Transformation Of Events Industry By Technology And Computer Applications In Technology is advancing, and evolving and revolutionizing every aspect of humans intheir wake. As observed by MacKenzie and Wajcman (1999), from birth to death, all our lives are intertwined with technology, which ranges from simple tools to large technical systems. Some of this technology is more visible, and directly used by people of the world e.g. computers, Internet, mobile devices, mobile data networks, etc while other is not directly visible but affects us nonetheless e.g. medicine, military,etc. This paper is an exploration of how technology has transformed events industry in therecent years. Events can range from international Olympics-level to small office gatherings. Now, as will all worthwhile endeavours, managing an event requires organizing people, delegating responsibilities, ensuring schedule and other tasks. In addition, the organizers would like to capitalize all possible opportunities for advertisement, as well as providing better experience to audience. Event management becomes more important for public events, where the success or failure of the event depends upon people buying the tickets, taking time out of their schedule to come andthen actually enjoy the event. Events were being managed earlier also, so what changes has technology brought in the recent years?As per India (2012), events are a public assembly for the purpose of celebration, education, marketing or reunion, while Phuah (2012) defines it in a general way as being a designed experience in order to achieve a given purpose or objectives.Events are launched with a purpose in mind, have a specific target audience, budget constraints, arrangements requirements, etc. Managing an event is about bringing together people and their skills, materials, and technology together to bring to fruition an event. Events are classified into many types like corporate, conferences, glamour, music concerts, sports, high profile weddings, political, trade shows (Changi, 2013) (O'Connor, 2011). All the people and companies that engage in managing events professionally come under the umbrella term of "events industry".Transformations Brought By Technology And Computer Applications <Your Name> <Your Student Number> 20163 of 10
