BizBash and Eventbrite Announce New 2013 Partnership to Find and Share 'Glass-Shattering' Disruptive Practices for Planning Events and Conferences

New York, NY—January 25, 2013—BizBash, the trade media serving the creative needs of event, conference, and meeting planners, and Eventbrite, the leading online event registration and ticketing company, announced a partnership today to find and share “glass breaking” disruptive best practices for the event industry that are both forward-thinking and thought-provoking.

Eventbrite will work with BizBash to facilitate the hunt for and sharing of these disruptive glass-shattering conversations via a yearlong program of proactive research, webinars, and real-time face-to-face learning lounges at the 2013 BizBash IdeaFest trade shows in South Florida, Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago. As part of the ongoing research, both Eventbrite and BizBash will explore everything from new engagement techniques that encourage registration to the long tail of an event that will emotionally tie attendees.
