Everybody gather around for some brewing about attendee gifts! So, let's be real. If you were to count the number of chachkies you've received over the years as an attendee, how many would that be? And if you confronted that number with the number of gifts you've actually kept, how big of a difference would it be? Well, we're guessing quite a bit. Because truth is, it gets to a saturation point for attendees when they're drowning in pens, notebooks, and other chachkies.
But surely there must be an upside to this? Attendee gifts aren't all that bad, and have benefits of their own, right? Well, this is exactly what we're about to discuss. On this week's Event Brew, our amazing hosts sit down and talk about the crazy world of chachkies and free swag. Will Curran, Nick Borelli, and Thuy Diep are about to share all of their thoughts on the matter. So, are you ready for this? Then grab your favorite drink, and let's get brewing!

Event trend reports are starting to come along now that a new year is set to begin. And to some people in the events industry, that’s the equivalent of the most wonderful time of the year. Some are either writing them or anxiously waiting to read them. But just like any other topic, event trend reports can spark some controversy amongst event professionals. Love them, hate them, or disregard them, the reports exist and show no signs of slowing down or simply dying.
So on this week’s episode of Event Brew, we’re tackling this somewhat controversial topic. Is it time for event trend reports to go? or are they actually a pretty helpful tool for our industry? As usual, we have the pleasure of counting on four different perspectives on the matter. Our lovely hosts Nick Borelli, Thuy Diep, Dustin Westling, and Will Curran all share their feelings and opinions. So, without further ado, pick up your favorite winter drink and let’s get brewing!
