Meeting Design Institute is delighted to present the Meeting Design & Technology Streams that were developed with a partnership with the Meetings Show. “Our most successful and well-reviewed sessions last year were technology focused,” comments The Meetings Show’s Event Director, Steve Knight.  “Buyers and planners are constantly provided with solutions and methods to supposedly improve their events but not all are relevant and beneficial.  Our sessions examine the various technologies on offer, discuss their value and ultimately help organiser choose those of relevance to their events.”

Below you can find the full programme of all plenary sessions on Technology and Meeting Design.

9:50 - 10:45 Technology Stream Selecting the right technology tool for your meeting  
  We reached the stage that almost all of us admit we cannot do without technology anymore but still struggle with deciding when and which one do we actually need. Which factors should we take into account when choosing the right solution for our next meeting? Get a sneak preview of all technology available for the meetings, its purpose and understand the core difference between its functionality. Don't expect to find one single solution that works well for all types of meetings! This session will broaden your horizons on the technology available and help you understand how to take a strategic approach when selecting the right technology based on the meeting objectives. Join the session to grow and shine your technology toolbox and to challenge the experts why and when do you actually need technology. Maarten Vanneste,

Presentation improvement: the secret to great feedback
 
  We often find ourselves working with speakers who are experts in their field, but who could use some help with their actual presentation skills. It’s a tricky situation – after all, they’re the experts and we invited them! The secret lies in our ability to offer feedback in ways that are positive and productive.
This session covers key areas of focus and feedback that can significantly improve the way a speaker engages with his or her audience. Script format, room layout and timing can create the most interactive conference sessions ever. Some simple reforms with the help of a facilitator can finally make sessions really interactive.

12:30 - 13:30   Learning Carousel  
  Visitors looking for a different way to quickly and effectively understand the latest technological trends in meetings and events need look no further than the Learning Carousel. Created and moderated by the Meeting Design Institute this unusual format allows groups of visitors to swiftly see and learn from leading technology suppliers. Moving around a table-top presentation suite in small groups, up to 10 Exhibitors will have just two minutes to “pitch” their latest ideas, products and services to a receptive audience of visitors and buyers, who then have three minutes for questions before moving onto the next presentation.

9:50 - 10:45 Meeting Design Stream 10 tips to make great slides: the power of visuals  
  How you can help your speakers to design good slides? We can start by asking why do we need slides in the first place and what am I hoping they will do for my audience? Good slides are crucial as they help speakers to be clearer on a message and audience can get the most of the presentation.
In this session you will get some hands-on tips on how to make slides look better. The principles, the process and the price of doing that are all within reach. Bring your laptop to this session for a hands-on exercise taking you straight into a prettier, better, more impressive world... and learn from the experts on the tools that will help you scale this up to all (or at least most) of your speakers. A small set of simple tips can make a lot of difference.

How can we use technology to make meeting participants more active, involved and engaged?

Some tools are simple stand-alone tools and others are part of an event management software or an event app. No more boring meeting, it is time to transform your audience into really engaged participants!

9:50 - 10:45 Meeting Design Stream Multi Hub Meetings: the Future of Meeting Formats?  
  Multi Hub is a new and exciting meeting format that enables meetings that otherwise would not take place. It creates an opportunity to host even more meetings with less travel and more participants. Looking at cost, environment, out of the office time and more, a real international face-to-face meeting has some challenges. The conference call is a great format for small meetings with up to 6 or 10 individuals behind their laptop in a video call but not enough to create multidimensional interaction and engagement for larger group. Is Multi Hub format then a next step in hybrid meetings?  This session will present a successful case of the multi hub meeting from the medical world where experts were gathered simultaneously in three continents: Europe, South America and Asia.
