver a short presentation on Day 2 in front of a live audience. An expert panel of judges will rank the companies Gold, Silver and Bronze, with a significant prize for each category.


Open to the startup programme exhibitors and qualifying start-ups from around the show, the competition guarantees great exposure among event professionals, including 57,000 readers of www.eventindustrynews.com (EIN) and over 80,000 social media connections.


Entrants also receive a marketing pack to help optimise their award campaign.
