As a direct result of last year’s success, EIBTM 25 will deliver an enhanced Future Events Experience with new elements and additional contributors to the area. EIBTM 25 will take place from Nov. 27 – 29 at Fira Gran Via Conference Center, Barcelona, Spain.
In partnership with Newtonstrand and Eventskills, the Future Events Experience will incorporate innovative speaker presentations, a live demonstration area showcasing pioneering technology and a number of networking and education opportunities for all attendees. The feature area on the show floor will provide a dedicated space where exhibitors and buyers can experience and interact with the latest in cutting-edge technology and events services available in the market.
“There is no doubt that technology within the meetings industry and in fact across all industries is progressing at an exponential rate,” said Graeme Barnett, exhibition director, EIBTM. “As the world’s leading event for the meetings and events industry, it is of primary importance that we not only ensure we are offering the latest in technological innovations for our own show but also that we are helping all of our attendees learn about the latest products and trends so that they can utilize these when driving their own businesses forward.”
The Future Events Experience will incorporate the Experts Clinic this year. The new drop-in clinic will provide a platform for all attendees to meet with experts in meetings and events technology. The experts will be available to consult attendees on all event technology related subjects.
“The Future Events Experience is designed to provide a platform which will directly allow visitors to interact and experience different technology and innovative services that they can use for their next event, conference or meeting,” said Barnett.
Attendees can also attend the “Ask the Experts” panel, which will take place on Nov. 28, facilitated by Corbin Ball, CEO, Corbin Ball Associates. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with leading events and meeting technology experts about the latest innovations and trends as well as how to utilize them best in future conferences, meetings or events.
Newtonstrand’s Chance2Speak platform will also return for the EIBTM Future Events Experience. This platform provides delegates with the opportunity to become a speaker at EIBTM with a 20-30-minute time slot to share their views on a topic of their choice.
