IAPCO EDGE Athens - 25-29 January 2021



Managing Events in a Virtual and Hybrid World

As events move into the virtual and hybrid world, skills need to be retuned and adapted to make the transformation. New skill sets, new talent will be introduced, and existing knowledge transformed to meet the requirements of this exciting direction for the meetings world.

Our first ever IAPCO Virtual EDGE Seminar will be taught by an international faculty made up of leaders in the business meetings industry who have real-life experiences and case studies to share with the audience.

This week-long immersive learning experience, will take you on a journey from bid to delivery, using virtual engagement techniques which will leave you not only inspired but also give you excellent practical knowledge to takeaway and utilise in your work. 

Throughout the programme, participants will have the opportunity to work on a real-life case study relevant to the day’s session to further solidify their understanding of the topic.  The participants will be split into groups and expected to report back to the faculty to expand on their learning outcomes. 

This virtual seminar will be highly interactive, ensuring plenty of time to not only learn from the faculty but knowledge exchange with your peers through group work, debate and discussion, Q&A’s and social networking. 

Start 2021, as you mean to go on – connected, inspired and prepared to take on the Virtual and Hybrid World.
