Addressing cutting-edge technology, talent, ticketing, sponsorships, scheduling, merchandising, operations, sustainability, charitable work, innovation and safety, FestForums® brings together festivals and events of all sizes for collaboration, professional development, and entertainment.

This year’s FestForums Santa Barbara had over 800 attendees, 60 exhibitors, 100 sponsors. Over a ten day period the event had 27 panels, some of which were led by Oniracom’s very own CEO Jacob Tell, CMO Mike Wald and VP of Client Partnerships John Lucchetti.

With two panel tracks each day, the panels included diverse and current topics such as VR, cryptocurrency, and the always popular festival bootcamp.

“The holograms panel was super interesting” said John Lucchetti referring to Oniracom friend Scott Ross, an advisor to the hologram company Eyellusion who presented on their technology at the event.

The event featured live performances by Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Dennis Quaid, and Dishwalla, as well as cocktail parties and award ceremonies.

Featured Speakers included filmmaker, cinematographer, and photographer, Hope Hall, New York Times Bestselling Author Jonas Koffler, comedian, musician, actor, and director Harry Shearer, and President of Live Nation Media & Sponsorship’s National Sales team, Maureen Ford.

FestForums co-founders Laurie Kirby and Stewart McNaught put together a truly incredible event this year and we can’t wait for FestForums Santa Barbara 2019.
