While a large proportion of the show’s 70 hours of free educational sessions are curated by its experienced content producer, new for 2018 The Meetings Show is also inviting key leaders from the industry to submit proposals for the education sessions.
Centred around core themes including technology, marketing and branding, meeting and event design, leadership and more, the education programme is designed to keep attendees up-to-date with the latest trends and challenges as well as exploring what the future might hold.
Erica Keogan has been appointed as conference producer for 2018, and brings more than 20 years’ experience in the meetings industry, managing the global education programmes for exhibitions in Europe, Africa, India, the Middle East, China and North America.
David Chapple, group event director for The Meetings Show, said: “The meetings industry is continually evolving so there’s always something new to learn. To ensure that we continue to deliver the very highest calibre of speakers, it’s essential that we liaise directly with meetings professionals to access the fantastic pool of talent working within the sector. So, whether your specialty lies in predicting future trends, overcoming current challenges or developing innovations and best practice, we’d love to hear from you.”
Those looking to participate in the education programme when the show returns to Olympia London on 27-28 June for its sixth edition should provide a biography, a proposed title and, in no more than 250 words, a brief synopsis of what delegates will discover by attending their proposed talk.
