An Event App Chat with BigEventApp

BigEventApp-Featured

In today’s episode of the PlannerWire Sporadic Podcast, PlannerWire (Keith) is chatting with BigEventApp.com (Mike and Carl).

Mike and Carl will tell you that their mission is to create buzz-worthy apps, that are clear, highly intuitive and include schedules, speakers, restaurant guides, social integration, and more and I do think that they succeed with a great product…I would also throw in that they are nice guys who know their stuff.

During our conversation, we touch on everything from their product and the current state of event apps to the future and what it holds for conferences going mobile.

Meeting Planner Music Club – GHXST

Meeting Planner Halloween

Happy Halloween. Tonight is the time for meeting planners and eventprofs everywhere to do some trick or treating, have some good scares, and make dentist appointments.

But look out… You are about to see a GHXST….

GHXST (pronounced GHOST) is a dark artrock trio from New York City formed in 2010 by Christopher James and Shelley X after disbanding their previous Gothic noise band. Drummer Nathan Gray left school in San Diego a few months later to join the new lineup, adding powerful live percussion to the band’s stylish and chaotic sound.

This band reminds me of groups that I used to jam in the late eighties, early nineties. Groups like Ministry, Shriekback, and My Life with Trill Kill Kult…. I think that most of my meeting planner friends will find this tune surprisingly excellent…. Anyway, it is really good for Halloween.
