What Will We Call Face-to-Face Meetings Next?

Fork in the Road

The third-party, face-to-face meetings industry has, by design, placed itself in a silo. It leaves business on the table, hinders the evolution of the meetings industry and provides a disservice to existing customers. To continue using one-dimensional metrics—net square feet, number of exhibitors and/or number of attendees—to characterize and measure the growth of the meetings industry ignores the new multidimensional reality and underestimates the potential of the digital audience.

5 Event Management Principles Every Planner Should Know (But Most Don’t)

Event Leadership Institute

ELI runs a 10 week online course on Event & Meeting Management Fundamentals. Most event planners today are self-taught and learn on the job. Either they wing it, and hopefully learn from their mistakes, or they learn from someone who winged it. The best case scenario is that they got to spend a lot of time shadowing a more senior colleague, who in turn may have learned from a colleague, etc. If you follow that chain back far enough, the original person winged it.

Being There: Mr. Spock, Pro Football, & the Value of Live Events

Event Leadership Institute

Pro football games, like the meetings and events industry, provides a perfect example. The same can be said of the meetings and events industry. If you were Mr. Spock, the logic-driven Vulcan with the pointy ears on Star Trek, you’d probably make some very logical conclusions about our society based on your observations. Any on many of them, you’d be dead wrong. Watching an NFL game in person, even if you have a great seat, you can’t see the whole game very well.
