Looking for event marketing podcasts that you can listen to for ideas, strategy, and trends? Look no further. In this post we’re going to share 9 event marketing podcasts every event professional should subscribe to or at the very least listen to.

  1. Gather Geeks Podcast by Bizbash

  3. The Event Tech Podcast

  4. Event Industry News Podcast

  5. EventLab Podcast by HireSpace

How did we come up with the list?

Well, we were first inspired to make a list when fellow event marketers started asking for recommendations in Facebook groups for event profs. The answers were sparse, so we decided to curate a list of the best event marketing podcasts for event profs. After listening to at least one episode from each podcast over the last couple of weeks and reading all of the reviews on iTunes and Stitcher, here’s the final list we came up with.

1 GatherGeeks Podcast by Bizbash

Why You Should Listen? Hosts David Adler’s and Beth Kormanik’s excitement about events’ effects electrifies. A quick, witty, and deep podcast with golden nuggets of information and ideas. The podcast is best suited for anyone involved in planning events and meetings, from conferences, trade shows, and fund-raising galas to product launches, festivals & awards.

David has a kind of hypnotic voice and you can’t stop listening to him and his guests. I highly recommend this one on anyone’s playlist. (Psst, Overcast is a great free, but powerful podcast player for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch).
