Right beneith the ECB building, a unique location in Frankfurt, our underground gathering unfolds ... FRESH dinner is the place where you meet others with an interest in the content side of meetings. You will have the opportunity to meet meeting planners, meeting designers, facilitators, ROI specialists, technology suppliers, actors etc. Our last dinner at IMEX Frankfurt was a great success attracting 85 participants with the functional fun of More Balls Than Most, pioneers in using actors to drive communication in meetings and Wim Rombaut as an ‘energy cocktail’ for conferences. This time We will have the international communication theather YESSI JADA on stage, re-FRESH-ing our batteries with their performance. Remember that this is not your average party with loud music and free drinks.

The philosophy of the annual TED conference is: “Ideas worth spreading.” Here are some ideas you can take away from TED.

Youtube is, met meer dan 2 biljoen views per dag, de place-to-be om je eventvideo's te posten. Voortaan kunnen evenementen ook live uitgezonden worden via de website. Op de officiële Youtube blog staat te lezen dat de site start met het uitrollen van Youtube Live, een nieuwe platform dat live streaming van evenementen mogelijk maakt.
What is it about a destination that makes it the right fit for any given event? Is it the glorious beaches and fantastic weather? Is it the pristine transport infrastructure? Is it the reputation for quality and excellence? All of these are certainly important, but I would say that above all the desire to host events is the most important factor, especially when it manifests itself in the desire and willingness to learn from more established destinations and recognised experts on industry best practices. The Polish MPI Club, soon chapter, has with two excellent events done a great service to the Polish meetings industry.
The Leading Event for Association, Society & Institute Executives will take place next 18&19 July 2011 in London. Meeting Support Institute will be there as well!!! There will be 3 tracks over 2 days enabling the multi job titles and industry sectors attending to find their niche.
This is not technically "slow food" in that this is a post about wine, delicious made in British Columbia wine, being served by gorgeous acrobatic wine fairies. This concept we originally developed at Cantrav Services with our partners Underground Circus as we began planning for the MPI WEC11 Welcome Reception, which took place last summer on the Olympic Cauldron Plaza beside the Vancouver Convention Centre. This is a centre known for its fantastic food, not something that convention centres are typically lauded for, and it was important to showcase the food and service, but also to create a fun and welcoming environment. Hence, the wine fairies came to be... they augmented the wine bars, but more importantly they put a smile on faces all around them as guests could come right up and have a glass of wine poured from above.
