Insight, Intentionality, and Intimacy

Insight, Intentionality, and Intimacy | Events Management | Scoop.it

It has long been understood that most business or professional conferences and trade shows have been about the 3 C’s: content, commerce, and community. These three legs of the stool for big, national events made sense. First, we aggregate an array of education and programming known as content. Next, we host a football-field-sized trade show with booths and let attendees/“shoppers” wander, looking for the right company that has what they’re looking for. And last, we’ve seen it as our job to bring a community of like-minded people together in the hope that the right people would find each other and build or renew a professional relationship.

Top Tips: Stagnating Delegate Attendance

Top Tips: Stagnating Delegate Attendance | Events Management | Scoop.it

Delegate attendance: One of the main topics in the highly competitive world of associations where uncertainty continues to grow.

So, how can it be made sure that potential attendees know about the conference and its value? And how can associations ensure the impact of their conference is effectively communicated to prompt the attendance numbers to go up?

How to Engage Attention — and Why It's So Hard to Do

How to Engage Attention — and Why It's So Hard to Do | Events Management | Scoop.it

People spend roughly half of their waking hours — 47 percent of the time, to be exact — thinking about something other than the task they are performing, according to a Harvard University study. That means only 53 percent of people are actually paying attention at any given moment, according to Justyn Comer, cofounder of the meditation organization RWM Education, Inc. Skeptical? Comer suggests meditating for a few minutes: breathe in, breathe out, focus on your breath, and consider how frequently your mind roams to other subjects.

Driving Delegates From 'Lights, Camera' to 'Action'!

Driving Delegates From 'Lights, Camera' to 'Action'! | Events Management | Scoop.it

Conferences are an overwhelming rush of discussions, presentations and educational sessions -among others-. This flux of information makes it hard for delegates to focus their attention and allocate enough time on what truly interests them, let alone its impact on actioning their learnings. Often, the post-conference time-frame makes it nearly impossible for attendees to implement what they learned back at their workplace. All those engaging discussions, interactive workshops and inspiring presentations become a memory, when they could have potentially turned into actionable plans.

Customization Creates a Personalized Event Experience | Events Management | Scoop.it

We’re seeing a 2018 event trend for creating a personalized event experience.

Hone Your Radar To Seize These Conference Innovation Invitations | Events Management | Scoop.it

Innovation may be a tired word. There is no doubt that innovation has become an overused and confusing buzzword. It is riddled with an excessive number of meanings from authors, dictionaries, experts and our personal experience. Ask ten people to define innovation and you’re probably going to get a dozen or more responses. Innovation is change that creates a new dimension of performance said management guru Peter Drucker. Within the conference arena, innovation is the process through which new value is created and delivered to customers.
