To be held 7?9 February, 2016, at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel, EMEC 2016 aims to apply new formats and meeting design principles that offer return on attendee participation. Meetovation is a Danish meeting design concept that makes meetings and events less conventional and more active, efficient and responsible. The five main elements of focus include: active involvement, responsible thinking, creative setup, local inspiration and return on investment. "We integrated the principles of Meetovation into every element of the conference because we want to practice what we preach," said Pierre Fernandez, senior director of European operations at MPI.
The conference will have two main facilitators, Ann Hansen and Bo Krüger, who, as co? developers of the Meetovation concept and training programme, will encourage attendees to write the next chapter in their own professional story. Most speakers are new to EMEC and MPI will deliver more than 28 education sessions, including preconference workshops, deep dives and campfire sessions.
It will be the third time that MPI has hosted a conference in the Danish capital. The conference will also include a Hosted Buyer Programme to provide business exchange between planners and suppliers, and the MPI Foundation will host Rendezvous at the Toldboden, whose proceeds will go toward the MPI Foundation endowment to fund chapter grants and scholarships. MPI´s EMEC 2016 partners include Business Events Denmark, Wonderful Copenhagen Convention Bureau, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel and the MPI Denmark Chapter.
