The Congress of the Future

14November @ 08:30 - 10:30



Do you feel your conference is Future Proof (enough)? Are you aware of the opportunities, but feel like there are also a lot of challenges ahead? Does it sometimes feel a bit overwhelming?

The European Society of Association Executives and VISITFLANDERS Convention Bureau invite you to a breakfast workshop, presenting innovative ideas to bring your congresses and events to the 21st Century.

Experts will share their experiences on how a new conference format and/or the right implementation of technology can take your conference to the next level.

You will leave the session with novel ideas and useful tips, even for those events with smaller budgets.


The discussion will be moderated by Jenny Ennis, Meetings Manager at ESSKA, European Society for Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery, and Arthroscopy.
