Host: David Adler
Guest: Kristin Banta

Sponsored by CORT Events, this episode of GatherGeeks is part of season two of our “Royal CORT” podcast series, which includes insightful convos with top event and experience designers. BizBash founder and chairman David Adler sits down with award-winning celebrity event designer Kristin Banta, owner and creative director at Kristin Banta Events. A teacher and mentor to the industry, Banta’s clients have included Justin Bieber and Oprah Winfrey. In this conversation, Banta touches on how everyone is craving tactile experiences—but warns event pros not to overstimulate the senses—how multiculturalism and aspirational travel is having a huge impact on events, the art of hosting and how to make guests feel special, and designing for introverts.
