Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany is celebrating, because its campus-wide video deployment reached an impressive milestone – the 1 million views mark.

Recently, hundreds of event professionals – myself included – gathered in New York City for BizBash Live New York 2017. BizBash Live is a one-day conference where the events world can come together to collaborate, attend education sessions and learn about the latest innovations in event management. It was truly an overload of all the senses!
There was a mentalist, nail art, live music and people dressed like a snow globe and a zoltar (remember those fortune telling machines?). He told me that video in events will explode in 2018, by the way! I could even get a cookie with my selfie on it!
