The new approach will tie into the ethos of this year’s show, which is encouraging events professionals to #TakeTheTime to attend to ultimately save time.
Allen and Raasted will be supported by Sofia Rodrigues, knowledge and meeting design consultant and president of the MPI Belgium Chapter, who will lead speaker management. conferenceemcees.com professionals will also be facilitating, hosting and moderating the content during the show, as well as supporting speakers and the pre-event experience.
