In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, businesses across various sectors are continuously seeking innovative solutions to stay ahead of the curve and enhance productivity. The events industry is no exception, with event organisers increasingly turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to streamline operations, enhance attendee experiences, and extract valuable insights from data. And the financial value seems clear when we look at the responses to a 2023 report from McKinsey, which found that marketing and sales teams reported 41% revenue increase from AI adoption.

The events industry has seen a surge in demand for AI solutions, driven by factors such as cost pressures, the need for increased productivity, and a desire to stay ahead of technological advancements. As businesses seek ways to optimise operations and engage attendees more effectively, AI presents a plethora of opportunities across three main areas: automation, data analytics, and content engagement.


Automation plays a crucial role in streamlining event operations, reducing manual labour, and cutting costs. By leveraging AI algorithms, tasks such as resource allocation, scheduling, and logistics can be optimised for efficiency, allowing event organisers to focus on delivering a seamless experience for attendees. Automation can improve the customer experience and make things run smoother, while cutting costs.

Big Data

Data collection and analytics are another area where AI shines, offering insights into attendee behaviour, preferences, and sentiment. From before, during, and after an event, AI algorithms can analyse vast amounts of data to provide actionable insights, helping organisers make informed decisions and tailor future events to better meet attendee expectations. Leveraging AI technologies, including large language models like ChatGPT, enable businesses to process unstructured data, extract meaningful insights, and drive informed decision-making.


During events, AI-powered technologies such as computer vision cameras can provide real-time analysis of attendee engagement, mood, and interactions. By understanding attendee behaviour and sentiment, event organisers can make on-the-fly adjustments to enhance the overall experience and maximise engagement. Content engagement represents a creative frontier for AI in the events industry, where personalised and interactive experiences can be created to captivate attendees. From personalised recommendations based on attendee preferences to conversational AI interfaces that engage attendees in meaningful interactions, the possibilities are endless.

Applications for AI in this space include:

  • Computer vision enhanced campaigns
  • AI-powered creative content
  • On-site people matching
  • Personalised activity planning
  • Guest experience performance tracking
  • Live interactive experiences
  • Dynamic content remarketing

CodeLeap’s journey began with a focus on assisting startups in realising their innovative ideas by providing technical expertise and development services.

Despite the transformative potential of AI, there are still challenges to overcome, including data privacy concerns, ethical considerations, and the need for ongoing human oversight. CodeLeap emphasises the importance of collaboration between AI technology and human expertise, with AI serving as an enhancer rather than a replacement for human decision-making.
