Living in a world where engagement is everything and how we experience the world around us is important, the next lecture in the Event Design Lecture Series explores this theme in the context of events.

How technology aids in increasing attendee engagement will be presented by Tim Manning of Swarm Group. Software applications that increase attendee engagement are common at many events. But what kind of engagement is needed for a particular kind of event, a client’s objectives and reinforcement of marketing messages or behaviour change? Tim will explore various options that an event designer can consider to create better experiences. The session takes place at 5pm on Monday 5 November at the University of Westminster’s Marylebone campus opposite Madame Tussauds.

Tim Manning is an accomplished multi-skilled business leader working in consultancy, experiential, live events and retail. He has grown several businesses of various sizes by driving business development through product innovation and omni-channel communication strategies and networks. Tim has experience of working with many household brands and has won live event pitches and worked with brands such as Ford, Nike, adidas, Footlocker, Ocado and Unilever.
