Are you twitching about decisions to make regarding your event technology? If you’re like many event professionals, the last 18 months have been challenging in trying to keep up, especially with new technologies being introduced daily. Event technology strategies, decisions (go live, go virtual, or both), and platforms have sucked all the air out of the room and it’s hard to breathe.

The team at DAHLIA+Agency is here not only to listen to you but also to help with practical solutions. Stop by and put your feet up at the Tech Therapy Lounge.

How we’ll help you?

We’ll address your digital health disorders, technology relationship issues, and what’s holding you back from producing the events of your dreams. And, if it helps, we’ll show you some really cool technologies. We know the pain is real. We are here to stop the pain.
