On Monday, March 30th 2015, the MPI France-Switzerland Chapter, will organize ComInTech (Communication, Innovation, Technologies), the first French-speaking Congress focusing on event innovation and technologies. The congress will take place at the Microsoft Conference Center in Issy-lès-Moulineaux, near Paris. “ComInTech is a one-day congress dedicated to all actors of the French-speaking meeting & event industry”, explains Julien Carlier, President of MPI France-Switzerland and CEO of Social Dynamite.
The objective of ComInTech is to inspire event planners & suppliers, and emphasize how the use of technology can help them answer their clients’ needs today. During the congress, participants will actually have the opportunity to discover and take part in innovative technology demos.
What trends can be observed in the meeting industry? How & why interact with the audience? How to federate & create loyalty within a community? Which technology for which purpose? How much does it cost? What is the ROI? How best integrate these technologies into your event strategy? “ComInTech will offer the opportunity to brainstorm and exchange about all these issues, thanks to a new, funny & interactive format”, explains Alain Chanavaz, Technology Director MPI France-Switzerland and Founder of Meeting Solution Architect.
