Planning an event takes time and there are tons of details to take into consideration for your special event. Here are some trends that are taking place in the meeting areana.
Whether it’s a nod to green meetings or just convenience, note pads and pens are taking a back seat to iPads and electronic tablets as the preferred means of taking notes and documenting learning in the meeting room. Conference centers are responding with charging stations so the devices can charge during breaks. Meetings are active with texting and tweeting exchanges with meeting-related content.
Healthy culinary continues but it doesn’t mean the Danish trays aren’t emptied daily. Meeting attendees are demanding healthy, sustainable cuisine and refreshment break selections – even going so far as to request an authentic culinary experience reflecting the native cuisine.
After years of postponed or deferred meetings, many companies are using teambuilding to inspire camaraderie and revive enthusiasm. Today’s team building programs are about scavenger hunts, early morning group fitness runs, competitive bowling, and culinary cook-offs. Fun, challenging and delicious!
A bonus trend includes plenty to do on property for attendees, up-to-date fitness and recreation and strong WiFi signals throughout the building. It is all expected today and definitely adds to the overall experience.
