Corbin to Chair IBTM's Technology and Innovation Watch Award for the 16th Year.

This award is the longest running and one of the event industry's most significant award recognizing technology innovation - the "Academy Awards" of events technology. I am very pleased to I have been asked again to chair the judging committee. This award is a great opportunity for technology companies to show their new stuff and get a free booth at IBTM in Barcelona as well.
More information will be forthcoming at the IBTM Tech Watch page  and through my website and newsletter.
The award will be given November 22, 2019 in Barcelona.  

Corbin Ball & Co. Marks Its 22nd Anniversary

In April of 1997, I left my career as Head of Conference Operations for a high-tech association (SPIE) to form my own speaking, consulting and writing firm focusing exclusively on technology for events, exhibitions and meeting venues. I was the first person to do this full-time -- the 'OG' of event tech! Today, I am happy to say there are many dozens of "techno-evangelists" to help guide our industry in this continuingly rapidly changing field. It has been, and continues to be, a very fun ride. I wish to express my hearty thanks to my clients, to those who have attendended my sessions over the years, and to the loyal readers of my TechTalk Newsletter (started in Sept. 1998)! Your support is much appreciated!

     Personal note: I feel tremendously honored and thrilled to be selected to receive this award.
