Designing your Business for the 21st century

Discovery is the first step of transformation and the theme of this years conference. But where will you find your own moments of discovery, of eureka? The answer is MPI’s 2015 European Meetings & Events Conference in Krakow, Poland.

EMEC15 is fast approaching and that means the program is getting finalized. With the launch of the expanded EMEC15 website, we're very happy to give a sneak peek on what's happening with the program!

The conference will start already before it's official start with a total of 5 pre-conference sessions. You can for example get acquainted with the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate in the form of a workshop or learn how to make the most out of your attendance at EMEC with the EMEC 4 ME session.

Keynote Speakers leading to discovery

The opening general session starts your Discovery. Keynote speaker Mike Walsh, a Global Nomad who spends 300 days a year on the road interviewing innovators, entrepreneurs and corporate revolutionaries, will provide you with fresh and compelling visions of tomorrow’s opportunities. With an engaging blend of first hand stories, global case studies and cutting edge research into consumer and technology trends, Mike will bring the future to life and help you prepare for what’s next.

Closing keynote speaker – Dr. Alan Watkins on “Coherence – The Secret Science of Brilliant Leadership” will show you how to change your capability, take control of your biology and regain energy levels equivalent to the levels you had 10 years ago. Read more about Alan and how you can recognize your many dimensions, control your biology and follow your bliss.

As always there are a myriad of concurrent sessions available for the attendees to choose from. Like the following:

  • A Fork in the Road: The Impact of New F&B trends and EU Allergen Laws on Meeting and Events
  • The Price is Right! Getting the Best Price for your Event, Product or Service
  • Powering Up: Women in Leadership in Events
  • Moving from Attendee to Participant: Audience Engagement Ideas to Improve Events
  • The Science and Art of Selling: The Building Blocks for Professional Sales 

Learning styles and session types

More sessions are published later this month and you can create your own schedule for EMEC. There are sessions for different learning styles, ranging from traditional lectures to interactive and peer-to-peer learning. Some of the sessions are so called "outside in" sessions where professionals from outside of our industry share their wisdom in topics that do give fresh ideas and insights to our industry.

Some of these concurrent sessions are called Master Classes which are sessions with the main stage speakers that provide you an opportunity to spend more time on the topic that interests you most.

In addition to the concurrent sessions there are shorter session called Campfire sessions. These 30 minute campfire sessions led by subject matter experts are eligible for CIC clock hours and will focus on current trends including topics like, future of meetings, corporate social responsibility, meeting and event specific technology and the current status of the industry.

Discovery is waiting for you! Prepare for a bright future and find your moment of Eureka. See you in Krakow in February 2015!
