5 Podcasts Conference Organizers Should be Listening To

By Susan Finch, April 5, 2019

If you’re looking for inspiration from fellow meeting professionals to amplify your next event, or just need some edu-entertainment for your day, there are plenty of industry podcasts to fill your knowledge base. Here are five podcasts for meeting and event planners to get started.

GatherGeeks from BizBash

GatherGeeks interviews industry professionals at the top of their field, but takes their in-depth conversations a step further. Listeners can gather actionable information from the experts that they can implement to propel their own events forward. “Industry podcasts, like GatherGeeks from BizBash, are the secret way to listen in on unrehearsed conversations with the best pros in the business,” says David Adler, C.E.O. and Founder, BizBash. “You’re able to take the insider tips, ideas and inspiration that you hear and implement immediately. It’s like getting the best event consultants in the world for free.”

Meeting Minds

A 16-year veteran in the events industry, Charles Eide, hosts the weekly Meeting Minds podcast featuring industry leaders who dive deep into their area of expertise. “It’s like adding sprinkles and chocolate sauce to your event knowledge,” says Eide, who focuses on creating a podcast that’s as equal parts entertaining and informative. The hope is to add to listeners’ knowledge base and expand their knowledge. Eide is the CEO of the international Creative Agency, EideCom, and CEO and creator of the fastest growing wedding media company called Forever Bride who shares knowledge of entrepreneurship, as well as the events and meeting industry.

Event Industry Podcast

With an engaged 40,000 listeners and counting, the growing Event Industry Podcast looks to bring its audience expert knowledge and advice for planning successful events. Co-founder and editor Adam Parry says, “We produce the Event Industry News podcast to allow our listeners to go deeper and learn more about different topics, in the fast-paced world of events time is everything and long-form written content can be challenging to get through.” Parry also credits the podcast’s format as a way to easily digest the knowledge during “dead time” like a morning commute, jog, on an errand, or even while travelling between events and meetings.
