    The Importance of Human Connection with Matt Culverhouse, TEN6 Creative

    The Importance of Human Connection with Matt Culverhouse, TEN6 Creative

    This week’s guest CEO of TEN6 Creative, Matt Culverhouse. In a more relaxed format than normal, Matt and I chew the fat about the importance of human connection at events. The two elements that Matt identifies as a “worry” are the exhibition environment and networking as they are difficult to replicate online. Matt’s background working for some of Europe’s largest venues coupled with his creative arts education gives him a unique understanding of live event management - from both the agency and hospitality perspectives. Matt oversees live events of all sizes and levels of complexity, including managing production, creative and logistics for shows as large as 85,000 attendees. An expert in project management and negotiating contracts, Matt has worked all over the world, always delivering a commitment to personal service to surpass the expectations of clients and attendees.  To keep up to date with all the news, subscribe for free here. If you would like to take part in a podcast, then please complete our submission form.

    This episode is sponsored by Grip, a leading AI-powered event matchmaking solution for virtual and hybrid events. Montgomery Events, a subset of the Montgomery Group, focus mainly on food, drink and hospitality events as well as several different niche events in the UK and Netherlands. My guest this week is managing director, Lori Hoinkes, who started with the company three 3 years ago with an early project being to harmonise data by streamlining suppliers using a good CRM system, and subsequently, building two tech systems for internal use: Bento: This system was built to help the company better categorise exhibitors, sponsors and visitors. They recently used this to create six key-personas of visitors to identify which type would be more valuable to exhibitors. This process resulted in a 33% increase in attendance. Sherlock: This system was built to facilitate a ‘health check’ of an event analysing, social listening, survey data and lead generation. The analysis and targeted process has made the team more productive and has increased revenues. The data aids the decision as to which new events to launch, an area of the company’s growth strategy. To keep up to date with all the news, subscribe for free here. If you would like to take part in a podcast, then please complete our submission form.
