Let’s get creative – interactive sessions and new Play Room at IMEX America

Creativity and engagement are set to top the agenda at IMEX America this year. A new Play Room and dedicated education sessions from both meeting and entertainment professionals are set to provide a fresh look at meeting planning.

The new Play Room, powered by Play With A Purpose, will be held throughout IMEX America, 13 – 15 October in Las Vegas, offering attendees a creative, interactive, hands on “play space”.

With ‘quirkshops’ during Smart Monday on 12 October and on the Inspiration Hub throughout the show, the Play Room will showcase a variety of tools and techniques, providing planners with immediately useable ideas to implement in meetings. Quirkshops will cover room design, technology, networking tools and teambuilding ideas, enabling planners to create more engaging, creative meetings. Planners can work with others to get to grips with human whiteboarding, gamification, humour power and zen tangles among others.

The Inspiration Hub, home to all show floor education during IMEX, has a dedicated creative learning track with impactful sessions designed to boost engagement and create a memorable delegate experience.

Human connection – a lost art in a noisy world will be delivered by award winning magician and MPI Keynote Tim David on 13 October. Through his work, Tim has learnt what makes people tick and will share many tips in this motivational presentation uncovering the key to effective and persuasive communication and fostering connections.

Award winning film director Josh Tickell makes movies geared toward the 80 million people between the ages of 18-35. According to Inc. Magazine, he is “America’s #1 Strategist” for connecting with the Millennial Generation (also known as Generation Y). His MPI Keynote Managing and marketing to the future of Generation Y on 14 October is set to explore this further, explaining how to tailor sustainability policies, communication, HR and customer service to meet the needs of the attendees of the future.

Patrick Henry, former Nashville songwriter, performer and MPI keynote says: “If you can’t create an emotional connection with your customers…you’re going to lose them”. His keynote address on 15 October, Becoming ‘Remember-able’, shares real life stories to show how to build an extraordinary customer experience, achieve personal and professional excellence and build loyalty among their team.

Carina Bauer, CEO of IMEX Group, comments: “In a rapidly evolving marketplace, it’s essential to stay up to date with the latest trends and develop a fresh approach to planning and hosting meetings. Our new Play Room is an exciting new addition to IMEX America. When combined with our creative education sessions and the outstanding line up of MPI Keynotes, we hope to provide delegates with the latest business practices which they can take back and apply to their meetings.

Alongside the Creative Learning focused education sessions are nine other speciality tracks including Business Skills, Marketing & Communications, Risk Management & Compliance, Technology & Social Media, Trends & Research, Health & Wellbeing, Diversity, Sustainability and General Education.

The Inspiration Hub, home to all show floor education at IMEX America, is split into six areas with more than 180 education sessions – each catering to different learning styles. There are seminar rooms, a campfire area and a Hot Topic area providing the opportunity to debate the latest industry issues with peers. The Meet the Experts Clinic offers individual appointments with an industry expert and presentations at the Research Pod area showcase the latest industry research.

Vorsprung durch Wissen – die IMEX fördert Erfolge durch maßgeschneidertes Weiterbildungsprogramm

Vorsprung durch Wissen – die IMEX fördert Erfolge durch maßgeschneidertes Weiterbildungsprogramm

Die IMEX in Frankfurt wird auch 2015 ihrem Ruf als treibende Kraft und Plattform für die Entwicklung der MICE-Branche (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions und Events) gerecht und präsentiert einmal mehr ein innovatives Weiterbildungsprogramm.

Dreh- und Angelpunkt des gesamten Seminarangebots im Rahmen der IMEX wird in diesem Jahr der erweiterte und deutlich vergrößerte „Inspiration Hub“ sein. Somit sind sämtliche Seminare und Workshops zentral vereint und können optimal in den Tagesablauf des Messebesuchs integriert werden, kurze Wege inkludiert.

Zehn Schwerpunktthemen – wissen, was wichtig wird
Das gesamte Seminarprogramm ist in diesem Jahr in zehn Schwerpunktthemen untergliedert, die alle Bereiche der Veranstaltungsbranche abdecken: von „Technology & Social Media“, „Risk Management & Compliance“, „Trends & Research“, „Health and Wellbeing“, über „Diversity“ , „Sustainability“, „Creative Learning“ und „General Education“ bis hin zu „Business Skills“ und „Marketing & Communication“. Davon werden über 170 Einheiten in englischer und 30 in deutscher Sprache angeboten.

„Business Skills“ – für mehr Erfolg und Effektivität am Arbeitsplatz
Wie führe ich schwierige Gespräche mit Kunden oder Mitarbeiten? Und wie schaffe ich es, unter Druck souverän zu bleiben? Basierend auf der Analyse von mehr als 6.500 Teamsituationen und zahlreichen Praxisbeispielen enthüllt Peter Holzer den unsichtbaren Code von Dominanz, Macht und Charisma.

Markus F. Weidner greift aus seinem Buch „Gut ist nicht genug – Das Qnigge Prinzip oder warum Service klare Regeln braucht“ das Thema Feedback als wichtige „Business Skill“ auf. Er erläutert anhand von Praxisbeispielen den Wert und die Bedeutung von Anerkennung in zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen und beleuchtet den Zusammenhang von Führung und Leistungsfähigkeit von Mitarbeitern.

„Marketing & Kommunikation“ – strategisches Wissen, praktische Tipps
„Kommunikation der Zukunft – wie schaut sie aus?“. Horst Wagner beleuchtet in seinem Vortrag, der in Kooperation mit der Netzwerkstatt Anders Denken von VERANSTALTUNGSPLANER.DE angeboten wird, warum die Kommunikation der Zukunft in der Steinzeit beginnt, warum moderne Belohnungen archaisch sind und Anerkennung für den Menschen so wichtig ist.

„Creative Thursday“ – ein ganzer Tag für die Kreativität
Neu in diesem Jahr ist der „Creative Thursday“, der der Kreativität gleich einen ganzen Tag widmet. In verschiedenen Seminaren, interaktiven Workshops und „Campfires“ erfahren die Zuhörer, was eine Veranstaltung wirklich kreativ macht und wie eine kreative Ideenfindung maßgeblich zum Erfolg eines Events beitragen kann.

Carina Bauer, CEO der IMEX Gruppe dazu: “Mit unserem inspirierenden Weiterbildungsprogramm wollen wir Besuchern und Ausstellern jedes Jahr wertvolles Wissen und Experten-Tipps mit an die Hand geben. Unser Team scheut dazu keine Mühe, jeweils die neuesten Themen und Trends der Branche ausfindig zu machen und die besten Redner, Dozenten und Experten zu engagieren.“
