What’s Trending in the Worldwide Events Industry

Events are constantly evolving and with 2019 just around the corner, what better time to get ahead of the curve and find out about all the latest industry trends, tips and techniques that will enhance your events toolkit for the year ahead.

With world-leading events industry trends forecasters and cutting-edge events technologists, we are looking for a top team of players in the events industry to join us for a fully-immersive and inspiring day of training and education with the leading exponents in the MICE market.

Way ahead of the market

Described as 'leading from a position that is way ahead of the market and continually springing surprises on the industry'. Who is the the most influential voice in the worldwide meeting industry?

That lady is Linda Periera, CEO, International Liason, CPL Meetings and Events, Lisbon

Defining and simplifying your customer journey

Do you really know your audience? Are you operating at the cutting-edge of the MICE market? Concerned about staff knowledge and education? Hear from the expert who proverbially 'trains the trainers' and is the No.1 Best-seller of published MICE literature, reports, and research.

Join Rob Davidson, Managing Director of MICE Knowledge.

Who are today’s audiences?

Talking about MY Generation. Who are these Millennials, Snowflakes, Gen Y and Gen Z, and what do they want from events? Kevin O’Sullivan, Editor of EventsBase magazine

Live-streamed by theme

Following the morning sessions delegates break into streams for the rest of the day, and rotate around four different event 'themes'. We like to call it 'live streamed by theme' and given that it's Christmas, the concierge-style service will no doubt be a fitting riposte to all that *choice*.

Each workstream has four separate topic 'stations' and every participant will partake in each: Event Technology; Communications; Theming and Well-being.

Throughout the day there will be 4 x 4 networking sessions and 4 x 4 opportunities to buy into the real estate that makes up this unique day.

4 x 4 = 16 speed dating sessions
