Stories from The Green Room
Dear reader,

We’re one month away from ringing in 2022 and I, for one, am very excited. We’ve got a lot of really interesting things in the works at both The Green Room and at Zoho Backstage, and I can’t wait to share them with you in the upcoming weeks. Also, talking about the New Year, if one of your goals is networking and building connections, here’s a list by Eventex of 100 influential event industry folks and their LinkedIn profiles. It’s definitely worth checking out.

 

One of the biggest advocates for the live events industry has been #WeMakeEvents, and they’ve done quite a lot to help the industry recover. We spoke about some of this in our 2020 Event Industry Report (I can’t believe it’s already been a year!). This time, they’re conducting a survey to understand “the current position and future recovery of the live events, entertainment, and installation industries.” The survey will be open until Friday, December 3, and your responses would definitely help. You can follow this link to participate in the survey.

 

We also came across an interesting event, The Diversity in Events Awards, that’s all about recognizing accessibility and DEI initiatives in the event industry. If you know someone or are someone who’s prioritized them at your events, then it’s something you’d find interesting.

 

Lastly, here’s our question to you this month: “What’s your favorite thing about being an event planner?” Let us know by replying to this email or tweeting to us on Twitter. We’d love to know why you chose events as your dream job and what keeps you going. :) 
FEATURED STORY
INSIDE LOOK: HOW ZOHO RUNS ITS EVENTS ON ZOHO BACKSTAGE
In the last year, a lot of things have happened. Zoho Backstage evolved from being just event management software to an all-in-one solution that powers all types of events, end-to-end. The Zoho Events team pivoted to virtual events and then went hybrid this year. Through all of these changes and more, we also found a way to work together to stay with the times and get work done.
This is an inside look at how three of the most notable events at Zoho were organized and conducted with Zoho Backstage.
