In Part 1 of our 2-part Women in Event Tech series, we looked to the past and the evolution of events, event tech, their convergence, and how women-led initiatives and innovations have moved the industry forward. We also looked at how EventBuilder has been a player in the virtual events space since the beginning. Join us for Part 2 as we stop to take a look around at the now, then we'll look to the future and how the women who lead EventBuilder are shaping its direction.
