Ep #7 Using AI to Personalize Events with Stephan Forseilles of EasyFairs

In the first half of this show our host, Megan Powers, from Powers of Marketing, discussed meeting and event industry news with Swapcard Senior Data Scientist, Vincent Kurta. With Stephan Forseilles, we discuss the many aspects of AI and how technology is being used to personalize events - which puts a focus on the customer but also helps the organizations that use it for their events. We are at a sort of turning point with apps and there is a difference between B2B and B2C shows…
