Meeting Architecture: Does Your Organization’s Meeting Have the Infrastructure to Meet the Needs of Your Stakeholders

As competition continually increases for organizations to capture attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors, many organizations are taking a deeper look at the structure of their meetings and conventions and determining ways to prove value to their stakeholders. Organizations are taking a strategic approach towards their meetings, and are evaluating and implementing new strategies to better engage their attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. They are establishing a return on their stakeholders’ time and money.

As planners, you may be familiar with the latest buzz words, such as personalizing the attendee experience, next generation learning, gamification, experiential design, event co-creation, etc. Planners and experts will share their experience and tips on how to navigate these trends and make changes that could result in enhancing the meeting experience for your attendees. Learn how to evaluate and strategize from experts, to increase the success of your organization’s meetings and conventions.
