Scvngrs, White Space and Weaves: Meetings 3.0
Modern meetings have become more complex than feeding delegates and arranging tables – the modern planner (Planner 3.0) must now be an expert on adult education theory, sustainability, complex legal issues, social networking and diversity in a global world. Terms like Scvngr and White Space are permeating our vocabulary, but what do they mean? Meeting organizers are facing a strong demand from delegates to provide value while reducing costs; technology is playing a bigger role than ever before. What does the meeting of tomorrow look like and how can you prepare to provide your attendees with the type of meetings that they need?
