Two Chicks Three Seats Episode 65: Events in the Metaverse, Members Only Experiences & More with Alicia Shiro of Aced It Events


Many say that the pandemic changed the events industry forever. The heart of the industry stays the same with the importance of connection and gathering, but the means of doing so have been impacted for good.

But let’s think of that as a positive. There are now more ways than ever before to have an event experience, especially in the corporate event world. The pandemic opened up new avenues and made older ones more of a norm. It has certainly been an interesting journey to watch the changes in the industry unfold.

In this episode of Tripleseat’s podcast, Two Chicks, Three Seats, my co-host Kate Kennedy and I are joined by Alicia Shiro, Founder & CEO of Aced It Events in New York City for an informative discussion about the events industry. Shiro specializes in one-of-a-kind corporate experiences, conferences, galas, and retreats, working with all types of high-profile clients across the globe.

In the interview, we discuss a variety of topics, including the current state of the event industry, the intrigue of members-only clubs and experiences, and how the event industry is making its way into the metaverse. Shiro provides her insight and knowledge on it all. This is an exciting episode that you do not want to miss!
