Event Marketing Industry Tips

It is glaringly obvious to state that the world we live in today is very much an ever changing digital world.

And as we rapidly power through innovative game changing technologies, not everyone is taking advantage of these wonderful, time saving, cost saving, and often entertaining tools. The conference organised by SoolNua and hosted by Padraig Gilligan and Patrick Delaney focused on the three important concepts of growth and effectiveness in an ever growing, ever changing economy of the digital age: event marketing technology, strategy, and execution. With some added yoga positions for health and balance!

Business Travel Essentials Brunton

Business Travel Essentials

Battery power is at the top of the priority list when it comes to business travel essentials, but multiple cables and battery chargers can quickly fill up your hand luggage and a power outlet is not always available when on the move. The Birksun charging backpack solves this problem in a nutshell. All your devices can be charged in your bag as you travel, and the bag itself continues to charge via solar panels on the top of the bag. For the less sunny days, you can charge your backpack before your trip using the wall plug. Genius!
