This is the third year for Society of Independent Show Organizers’ (SISO) Event Innovation Battlefield, and this year, the nominating committee has chosen four finalists from more than 50 organizations that applied.
“Each year, SISO is looking for breakthrough event technology or amazing new business models just before they are released publicly so that we may keep one step ahead in our ever changing industry,” said David Adler, one of the principal SISO members that developed the Event Innovation Battlefield for SISO’s Leadership Conference.
Adler added, “It’s exciting to see all of the innovation in our industry and opens our minds to what was not possible just a few short years ago. It truly is a celebration of talent and ideas.”
The finalists at this year’s Leadership Conference in Dallas, Texas are:
