East London’s Troxy hosted the 6th Event Technology Awards, welcoming event professionals from around the globe to an exciting evening of food and celebration.
A new addition to the 2018 ceremony was the Outstanding Contribution to Event Technology award, which was presented to Cvent founder Reggie Aggarwal.
Highlights of the evening included word of mouth sales platform Verve taking home the gong for Best Festival Technology for the fourth year in a row. Exposure Analytics – a company specialising in real-time movement data – scooped two awards for Best Use of Wireless Technology and Best use of Technology for Event Analytics & Data-Collection respectively.
The much-coveted People’s Choice Award for Best Technology Supplier – which is voted for by readers of Event Industry News – was taken by Whova, who also scooped Best Technology for Audience Participation.
The brand new Outstanding Achievement award was chosen by the Event Technology Awards co-founder Adam Parry. During his opening speech, Adam explained why he had selected the Cvent founder.
“I thought long and hard about the possible names, and spent time considering their achievements”, said Adam. “Reggie has built a global reputation for himself, but more importantly for his company, taking Cvent from a startup and expanding it to become one of the world’s largest event technology suppliers.”
