Corbin Ball & Co. Marks Its 20th Anniversary

In April of 1997, I left my career as Head of Conference Operations for a high-tech association (SPIE) and set out to form my own speaking, consulting and writing firm focusing exclusively on technology for events, exhibitions and meeting venues. I was the first person to do this full-time -- the 'OG' of event tech! Today, I am happy to say there are many dozens of "techno-evangelists" to help guide our industry in this continuingly rapidly changing field. It has been, and continues to be, a very fun ride. I wish to express my hearty thanks to my clients, to those who have attendended my sessions over the years, and to the loyal readers of my TechTalk Newsletter (started in Sept. 1998)! Your support is much appreciated!
