Videoconferencing, online meetings, telepresence and other collaboration technology are gaining traction. Does that mean the in-person conference is obsolete?
No – not by a long way! But its role has changed. Some of the benefits of coming together for a conference can be achieved just as effectively in other ways, but that’s a good thing because you can focus on the things that make the conference experience special.
In this presentation, we look at ten trends affecting our professional and personal lives, and how conference organisers take advantage of them. Good conference organisers adapt to these changes.
Great conference organisers embrace them and create transformational conference experiences.
The Future of Conferences
As a conference keynote speaker (and somebody who has been in the industry for over 20 years), I have seen major changes in the way conferences and events work. Especially in the last few years, because of technology, changing demographics, and global connectivity.
