Jackson kicked off proceedings with a discussion on the impact of data-driven events, using how George P Johnson delivered Cisco Live as an example of how content can enhance the attendee experience.

Uber’s Simon Reynolds followed, detailing the meteoric rise of the ride-sharing service and how global and local marketing campaigns has launched the brand all over the world.

Shed Simove, who spoke at C&IT’s Agency Forum event at Wembley Stadium in August, concluded the Morning Premiere with a presentation on how breaking the rules and taking inspiration from outside industries can lead to success in the events industry.
