The Best of Meeting Design in a Day | London

Monday, 12 June, 2017
London | UK

The world of meeting professionals is moving ahead rapidly. 
Are you staying up to speed with these changes?

Designing better meetings and events is more relevant than ever and growing in importance. And while technology advances influence many aspects of the planning process, our knowledge, and skills as planners and meeting designers, must also evolve to keep up with the constant developments in the Meetings and Events Industry.

A new generation of participants, the demand for more interaction and the need for greater impact are just a few of the global drivers behind a drastically changing landscape. Meetings and events are becoming more interactive, and new methods and innovations are totally changing the role of the meeting planners.

The group of participants consists of a good mix of corporate, association and agency planners.


This training is full of demonstrations, peer learning, and case studies. The latest tools, creative formats, and best techniques are activated to get the most out this day of intensive learning. All the crucial areas of innovation in Meeting Design are addressed including: 

  • The Meeting Architecture Process
  • Meeting formats and techniques
  • The basics of hybrid meetings and the latest innovation
  • Presentation improvement and speaker support
  • Participant involvement: how to make it really work

Discover practical techniques, formats, processes and tools that you can easily apply at your next meetings and events

Hands-on real tools mean participants understand the possibilities of these tools for their own events.
