3 Trends That Will Disrupt the Meetings and Events Industry in 2017


The primary shift in the meetings and events industry in 2017 is going to revolve around delivering business events that engage attendees in more multidisciplinary ways.


For the last five years, the industry has been focused on two trends impacting meeting design strategy above all else: the rise of event technology and the emergence of the Millennial generation. There was growing consensus in 2016, however, that it's time for the meetings industry to move beyond its preoccupation with those themes.
