Editors note: In the past two years, our "Event Industry Blogs To Follow" has become one of the most popular sections of G2Blog. This year, we've added 25 new blogs to follow -- both in the United States and around the world. That puts our featured blogs at 55 total and counting. Enjoy.
As we have said before, event professionals have many ways to keep up with the latest trends and best practices. There are associations which provide education and networking opportunities, podcasts to listen to on the go, and live events designed for event pros. And of course, there are also blogs. We've previously showcased 20 Best Event Industry Blogs to Follow and 11 More of the Best Event Industry Blogs to Follow.
When our own G2Blog was named one of the Top 20 Event Marketing Blogs and Websites for Event Marketers by Feedspot, it got us curious about exploring further.
