Audience DNA: Is it changing?

Baby Boomers and Millennials will remember a time when you could go offline fully. Now this concept is unimaginable. Technology will soon be integrated into our DNA, and we will all be dependent on it in different ways, whether we like it or not. We are always connected. We are augmented by sensors. Data is continuously recorded about our everyday life. In some ways, the media follows us everywhere. 

Putting Values First: One Year on at The Eastside Rooms

From one perspective, The Eastside Rooms could not have opened at a more perfect time. Built in the centre of Birmingham, the capital of the UK’s events industry, within 18 months of the arrival of the Commonwealth Games. The venue is part of a massive infrastructure development that is set to see the city become one of the most connected – as well as recognised – in Europe. 

On the other hand, we opened our brand-new conference centre during one of the most painful times in the history of the events industry – right in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Manchester Central welcomes Europe’s largest veterinary congress

Why hybrid meetings are putting planners in the driver’s seat

The debate over petrol versus hybrid and electric motor vehicles could be likened to today’s savvy meeting planner asking what the perfect meetings model for them is, says EventsAIR.

Buying a car today just isn’t the same as it was even 10 years ago. Car makers are now offering models that are powered by diesel, petrol, electric, or a petrol/electric combination.

Knowing which one is right for you can be a challenge.

And the same could be said of the debate around meetings management right now. Should I go in-person, fully virtual or hybrid?
