Introduction

Hey, I am Julius

I love technology, events, coffee and blogging. 

I talk and write about event technology trends.

I am the editor of +Event Manager Blog. Started in 2007, Event Manager Blog is the number one blog worldwide for event professionals, covering topics such as event planning + social media and events + event technology + event trends + event inspiration but also destination management marketing + meeting planning.

I have been named one of the most influential individual in the Meetings Industry by Successful Meetings Magazine.

My mission is give event professionals advice, reports and tools to face one of the most stressing jobs on earth.

I am the author of The Event App Bible , The Good Event Registration Guide and Social Media for Events three books with unprecedented research about event mobile apps, event registration and ticketing providers and social media. More than 75,000 readers have downloaded my books since launch.

In 2008 I started the Event Planning and Management LinkedIn Group. A few years later, with more than 270,000 members a team of 12 moderators, it became the de-facto largest gathering of event professionals online.

I also enjoy creating engaging presentations. My annual presentation "10 Event Trends" has been a Slideshare popular presentation of the month for 4 years in a row and recently the 2014 version surpassed 100k views on Slideshare. Here is my Slideshare Channel.

I am a speaker for the event industry. Events I spoke at include Meeting Innovation Summit,  HSMAI Annual Meeting Norway, Event Tech Love 2014, Event Solutions 2014, Confex 2014, EIBTM 2013, Event Technology Conference, IMEX Las Vegas, Dubai ISES talks, Tech Fest 2013, Cvent’s Corporate Meeting Summit 2013, Event Tech Circus Amsterdam, event 13, SMAU 2013, MPI Belgium Conference, EIBTM Barcelona, IMEX Frankfurt, Social Media Week Milan 2012, SMAU 2012 and he's been returning guest lecturer for Dublin City University’s Business School, Westminster University London, Inholland University Amsterdam.

Before becoming a 100% dedicated blogger and speaker, I have been working as Social Media Consultant for FTSE250 companies in the UK. My last campaign with RS Components won Econsultancy's The Digitals for Best Multichannel Marketing Campaign.

Bragging rights
I've been nominated as one of the 40 future leaders of the meetings industry under 40 years of age by Collaborate Meetings Magazine.
