The Event

EMEC19 (9-12 February 2019, The Hague) is the event where meeting & event professionals across Europe meet, experience and learn. An immersive experience with all aspects of game changing event design

Change the way you meet:
– Personal airport pick up by local attendees; valuable networking time to build true connections
– Opening night with facilitated networking through gamification
– Attendees could only order at the food stations together. Ie: in French, with someone with the same favorite color or holiday country. -Lazy Sunday morning activities: like running, yoga, guided city tour etc. Learning journeys in different groups again.

Change the way you learn:
– There are so many ways people actually learn, yet very few are commonly used at conferences. Learn from other industries during 1 of the 7 cross industry innovation learning journeys. Interactive deep dive sessions and keynotes on Festivalisation of Events.

Change the way you experience
– The element of surprise was key in the attendee journey. A choir of 80 youngsters hiding behind the chairs, a hidden bar, an escape room with 330 people. Over 50% of the program took place outside the conference center
