techsytalk Global anticipates an international audience of more than 2,000 attendees from the corporate, association and independent event planning industries. In his presentation, Duffy will highlight how AR is making the difference in the way event managers can immerse attendees in virtual environments and share creative ideas to increase engagement, sponsor ROI and fun during virtual events using AR.

The techsytalk brand was founded by event planners with over a decade of experience planning meetings, conferences, and corporate events in both live and virtual settings. techsytalk's live event offers event planners a setting in which they can discuss the discovery and implementation of novel event solutions and ideas. As the industry and event professionals face a rapidly changing event landscape amid the COVID-19 pandemic, techsytalk made the decision to re-launch the signature event as a global, virtual experience in 2020.

"I spend every day planning events for clients and working with various teams to better understand the challenges that event planners have with technology. When we decided to reimagine techsytalk Global as a virtual event it was because we really saw the power in the various platforms that were available to planners, many of which they just aren't aware of," said Liz King Caruso, CEO of techsytalk & Liz King Events. "NexTech is an example of a really powerful company doing interesting and innovative things for the event industry. We love the possibilities for AR and VR in our digital-first world and believe Paul's presentation during techsytalk Global will enable attendees to embrace these technologies and their implications for our events."

"I'm thrilled to be highlighting the power of AR for virtual events during techsytalk Global 2020. This event has an impressive history within the event management industry and has the unique advantage of being crafted by event professionals for event professionals." said Paul Duffy, President of NexTech AR, "Attendees understand the challenges that come with transforming events, conferences and meetings into virtual experiences. At NexTech, we firmly believe that virtual events are here to stay, and AR-driven applications should be considered by any event managers looking to boost attendance, engagement and take their experience to the next level."
