If you’re looking for some creative event decoration ideas, DIY tutorials are a great place to start (even if, like me, you only dream of being this crafty!)
When we heard that this year’s Maha Kumbh Mela was predicted to attract over 80 million people, making it the world’s biggest gathering of people ever, we were intrigued to say the least.

Live video streaming can help you to increase the reach of your event to those who can’t attend. It may also help you to reach customers who hadn’t planned on attending anyway, and convince them to come to your next event or conference. With live streaming, your event takes place simultaneously on the internet, effectively bringing people from all around the world to your gathering.
