Want to know what it's like to work with an influencer on your event—from the influencer himself? Find that and more from the speakers at BizBash Live: Los Angeles, scheduled for July 18 at the California Market Center.

Speakers will also share insight on using events to build community, creating better nonprofit events, and integrating event technology in smart and fun ways—all timely topics important to a variety of event professionals.

The educational portion of the annual expo consists of the Event Innovation Forum and a workshop series with speakers discussing the latest ideas, inspiration, and strategies for executing top-level events. New this year is the Masterclass, an in-depth look at a subject limited to a select group of attendees. The event will offer two Masterclasses: one on social media and the other on design thinking.

This year’s speakers have worked on major events—from South by Southwest and Code Conference to the Los Angeles Times' Food Bowl and celebrity weddings.

In addition, attendees can earn credit toward CSEP re-certification through a partnership with ILEA, and credit toward CPCE certification through a partnership with NACE.
