Do You Dare? Many Do And So Do We!

Every March, we publish the Spring edition of Kongres Magazine. This time it is dedicated to those people, companies, aspects, venues and whatnot in MICE that simply … dare!

GENDER EQUALITY IN MICE INDUSTRY

The inspirational women in the industry that are through their leadership setting grounds for a better MICE: Carina Bauer (IMEX); Jeannine Koch (re:publica); Natalija Bah Čad (Toleranca Marketing).

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Companies for which their employees’ wellbeing is at their front. We talked to Jens Mayer, from Jack Morton Worldwide’s German offices.

ENGAGING INTROVERTS IN EXTRAVERT-RULED MEETINGS

And we focus on introverts – who seem as if they don’t dare, but in reality, the extraverts very often simply don’t let them talk. Juup Laarman from Utrecht University of Applied Sciences shared with us her in-depth insight on introverts in meetings.

MPI EMEC 2019

We also focus on amazing events that dare – like the recent MPI EMEC 2019. In addition to the focused reportage, we had a quick talk on EMEC with Gijs Verbeek (MPI), Mark Stoop (Scenarios4summits), and Steve O’Malley (HMCC, CITP, CIS, Maritz Travel, MPI).

MEETING DESIGN VIEWS

What is a daring meeting design? See views by: Angeles Moreno (MPI), Eric de Groot (Meeting Designers), Jan-Jaap In der Maur (Masters in Moderation), Kim Myhre (MCI Experience), Martijn Timmermans (The Red Line Project and Event StoryBoard), and Ruud Janssen (Event Design Collective).

SPECIAL VENUES

We didn’t forget to check the special venues that dare – like the first beer spa and a winery in a former monastery.

COLUMN

And last but not least, we also sought destinations that dared to raise from a three-star meeting destination into a five-star one. See the example of Rovinj and how you can follow its case and be daring as well!

WE DARE YOU TO OPEN THE NEW KONGRES MAGAZINE! IT IS NOT JUST DARING, BUT ALSO ENDEARING!
