TheModernEvent.com, an online publication launched this week on January,18th 2016 with a focus on industry insights, supplier connections, modern planning and emerging technologies within the meetings and events industry. The digital network will cover a broad range of topics including event technology, modern planning, marketing and event culture.
“We’ll be delving deeper into cutting edge insights and topics- we have the new opportunity to bring industry professionals something different, that they may have never heard of, events and technology is changing so fast and converging onto each other… covering and writing about it never runs out, professionals need to be informed” explains, AJ Jardien, Publisher of The Modern Event Magazine and co-host of TME Radio Podcast.
Walt Mossberg, former technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, now co-founder and editor-at-large, for the popular technology news site Re/code, echoes Jardien’s statements on the importance of writing and covering emerging technology.
Mossberg elaborated, “I’ve been on the Web from the beginning of the Web. The good part about writing about technology is that you never run out of ideas, because it’s changing so fast.”
“One of the main things that I see holding event professionals & meeting professionals from moving to the next level, is a lack of up to the minute resources and execution on how to utilize new technologies to engage their audience” states LJ Porter, co-founder of The Modern Event Magazine and co-host of the TME Podcast Show.
As part of the new network publication, The TME (The Modern Event) Podcast show will feature expert advice, thought leaders, innovators, and acumen on up and coming guests. Guests such as Event Planning Superhero, Liz King, International Technology Speaker Corbin Ball, and Emmy-winning columnist, TED/TEDx Presenter Kare Anderson, Speaker and MGM’s Michael Dominguez are just a few of the many accomplished experts that will be sharing their knowledge with listeners when the podcast launches this February.
