Creative Conference Formats - Meetings And Conventions

Creative Conference Formats - Meetings And Conventions | Eventista - Special Events | Scoop.it

 In response to a need to keep and increase attendance at conferences, planners have developed new education formats that create unique, immersive experiences.

 

Easy access to information is changing the way association members engage with their education. Today, organizers are faced with unprecedented competition from social media, webcasts and countless other online resources that allow potential conference attendees to learn just about whatever they want, whenever and wherever they want.

 

"People don't need to wait for formal learning opportunities anymore," says Kathleen Edwards, president of The Learning Evangelist LLC, a Maryland-based consultancy specializing in effective learning environments and strategies. "They're driving their own learning, so where's the incentive to travel to a conference and spend the money if they can get what they need somewhere else?"

Failures Let People Fail

Failures Let People Fail | Eventista - Special Events | Scoop.it
Never let anyone fail before you’ve done
everything appropriate to help them succeed.

 

If you hear the train’s whistle and see the light in the tunnel you know the trains coming. If you let a train wreck happen without saying something, at best you’re foolish at worst you’re cruel.

 

Letting people fail isn’t:

 

Saying nothing when a wreck is around the corner.

 

Standing on the sidelines gloating.

 

Forgetting about financial costs.

 

Ignoring the negative ripple effect of failure.

 

Passive resignation to inevitable defeat.

How to Plan a Meeting for Heads of State | eventjuice

How to Plan a Meeting for Heads of State | eventjuice | Eventista - Special Events | Scoop.it
It sounds so glitzy – Heads of States (HOS) jetting in from around the world to talk about the major issues facing nations. From glamorous cocktail parties to intimate board style meetings, any event that includes an HOS has unique needs.

 

You might be thinking you’ll never have to deal with an HOS event, but any event planner for high-level individuals or large corporations may face this. I’ve planned multiple HOS events around the world and until you go through that experience there are details you can’t possibly imagine. And I say that to event planners, who are some of the most detail oriented people in the world!

Here are the five things I wish I had known in advance:

Infographic: Are You Revealing Too Much on Social Networks?

Infographic: Are You Revealing Too Much on Social Networks? | Eventista - Special Events | Scoop.it

Social-networking sites are a hacker's dream: a sometimes public online community where unsuspecting people post personal information. But what information can and should be posted on social networks?


Cloud security firm Trend Micro examined popular social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and Pinterest and found that most require identifying information like location, employment, birthday, and education.

 

Tumblr is the only site that does not ask for any details, aside from username.
According to Trend Micro, one in four Facebook users location-tag their posts each month, while 16 percent of Pinterest browsers offer their address. The two sites also carry the same average of 229 friends or followers.
