The upcoming European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC19) is all about change. Through its revolutionary design, EMEC19 offers a unique learning experience rather than yet another conference. The 4-day program is focused on how meeting & event professionals can change the way they meet, experience and learn and how to apply new formats in their next event. EMEC19 offers a testing ground for event planners to experience new learning styles and conference formats. ‘Too often, conferences use the same design. We think it is time to change. Therefore, we designed a lab for professionals rather than yet another conference where you sit and listen all day’, said Gijs Verbeek, executive director MPI Netherlands Chapter. ‘EMEC19 offers sixteen hours of education and more than twelve hours of networking – bar time not included.’ The program of EMEC19 is based on four topics: Risk Management, Design Thinking, Leadership and Meeting Perspectives. Delegates have a choice to follow one of these four dedicated conference tracks – allowing them to deep dive into the subject – or cherry pick from the different sessions. Meanwhile, networking is integrated in several ways and moments during the program, e.g. based on country of origin, business interest and choice of leisure activities. Also, a conference dinner and a ticket to MPI Foundation’s Rendezvous are included. EMEC19 takes delegates on learning journeys to learn from cross-industry innovations. During these journeys, they explore how other industries deal with the same challenges our industry is facing. Offering a testing ground, EMEC19 is a great way to see and learn new formats – to develop attendees’ future business – as well as a safe environment to experience new learning styles. www.emec19.nl
