Meeting Design Trends
Between the creation of each day’s event schedule and coordinating the travel of many people to one destination, the details of a meeting’s aesthetic appeal and ambiance can become lost. My suggestion this year for meeting planners is to not lose sight of the “design” of a meeting. We purchase designer shoes and designer beverages, so why not purchase designer meetings?
The primary difference between a standard meeting and a designer meeting is the value of the experience for each attendee. The meeting’s message will be the same whether or not you customize the meeting’s design, but designer meetings will offer a reinforced message or a lasting impression unlike a cookie-cutter meeting approach.
My favorite new design trend are Eco-friendly meetings. From the moment your guests arrive, your guests are not only participating, they are contributing through interaction with different Eco-friendly meeting systems. Designing meetings to keep attendees actively engaged is crucial to a meeting’s success, and engagement starts with meaningful participation.
