About the Smart Event Academy
The Smart Event Academy is a digital event training academy and community built by digital event pros for event professionals seeking to understand digital event technology and event technology project management.
Jen Santos developed the concept in early 2022 when she saw just how severely the pandemic had disrupted her industry. With the return to in person and surge of hybrid events, the existing shortage of experienced event project managers that understand tech became even more pronounced.
With event tech not going anywhere, she set about to create a system to give event professionals the skills they need to lead an event tech project with confidence and provide a welcoming place for industry newcomers to learn.
The Smart Academy Blueprint consists of three elements:
Smart Event Foundations
With live Q&A, an online community, and included 90-day mentoring program, the Foundations program is there to support participants along every step of their journey.
