FRESH is a two-day conference that refreshes conferences, meetings and events and increases their effectiveness. By introducing and demonstrating the latest tools and knowledge we provide meeting planners, meeting designers and meeting owners with applicable improvement. All presentations, room layouts, the venue, the staging, the processes, the food... everything is new or innovative or at least interesting enough to investigate.
WHY YOU WANT TO BE THERE
FRESH has a unique and strong (100%) focus on the content side of meetings:
what participants learn from speakers and each other
who and to what extent participants meet new professional contacts
how engaged they leave
Everything that generates value in meetings and makes them more effective, that is what we are interested in.
WHO IS COMING
FRESH gathers a new and smart combination of participants unlike any other industry conferences. A unique mix of technicians, intellectuals, statisticians, philosophers and most of all game changers and influentials... Their jobs will be senior meeting planner, meeting designer, producer, supplier of a tool or service, facilitator, etc. All people with strong opinions and a desire to make meetings move.
WHAT IS HAPPENING
New technology will be tested, scientific experiments conducted, new formats deployed and novelties introduced. FRESH is the conference on the edge of future conferences! Until the last minute, the organizing committee will gather novelties, experiments, functional fun, hybrid and virtual technology and world premieres... All these elements will be experienced by the participants and demonstrated in sessions, round tables, campfire meetings, etc.
I WILL BE YOUR HOST
After a dozen of amazing Fresh Dinners at IMEX and EIBTM, after the experimental Meeting Content Meeting in 2007, this is the time for our own conference.
With the Meeting Support Institute, Project Meeting Architecture, Denmark and Copenhagen, plus a host of amazing individual supporters, I know we will make this a success.
I look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen where I will proudly be your host!
