With democracy subject to all sorts of interpretations, the Event Technology Awards (ETA) People’s Choice poll is refreshingly simple. Launched today, it calls on individuals to vote for their favourite tech supplier – is it you? 

Recognising ingenuity and impact in equal measure, the People’s Choice commendation rewards the three most popular votes with Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Winners will be announced at the ETA ceremony in November. 

US-based app specialist Whova took Gold last year, Shocklogic the Silver and three-time winner Bizzabo the Bronze, each sourcing support through its industry, connectivity and social media channels. 

Event Technology Awards’ co-founder, Adam Parry, commented: “People’s Choice is a great element in the awards programme. However big your reach as a company, virtually or otherwise, you have to be behind something pretty special and contemporary to whip up enough support for a place on the podium, and that process brings the best out of several tiers of technology. 


“Whova was a very worthy winner last year and we’re all looking out for what happens in 2019.” 


The Event Technology Awards returns to Troxy, Commercial Road, East London on Wednesday 6th November, the first evening of Event Tech Live, which is set 10 minutes away at The Old Truman Brewery.
