The best blogs for event professionals to read
Blogs are a great way to keep up with the latest news, information, tips and trends. But which are the best blogs for events professionals to read?
To save you trawling through the many events blogs and websites around, here’s a round up of our favourite eight (in no particular order!) – all of which we recommend keeping an eye on.
The Eventbrite blog is a brilliant source of information, whether you want to learn event planning basics or keep up-to-date with the latest developments in event technology.
If you haven’t looked at the Eventbrite blog before, it’s well worth having a delve into the archives as it’s a treasure trove of ideas, how-to guides and other useful resources.
Event Industry News
Events profs everywhere read Event Industry News magazine, and their guest blogs are also well-worth a read.
Recent topics include sustainable event design, the 10 best events to invite your clients to in 2023, and choosing keynote speakers.
This website has a UK focus and also features venue spotlights and comprehensive event industry news.
Isla works with event organisers and suppliers, providing practical guidance and support on environmental issues.
Their website has an extremely useful blog which is regularly updated with all the latest planet-saving related news and information.
Recent topics covered include sustainable event case studies, the twin challenges of the climate and cost-of-living crisis and plant-based catering trends.
We think that in 2023 everyone in the events industry should demonstrate that they’re taking meaningful action to be eco-friendly, so this blog is a must-read.
The Conference and Incentive Travel World website is an excellent source of in-depth industry knowledge through a varied mix of news stories, venue profiles, industry reports, webinars and podcasts.
Content typically covers:
- Event management and venue sourcing
- Attendee engagement
- Event marketing
- Event tech
- Incentive travel and destinations
The Meetings Industry Association (of which Kina Events is a member!) is the leading association for business meetings and events – and we find the news section of their website an invaluable source of industry news.
Updates include latest venue and supplier information, member news, plus industry surveys and trends.
How could we collate a list of the best event blogs and not include our own?
