Transforming Events into Inspiring Experiences
Presented by: Christopher Lee, CEO, ACCESS Destination Services
As meeting and event planners, we have the opportunity to be so much more than simply organizers of services and things - buses, boats, ballrooms and badges. Meetings and events are meant to be inspiring and motivating, and planners are in the unique position of being able to create powerful shared experiences for our guests. Increasingly, incentive program attendees (especially millennials) expect some kind of unique experience, so whether you’re planning an exclusive trip for top producers or a VIP partner retreat, transform your event into an inspiring and motivating experience
'Show me the WOW' and Other Demands of the Incentive Customer
Presented by: Mary MacGregor, Vice President - Travel Group, BI Worldwide
Madelyn Marusa, Vice President, Industry Relations, AlliedPRA
Today’s incentive customers are looking for unique, engaging experiences like never before. They have less time, tighter budgets and a diverse audience to satisfy and engage. Their voices unite in asking their partners and suppliers for even more unique and inspirational experiences. They want to be wowed, they want relevant choices, they want to make it personal, they want engaging technology and communications and above all, they want memorable experiences. This session will address these and other demands of the incentive customer and highlight specific solutions and case studies as to how results were delivered.
How to Become Creative: Break the Pattern of Everyday Thinking
Presented by: Gebert Janssen, Managing Director, De Feest & Eventarchitect B.V.
In this presentation the attendees will learn how to become more creative. We are all thinking in patterns. That is what we all learned at school. As a child we are much more creative than as an adult. During this presentation it will be clear that we only have to train and think back to our childhood to become more creative. With some interaction and exercizes the attendees will get some tools to use in practice.
Adventure Travel: Are you Missing out on an Exciting Opportunity?
Presented by: Russel Walters, Strategic Director, North America, Adventure Travel Trade Association
