Going to a conference only to leave with a headache from loud speakers can be counterproductive. In a large conference, it can be almost impossible to find a place in the auditorium that doesn’t either leave you with ringing ears or straining to hear from being too far away.

Enter Silent Events, a company that can accommodate events large or small. The company provides attendees headphones with personal volume controls and three separate channels. If you’re at a trade show and only interested in one product, you can easily tune in and focus on that specific product. “You can have all three programs talking simultaneously, you don’t have to waste your day and wait for the next session at a later time,” says Ryan Dowd, creator and owner of Silent Events.

Silent Events is not just a headphone company, it’s a full-production company that can run your event or simply deliver headphones.

When events went virtual, sharing a meal with coworkers and fellow industry professionals at in-person meetings and events became a realized luxury. The opportunity to connect with others over food disappeared for a while, but catering companies like Tastings in New York and Miami worked to keep it around by launching its new service, Tastings 2.0, in April.

 

When attending a conference became synonymous with staying at home, companies had to determine a new way to leave an impression on attendees. As the choice of venue, decor, and many other physical elements of in-person events were no longer contenders, co-owners Susan Turnock and Heather Arak-Kanofsky of Gifts for the Good Life knew that they could supply the part that still makes an impact.

 

Planners have enough to juggle when it comes to organizing meetings and events: from researching and booking venues to creating an attendee list and more. Then, the pandemic came and created another set of obstacles to clear. Now, planners have to stay on top of health and safety regulations and ever-changing governors’ orders in addition to everything else.
