Access editor Tom Hall recently moderated a panel discussion hosted by EventLAB and venue-finding service Hire Space.

The theme of the talk, which took place in LABS Camden House in Camden Lock Market, was ‘cost-effective ways to personalise the live event and surprise your audience’.

It utilised a social media wall to get the audience engaged with questions and answers throughout the sessions, rather than just at the beginning. The talk was also live streamed on Facebook, fielding questions from users tuning in online.

Some of the topics which were covered included the role of tech in personalising events, how experiential and creative design elements can be used without big budgets, and how to break down traditional even formats.
