Innovation, white space culture and purposeful meetings - just some of the themes in IMEX America’s wide-ranging education program this year

New insights into innovation, "white space culture" and purposeful meetings are among the striking themes that feature in the wide-ranging education program at IMEX America 2017, taking place in Las Vegas from October 10-12.

The program for four days of free first-class education is now live. It gives details of the 180-plus engaging education sessions covering 10 very different tracks that will provide outstanding learning opportunities - and valuable clock hours – for the thousands of industry professionals at the show.

The schedule reveals sessions to suit highly experienced senior professionals looking for new ideas and to update their knowledge as well as for those relatively new to the industry. It is not only wide ranging but also eye-opening with intriguing session titles such as; Fishbowl: solutions to what’s keeping you up at night, Neuroscaping™- applying science to improve event ROI and Cyber safety – is your head in the cloud?

Revelations about Purposeful Meetings

It all begins on the Monday before the show opens. Monday October 9 is Smart Monday, powered by MPI and supported by other association partners, and the day starts with fascinating revelations when Janet Sperstad presents industry research on Purposeful meetings – driving deeper meaning and insights during the opening keynote.

This is the first of more than 30 inspiring sessions during a day dedicated to learning that includes a packed program created for everyone in the industry. There are also special education programs for senior association executives – the new Association Leaders Forum – and the Executive Meeting Forum for meetings strategists working in the corporate sector, as well as the ever popular PCMA Business School.

Wider perspectives on Purposeful Meetings, the IMEX Talking Point for 2017, emerge from the program throughout the week with Understand why you don’t understand – and be understood, Make a movement - the hierarchy of human gatherings and many more.

Learn about white space culture

The IMEX trade show and business appointments get fully underway on Tuesday after Juliet Funt’s morning keynote – Activity is not productivity. This delves into the relatively new sphere of white space culture and introduces new thinking on increasing creativity, productivity and engagement.

Recognising the influence of the economic and political trends in the world, former White House director of economic policy Todd Buchholz will be sharing his knowledge and views in his morning keynote on Wednesday: Prosperity ahead – or not?

Plenty of innovation and technology education

Innovation and inventive approaches to ongoing challenges are prominent throughout the week, with innovation tours twice a day and sessions such as Building a culture of innovation in your in-house team and Innovate or die – revitalization strategies for your events before culminating in Thursday morning’s keynote by Brent Bushnell, From relatable to down the rabbit hole. Win with surprise and delight.

The importance and influence of technology in the industry guarantees it a place in the program. New technology for impactful, decisive meetings, ‘sing augmented reality to enhance participants’ experiences, and Using event tech to manage teams like a boss are among more than 40 tech sessions and tours to help buyers gain a better grasp of the latest technology developments.

From technology and business skills to health and well-being, and sustainability, the key topics in the industry today will all be illuminated by expert speakers, thought-provoking presentations, workshops and campfires at the Inspiration Hub, now located in Hall G next to the show’s popular Food Court.

USA: Convening Leaders destinations announced: 2019 Pittsburgh, PA – 2020 San Francisco, CA

The Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) announced today the destinations hosting their annual 2019 and 2020 Convening Leaders event. Convening Leaders, held each January, is the definitive event for the business events industry and continues to grow attendance and exceed audience expectations. More than 4,200 professionals participate in three days of educational collaboration and orchestrated networking. The event has grown more than 30% in the last nine years by making face-to-face business event innovation the cornerstone of the program.

In 2019 PCMA will host Convening Leaders in Pittsburgh, PA, known as” City of Bridges,” located at confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela and recognized for its 400+ bridges and breath-taking vistas. The destination once known as “The Steel City” has transformed into a technology lightening rod with companies such as Google, Apple, Bosch, Facebook, Uber, Nokia, Autodesk, and IBM among the 1,600 technology firms generating $20.7 billion in annual payrolls and generous local intellectual capital.

Located in Downtown Pittsburgh, the David L. Lawrence Convention Center blends space, functionality, and flexibility with cutting-edge technology and promises to create an unforgettable Convening Leaders experience. Pittsburgh is home to 68 colleges and universities, including research and development leaders Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh. PCMA will tap into these cerebral resources to bring risks, new ideas and innovation to Convening Leaders’ content. You just might get a chance to take a spin in a driverless Uber!

In 2020, San Francisco, CA, will host PCMA’s Convening Leaders annual event. A mosaic of colorful, distinctive neighborhoods, San Francisco is a city of life-changing technology, trend-setting cuisine and famous postcard views. Within this seven-by-seven-mile metropolis attendees will discover ethnic enclaves such as the Mission District and the leafy glades of the Presidio and Golden Gate Park. Over the years, this supremely tolerant city has set the bar and welcomed a diverse collective both culturally and intellectually.

San Francisco is a renowned magnet for meetings of all sizes, from self-contained meetings based at one hotel to citywides utilizing multiple properties and the Moscone Center. Just blocks from Union Square, San Francisco’s Moscone Center is about as central as it gets. It’s walking distance to hotels, restaurants, museums, attractions, public transit and more. In 2020 the center will showcase their recent expansion of more than 170,000 gross square feet of flexible meeting space, including a 50,000-square-foot ballroom.

Convening Leaders 2018 will be held in Nashville, TN, at the acclaimed Music City Center. Registration for the event opens this year in late August at conveningleaders.org.
