MOST RECENT

Christmas is (almost) upon us. TV is showing Christmas movies, the radio plays the usual Christmas songs and we are all gearing up for the holidays 🎄 And if you want to live another day, don't be the one to suggest that we change things about this season...you just don't mess with Christmas! ⠀

And it works! So, should we live by the motto 'if it aint broken, don't fix it!'? Is it OK to sometimes keep what's working instead of insisting on updating everything? Will be fall behind if we continue as we've always done? ⠀

In my latest blog post I talk about keeping what works while staying up to date. Read it on EventAnne.com (link in bio).⠀

Happy holidays! 🎅⠀

Great meeting with the lovely girls from @canvasplanner today 🙌
We got to try the program live...and I love it 🤩 It’s just what an organizing/check list freak like me needs to avoid memory overload 👍

Can’t wait to use it in the planning process for DEMA 2019 🎉

Getting attention in an ever-changing World can be challenging. Today I represented MPI Denmark at @kursuslex trade show @messecfredericia and the theme for the show was ATTENTION 👁‍🗨 The sign above showed the entrance to ‘Attention Lane’ where they had collected inspiration for ways to do things differently at your events - like a selfie area and sharing food 🥗

Thanks to all who visited our booth! 🙏 And it was great meeting both new and old industry friends.

When looking into the matter of sustainability, you have to look beyond organic food. How about making meetings and events sustainable BOTH in a matter of the organic food, the reasoning behind the tote bag and in a no-waste kind of way ♻️ No waste of time and resources, no tote bag made with child labor plus a keen eye on the locally grown foods.

The new blog post on EventAnne.com addresses this issue and lets you in on some of the areas where you can incorporate sustainability in your event…because it’s not just about the organic food 🍎

Make the thoughts about this topic part of the experience at your event and tell the story about why you have chosen not to give out tote bags? Why you are serving the food you do? Etc.
Experience and immersion is the way to go, sustainability at meetings is becoming more and more important, and with the reasoning behind reducing costs, waste and unequal opportunities you are taking steps to future-prove your event 📈

On the blog you can get more tips and insights about how to create experiences and update your meetings to that they are ready for the future.

Listening to Jim Wilson talking about Human + Machine and the collaboration between the two now and in the future. Food for thought...and how it is going to impact the meetings and events industry? 🤔

Interesting perspectives at TakeAways in @ingeniorforeningen_ida to start a Monday morning.

We are not here to play the game. We are here to change it! 💪

That is the motto for MPI’s European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC) to be held in February 2019 in The Hague…and I can’t wait to be part of the event!
I’m really looking forward to attend EMEC again (I’ve been absent for too many years 😣) and to visiting the Netherlands for the first time 🇳🇱 MPI The Netherlands have really put an effort into creating an extraordinary event, and I’m sure it’ll be something special. I have no insight into the program yet, but according to the planners they have designed it differently from all the other events out there and are looking to change the way we learn, change the way we meet and change the way we experience. And I know they’re taking 50% of the learning outside of the conference room and have created ‘learning journeys’. Can’t wait to experience this! 💡

The conference will focus on four main topics: Risk management, leadership, design thinking, and meeting perspectives and there’ll be plenty of time to meet new and old industry friends.
Are you gonna join me (and about 500 other meeting professionals) in The Hague in February? It’ll be an experience you won’t forget!

Being a host is all about being agile and anticipate questions you might never imagine 💭

And it may also include the Disney 3-meter rule and 15 kilos of carrots for the camel, Abu, and his ‘driving buddy’, Pepe the donkey 🐫🐴 As a host at Copenhagen Culture Night you do not need to be an expert on underwater farming and space exploration (which were just two of our activities at the event), but you need to make sure both guests and exhibitors are serviced.
Read more about the Culture Night, the camel and hosting events in this week's blog post (link in bio) 📔

Obama var i Kolding - på lørdag er jeg! 📣
Nej, jeg vover ikke at sammenligne mig selv med en verdensleder som Barack Obama...men ligesom han besøger jeg også Kolding. Det sker på lørdag, den 6. oktober, hvor jeg glæder mig til at holde en workshop om den oplevelsesbaserede event.

@mungoparkkolding er en del af et projekt, hvor Trekantområdets unge mennesker (ca. 15-25 år) kan prøve kræfter med kulturentreprenør-miljøet, og de har inviteret mig til at undervise disse ildsjæle i at planlægge events 👩‍🏫 Kender du en ung i Trekantområdet, som går med en eventplanlægger i maven? Så giv dem et pip med på vejen om, at de kan tilmelde sig eventen på facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1023802127811489/

Det bliver skægt og hæsblæsende...og Mungo Park lægger hus til de events, der bliver planlagt på dagen. Det er da "an offer you can't refuse"! 👊

So, yesterday was the big day! The day when @silleschirmer, Tine Ebdrup and I had our event about designing experiences…and it was a blast! 🎉🍾 The participants did walk ‘n talks, idea generation and learned about aesthetic meeting rooms (did you know that originally ‘aesthetic’ didn’t mean beautiful to the eye? It means ‘the way we experience our surrounding through the senses and thus are affected’? I didn’t until Tine told me so!), and all input from the day is collected and will be distributed to them in writing.

During the event we incorporated the five experience elements and a few disruptions. And while I haven’t had any formal feedback yet, I’d say that it was a success.

Thank you Vilvorde Kursuscenter for providing the venue and F&B 🙏

And thank you Tine and Sille for the wonderful teamwork. We truly are a dream team 💭🍀

This week on the EventAnne blog (link in bio) I address the educational issue once again. The issue that we don’t have many (any I want to say!) educational opportunities for the meetings and events industry in Denmark 🎓

Unfortunately, this is not only a problem for meetings and events but also for the hospitality industry. The difference is that while there are no education for meetings and events, there are Danish educational possibilities for the hospitality industry – the youngsters just don’t want them.

I feel very strongly about this issue. Working in meetings and events is challenging, and how can we ask this much of our employees, if we don’t give the the possibility of getting a formal education to be able to handle all these challenges? Employers should add to this discussion, and while we wait for something to happen, I will do my very best to influence this discussion 💬🗯 Want to join me?

Details and preparation is in the blood of an event planner! Last week I met once again with the lovely ladies, @silleschirmer and Tine Ebdrup, to continue planning our event on Vilvorde Kursuscenter on September 19 📆

The event is a ‘walk the talk’ event about designing experience based events, and we’re working hard on providing the 50+ attendees with a learning experience. They will be immersed in 3 different workshops (one is about the 5 basic elements of experience design, one is about designing aesthetic meeting rooms, and the third is about involving the participants through conversation) and generate ideas for experience design throughout the day. We’re really looking forward to going through the event and seeing the output the participants round up 💡

As you know, no event is a one woman show, and it’s fantastic to work with people who have different perceptions on things than you do and with whom you just click! And Tine, Sille and I have somewhat of a dream team. Personally, I can’t wait to work with them again.
Who’s part of your dream team?

My last blog post on EventAnne.com was about how we are going from teambuilding to creative togetherness. And if you read the blog post and wondered what to do about your teambuilding activities – then look no further. Because this time I give you a few pointers on how to plan for your next teambuilding event (check out my bio for link to the blogpost) 📋 🔑 The key word when planning a teambuilding activity is looking for the purpose – not only to build the team but as to why you are building a team and what the team can learn or contribute with while they get to know each other. Roughing it in the woods is SO last century and when taking your meetings into the future, you need to look at all the aspects of it, including the teambuilding.

Are you future ready?

Different people calls for different presentation styles. In scientific conferences i'ts the norm to present your research on a poster and today at the 18th Nordic Symposium on Catalysis - NSC2018 in Copenhagen there are no less than 50 posters that will be presented during poster sessions throughout the 3 day program 📈

Poster sessions leave room for networking while learning and it's a great way to exploit two things:

1. Activity. You know they say that sitting is the new smoking! But as you stand up and move around the session area you incorporate some activity in a place where you usually mostly sit down.

2. Knowledge. Remember that the total 'amount' of knowledge in the room is way larger than what is shared from the stage. If you combine all that knowledge, you can't avoid giving your attendees the best options for learning something new. And usually that's what we want from our conferences, right? 🗣

Do you use poster sessions for other events than scientific conferences?

New meeting formats, hybrid meetings, and creative meeting room setup. The future is welcoming exciting new ways to meet. In the series of the Future of Meetings I am looking into the new meeting trends that are emerging around us 👀

This time on my blog I am looking into “creative togetherness with a purpose” which is the replacement for what most of us know simply as teambuilding. The word, unfortunately, has a lot of unfortunate and dissuasive connotations and it does not really cover the changes we are experiencing in the industry and in society in general. So, instead of thinking ‘teambuilding’ if you want to up your game for your meetings and events, think being together and getting to know each other while learning a new skill or helping those less fortunate.

Read the blog post on EventAnne.com (link in bio) and feel free to comment with your own ideas for “creative togetherness with a purpose”.

Today I met with @silleschirmer and Tine Ebdrup to put the (almost) finishing touches on the workshop we're having in September at Vilvorde Kursuscenter. The workshop is about experience design, the meeting space and participant involvement - and we can't wait for the event date to arrive! 🙌

At the event participants will get a chance to learn more about experience design, how to decorate your meeting space and how to involve their own attendees through conversation cards and 'taking a walk with a stranger'. We'll guide the participants through 3 sessions - one for each topic - and will collect all the ideas and input that pops up during such an event and create a catalogue of ideas to send to all the participants after the event.

We're really excited about the workshop and what to give a HUGE shout out to @fru.joergensen at Vilvorde Kursuscenter who's making this workshop possible! 🙏

If you want to join us on September 19, 2018 in Charlottenlund, then check out https://www.vilvordetalks.dk/workshop-19-september/. Please note that the workshop will be in Danish.

See you there? .

Are you taking time off too? I am currently half way through my Summer vacation...and I’m really enjoying it 💃
As you might know or remember, event planning is the fifth most stressful job in the World (read the blogpost I wrote about this last year - link in bio), so if you - like me - are working in events, do remember to take time off once in a while 😴 Recharge your batteries and do something completely different. I’m spending my vacation reading the books I don’t have time to read when working and seeing my very patient friends who only get to see me when I’m not working on some event (thank you, guys 🙏). So, if you find my IG profile going a little quiet these days, you now know that it’s because I’m soaking up the sun while reading a book and having a cocktail 📕🍸 Have a great Summer, y’all! ☀️
