Top 10 Event Planner Podcasts
Event planner podcasts have proliferated in the past several years, with at least one for every niche of the meeting and event planner industry you can think of. Here are 5 event planner podcasts we think should be on everyone’s must-play list.

Event planner podcasts, similar to on-demand talk radio shows, are an increasingly popular way to spend the commute now that more people are heading back to their offices — though you’ll also find event planners tuning in during dog walks, lunch breaks and pretty much any other time they want to squeeze in some quick, easy-to-access event planning tips and best practices.

#EventIcons, hosted by Endless Events Founder Will Curran, is a weekly audio and video chat with event industry influencers such as the creators of New York Comic Con, the team behind the Firefly Music Festival, and the planners of C2 Montreal and South by Southwest. Curran leads the discussion, but the audience can chime in with questions as well. Recent topics include which metrics to use to measure attendee engagement, the ROI of building an event community, and top event planning tips.

GatherGeeks is a weekly podcast for event marketers, meeting strategists, and pretty much anyone else who includes meeting and event planning in their job description.

Event Brew gathers event professionals from different niches to talk about the day’s hot topics, from whether planners should boycott destinations to the future of event marketing to what the Great Resignation means for the events industry.
