#EventprofReads: Week 39

Here’s the latest #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

How Blockchain is disrupting the trust business, from The Economist:

“…If distributed ledgers indeed disrupt the trust business, then a lot of administrative jobs will be lost, perhaps even more than through artificial intelligence.”

That a new £200m arena, conference & expo centre is to be built in Newcastle Gateshead, in M&IT:

“…The new development will consist of a 12,500 seat arena with 10,300 sqm of conference and exhibition facilities at Gateshead Quays, relocating the existing Metro Radio Arena”

Why Freeman has invested in Feathr to enhance the brand experience, in Event Industry News:

“…Feathr’s proprietary technology allows organizers and marketers to leverage their data by combining sources like registration, CRM, social followers and website analytics to launch effective multi-channel campaigns.”

Why Alphabet is using robots to release 20m sterilised mosquitos in Fresno, California, according to MIT Technology Review:

“When the treated males mate with females in the wild, the females’ eggs aren’t able to develop properly and don’t hatch. The idea is that the sterile males will help deplete the local mosquito population.”

And finally… What your business needs to do to get ready for GDPR, from Boyes Turner:

“…The starting point for any use of personal data should be consideration of the interests of customers, delivering good outcomes to them with due respect for their privacy.”
