Best event blogs: Top picks from Webex Events staff

1. BizBash

Claiming “North America’s No. 1 source of ideas, news, and resources for event and meeting professionals,” the BizBash blog doesn’t disappoint. We love the way they segment their content so it’s easy to browse different verticals like “Production & Strategy,” “Food Trends,” and “Gifts & Swag.” 

Check out BizBash’s on-demand events like the Event Masters webinar series and the popular GatherGeeks podcast. Or spend hours browsing their expansive library of fun posts like “5 Drink Station Ideas for Summer Events” or “13 High-End Corporate Gifts Even the Grinch Would Love” to inspire your next event.

2. Event Marketer

If you’re looking for real-life examples to level up your next event with the latest event technology, we suggest the Event Marketer blog. They showcase a bunch of recent case studies from leading brands like Coke, HBO, and South by Southwest. We like how easy it is to filter the case studies by B2C and B2B events, so you can quickly find inspiration, no matter your event type or audience.

3. EventMB

EventMB has long been the go-to authority for all things related to event planning and design, event technology, and news. 

Always two steps ahead of the next trend, EventMB keeps the industry on its toes with premier content like downloadable guides and eBooks, industry stats and reports, event tech reviews, and the amazing EventMB webinars.

We think EventMB hit a homerun when they brought in events industry veteran and all-around awesome person, Miguel Neves, to take the reins.

4. Meeting Professionals International (MPI)

As the largest industry association serving the global meeting and event industry, Meeting Professionals International (MPI) “strives to lead the world in education, networking, and innovative solutions that advance not only the meeting and event industry, but the careers of the professionals in it.”

The MPI blog is a go-to destination for the latest event trends and industry news. We especially like how they dedicate a section to spotlighting various “Destinations” for event planning. While there, check out the EVENTalks podcast and browse the latest edition of The Meeting Professional digital magazine.

5. Event Industry News

Based in the UK, Event Industry News features a massive library of event content covering branding and agencies, event technology, conference venues, and recruiting. 

Event Industry News also promotes a wide range of guest blogs from thought leaders and professionals across the industry.

We like how they carve out considerable attention for music festivals and concerts, something you don’t see too frequently in other event blogs. 

6. Event Leadership Institute

ELI’s “Event Leaders Blog” packs an abundance of articles, or “Smarticles” as they call them, covering topics like event design, event management, technical production, and sales. 

ELI focuses heavily on education and training, personal development, and leadership training. We recommend the “Member Spotlight” series to learn about the career development of leading industry professionals.

7. Meeting Tomorrow

As event producers who focus on the A/V and the event design side of organizing, the Meeting Tomorrow blog is a go-to resource for advice on choosing the right event technology and the production side of pulling off hybrid and virtual events. The Meeting Tomorrow blog dives deeper than most on topics like A/V equipment rental and hybrid event production.

8. Because Creative Experiences

As a global marketing agency focused on creative experiences and brand activation, the Because Creative Experiences blog showcases some top-notch, GIF-heavy content to inspire your next event. This blog is perfect for organizers looking to help brands connect with their audiences in new and exciting ways, launch a viral event marketing campaign, and stay abreast of emerging event tech trends.

9. Slido

We’re big Slido fans here at Webex Events! We’re passionate about audience engagement, and we even offer a Slido integration in our end-to-end platform to power polling, Q&A, and quizzes. 

Slido’s blog cuts right to the chase and promotes mostly how-to articles to help organizers level up audience engagement and inject a dose of fun into their next meeting or event.

10. Skift

Skift bills itself as the “most-trusted source of breaking travel news, in-depth reporting, and travel research covering airlines, hotels, tourism, cruises, startups, business travel, and technology.” With in-person events quickly coming back into play, we know organizers will be watching this space for ideas, guidance, and inspiration.

Skift showcases timely articles on tourism and travel as well as in-depth industry reports, such as the “Skift Research Global Travel Outlook for 2022,” “Venture Investment Trends in Travel 2022,” and “Travel Marketing During COVID-19.”

11. PCMA Convene Magazine

Since 1986, the Professional Convention Management Association’s Convene magazine (now digital) focuses on providing education and professional development for event organizers and meeting planners. 

We love the “Career & Leadership” content that offers up tips and life hacks from industry veterans, and the “People on the Move” lists that highlight promotions, job changes, and other milestones from your colleagues in the industry.

12. Webex Events (formerly Socio)

We launched the Webex Events blog (formerly known as Socio) a couple of years ago with the goal of becoming a key resource and trusted partner for the event community.

As one of the early promoters of virtual events during COVID, our blog became a key resource to help event organizers pivot their events to a virtual format. 

Today, we update the Webex Events blog several times a week with fresh content covering everything from event theme ideas to event production and the latest event technology trends. 

Check out some of our recent articles for inspiration:
