Campfire 1
COMPELLING EVENT CONTENT CREATION
Stellar content is at the heart of successful event planning. But it can require a wholly different and more time-consuming approach for staging hybrid events with a live and a remote audience to engage and inspire.

Adapting event content to be just inclusive to delegates in the room and on
the other side of the world can be a Herculean task. But it doesn't have to be with the know-how and tools of the trade.

This session addresses how components like animated content, pre-produced content and interactive gamification ignite hybrid events without taking double the time to deliver.

MASTERING HYBRID EVENT SUCCESS
The future is hybrid. But mastering hybrid events to perfection – that’s the burning question.

They’re twice as nice on multiple levels. But they can also be double trouble in terms of the extra planning, facilitation, outsourcing and new technology that are thrown into the mix.

During this campfire, our speaker
chats through their journey to planning leading-edge hybrid events. They will share the triumphs and the pitfalls of how they learned to implement immersive experiences that continue to have a strategic impact on live and remote audiences long after the closing speech has been delivered.

CREATING GOLD STANDARD EVENT BRIEFS THAT DEFINE AND DELIVER ON KPI’S
What does a great brief look like? When done well it’s the solid foundation for all key stakeholders to build a phenomenal event upon.

But event success in the 21st century is determined by what it achieves. From tracking the most popular sessions to new lead generation, an awesome event
brief should align with strategic goals and define desired results.

This session is an unmissable run through of how to create an exemplary event brief. In addition, it covers how a superlative event brief inspires successful collaborations that help event planners shine at a corporate level.

HOW TO ARTICULATE THE NEED FOR AN EVENT AND WHY
Most stakeholders want to run events to help their teams develop and achieve business objectives. But formulating a strategic event plan for key stakeholders can be challenging, even arduous. It's a process that takes time, effort and carefully considered insight.

This session will walk through the formulation of an
irresistible event plan from starting to fill a blank page with meaningful data to presenting to senior management for sign-off. more... ...less

HOW TO ORGANISE A LEADERSHIP EVENT
It’s no wonder the term ‘thought leadership’ is being used more and more in the events sector. Bringing leaders together is business critical for the present and the future of any company or organisation.

But what does an awe-inspiring leadership event look like? Why is it different to organising other meetings,
conferences and events? And how should event planners approach leadership events from a different angle?

This session covers the key considerations for designing and delivering bold, purposeful events to captivate leaders and set the scene for future forward discussions and outcomes.

MANAGING AND EXCEEDING STAKEHOLDER EVENT EXPECTATIONS
Event organisation is an even more rewarding experience with highly engaged stakeholders supporting the events team towards a shared goal. To this end, stakeholder management is pivotal to event success, to event ROI and also to meeting overall business objectives.

But some event planners experience difficulties with getting stakeholders on
board. It can be the case with stakeholders who have never had dealings with events in a strategic capacity. They don't understand the value of events simply because they've never been party to real-time insights.

This session will explore how to instigate and nurture stakeholder engagement for amplified events success and also business success.

THE MONUMENTAL TASK OF EVENT ORGANISATION FOR 1,000+ GUESTS
Organising large events for over 1,000 guests can feel like such an astronomical task it’s hard to know where to start. A big number of guests requires more attention to small details.

This session will be a treasure trove of top hints and tips for event organisation on a supersized scale,
the potential obstacles to look out for and what to pay extra attention to. more... ...less

SUREFIRE SECRETS TO NEXT LEVEL CONGRESS MANAGEMENT
Congress management involves planning and delivering specialist conferences for your audience. It calls for the highest levels of experience, broad shoulders and thick skin. But it’s also in-demand, rewarding and often high-profile work.

This session provides a great insight for newcomers or event professionals aspiring to the complex world of
congress management.

It will probe what post-pandemic congress management looks like and how to manage a diverse team of agencies, suppliers and stakeholders impressively.

CREATING THE PERFECT, RESULT-DRIVEN AGENCY BRIEF
A formidable agency can help event planners cut through the noise and stand tall amongst colleagues, competitors and industry peers.  So, finding the right agency is the start of a career-spanning beneficial relationship for many event professionals.

But every brilliant agency relationship starts with a brilliant brief, whilst those agency
relationships that break down can be due to a lack of the right information at the right time.

This session will address the question – “What does a brilliant agency brief look like?” Expect lots of thought-provoking discussions about what makes the event planner/agency relationship cool or chaotic.

Keynote – National Grid – Global Youth Engineering Climate Conference
15.30 - 16.00 KEYNOTE SPEAKER 2
This is a story of inclusivity. It’s the story of how an innovative virtual experience, held in the run up to COP26, overcame geography to connect an audience of young engineers from 110 countries and inspired a greener energy future.

As a Principal Partner of COP26, National Grid sought to
engage an audience outside their normal focus. Working with Live Union, they brought together a community of nearly 2,000 young people around the green energy transition.

This case study shows how a sophisticated and highly creative experience connected people with one another and with new ideas. It demonstrates the valuable role that virtual experiences can continue to play in a post-pandemic event world.
