What does your attendees say about your event when they get back in the office the morning after?

Do they tell their colleagues what a fantastic day they had, all of what they learned and who they met? Or do they do the ‘walk of shame’ – thinking back on a quite boring day that they really don’t know how to place? “What return did I actually get on my investment (of time, money and energy)?”. Or, if they do tell their colleagues about the event: Do they only share what happened at the party after the conference (how the color of the drinks matched the event logo, or how the band was superb)? If your job is to design, plan and execute professional conferences that are meant to change the behavior of the attendees, you want them to remember more than just the party. But, do you take measures to make sure they do remember what they learned?

Check out this week’s blogpost on EventAnne.com (link in bio) for a method to enhance learning at conferences.

Today was the Global Meetings Industry Day (GMID) - a celebration of our industry that takes place each year in April. On this day, meeting professionals gather for events all over the World to focus on what the meetings industry contributes to the business world 🎉
In MPI Denmark we had a salon event just like last year. We were gathered at the CPH Business to meet around live on the premises talks as well as talks streamed into Denmark from several places around the World: We had MPI Spain visiting from a conference with the Finnish MPI chapter, a talk about meetings at sea from Miami, FL, and visits from MPI France-Switzerland, MPI Belgium and MPI Turkey. There were a debate with teachers who educate our youngsters to the future of the meetings industry, input about women in meetings, a presentation of EventWell, and many other topics.
Although hybrid meetings sometimes come with their technical challenges, we had a fantastic moderator - @hrlarsen_dk - who manages these challenges with the coolness necessary. Thank you, Hans 🙏

It was a great day, and I can't wait for another celebratory day on April 4, 2019! See you there?

Have you ever considered having a meeting at sea? If you gather people for conferences or incentives over a few days, you might want to consider this option.
Having your event on board a cruise ship adds to the experience, simply because it is news-worthy to most people. I regularly meet people who think of a cruise as a once in a lifetime dream - something that is almost unreachable - and that alone will attract attendees. On top of that, the entire experience space is set for you as there are lots of different venues within the venue (ship): colorful, stylish, formal, cozy, dark, loud...! You can choose your venue of the day from many different meeting rooms, auditoriums, restaurants, bars etc. and match the feel of your event with the purpose.

What do you think of having a conference on board a cruise ship? Would you consider it? 🛳

Next in my series of articles about the Future of meetings is about hybrid meetings, and in this week's blog post (link in bio) I am letting you in on the do's and don't's.
In hybrid meetings you combine a face-to-face meeting with a virtual component. You gather participants in a physical meeting room and have speakers and/or other participants join you online from remote locations supported by technology that allows everyone to see and hear each other. It is a brilliant way of assembling people far apart without the cost of expensive flight tickets.
Hybrid meetings are here to stay and they do have their advantages, but I don't believe that face-to-face meetings will ever be eliminated. We still need to meet in order to get to know each other, create fruitful relationships and learn from each other. So, don't fear for your job because of technology - we are still far away from robots connecting personally like we do when we meet!
Jump on board the hybrid meeting train...towards more face-to-face meetings 😊

Today, MPI Denmark had a seminar about 'How to get the most out of your MPI membership'. The attendees got an introduction to the international part of MPI (we ARE part of something bigger!) and could then visit stations to learn more about all the hidden gems of MPI. Themes like MPI Foundation (did you know that you can apply to get a scholarship to attend conferences or obtain your CMM?), conferences (WEC and EMEC), certifications such as the CMP, and all the interesting information you can find online on MPIweb.org came up.
Getting to know each other and establishing a network is an important part of being a member of MPI, so our community efforts were also brought up.

The seminar ended with a cozy dinner and delicious food as well as further discussions about our common industry and industry network.

This week I focus on education on my social media...in case you haven't noticed. ☺️ And today - as it is Thursday - I'll throw back to last week where Thursday was the International Women's Day. I attended the MPI Denmark event planned by Majbritt Sandberg where we celebrated women who inspire us. But what does that have to do with education? Well, in order to stay current and be able to teach experience and immersion design, I need to constantly gather inspiration from my colleages, peers, industry network, the society, etc. etc. Inspiration that I can use in my teaching.
How do you get inspired - or educated?

I would like to reach out to @themiceblog who is my inspiration and the woman I mentioned during the event last week. Irina, you are a great inspiration to me. I love your work and don't miss out on your posts, though I don't always chip in as much as I would like to. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for inspiring me to keep going after my dreams for my company ❤ .

One of my pet peeves within my beloved meetings and events industry is EDUCATION - or the lack of 🤓 I have given presentations on how we need more educational opportunities in the industry in Denmark, and I continue to advocate for enhanced education - both within the formal educational system and from private training providers.
This is also why the focus of my own business is to educate meeting professionals about the strengths lying within experience and immersion design.

What educational opportunities do you have in your neck of the woods? Have you taken any formal education or training courses within meetings and events? 📕

Are you afraid of speaking in public? Many, many people are afraid of this, and in a survey death actually ranked third on the list of things people most fear...the respondents were more afraid of 1: Entering a room full of strangers, and 2: Speaking in public 🎙This week's blog post (link in bio) addresses this second item on the list: The fear of speaking in public 😱 Most speakers haven been there and we all have to start from somewhere - that's why I've thrown in a few pieces of advice that have helped me overcoming my own insecurity of speaking in front of a crowd. They might be useful to you too 📃 How do you feel about speaking at an event? Do you have any advice for those new to the task?

The second and last day of the Meetings & Events Fair has completed. Wow, what a fantastic couple of days! 🎉 At MPI Denmark Learning Lab we had another 3 talks today – on the future of meetings, silent co-creation and meeting rooms that work in real life. I have made a lot of new friends, we’ve gotten new members and partners, and it’s been a pleasure being there as usual. I can’t wait to come back next year. Hope to see you there 🤩

Today was the first day of the Meetings & Events Fair, and what a day! It has been exciting, interesting, experiential, and fantastic. We have had talks about themes as diverse as process design, food trends, Slido, and safety, and I have met a lot of new and old acquaintances – as usual it’s been a great pleasure being there. Tomorrow I’m back for more learning and networking - can’t wait! 🙌

Right now it is ’calm before the storm’! 🌪Today is day 1 of the Meetings & Events Fair in Copenhagen, Denmark. The place where almost all of Denmark’s venues and meeting industry suppliers are gathered to show off their skills. Here is the MPI Denmark Learning Lab where we will have 7 different talks over the next two days. We have great expectations and will see lots of activity for these two days. If you are in the vicinity, drop by and join the conversations in the Lab. See you there? 👀

Tak til @organicer_dk for den freaking awsome kop jeg modtog i går 🙌 Jeg kan ikke vente med at flashe den, mens jeg drikker min almost ninja-kaffe (ikke helt sort) og planlægger et udbud af events lige så stærk som kaffen! ☕️ .

We're one step closer! In December I unveiled a teaser about an event we're working on, and now we got one step closer to the actual event 🎉 @christinehaerslev and I are organizing a training course where you'll learn how to design immersion and experiences with a focus on the importance of activating your senses. If you could choose anything, what would you like to see included in such a training course? Topics, themes, interactions... 🤔

Do you involve your attendees before the conference and induce a feeling of ownership in the subject? Or do you make the event a one-off and then forget all about it until next year (because “We always have this event in October!”)? Read this week’s blogpost (link in bio) where a guest blogger shares his views on the matter 🤔

What’s the aim of your company strategy weekend? Is it all about the party or do you promote the professional agenda with your staff? 🎉📋 Sometimes it seems to me that focus is on the most tangible elements rather than on the primary purpose of the event. What do you think? .
