Although we may already be well into 2016, it is not too late to apply the following trends. These strategies may not be so new but they are being reintroduced as a means of achieving more effective meetings with better outcomes:
Getting Involved with the Participants
Meetings shouldn’t just be about making a handful of people listen to what you have to say; meetings today should be more about ‘engagement’.
The moment a participant confirms that they will be attending, this is when the interaction should start to kick in; pre, during and post-engagements will ensure that communication exists outside the meeting, while contributing towards a healthy relationship throughout the actual conference.
Keeping Relevancy Intact
It is equally important to maintain the focus of an event or meeting to ensure the utmost involvement of the delegates; the relevancy of the agenda should be the main consideration.
Currently a huge trend, content marketing assures an effective meeting; attendees should be made aware of the benefits of the gathering. As the organiser, it is your role to keep the event complementarily aligned to the particular organisation.
Bespoke Meeting Venues
Don’t limit your meetings to the four walls of the company. Bespoke venues are now an emerging trend, with several offsite locations that are being offered all over the UK. You may choose from different types, sizes and interior designs, among others.
For purpose-built meeting rooms in London, &Meetings has facilities that can accommodate anything from 2 to 100 people and you can also choose from our wide range of layouts and arrangements.
It goes without saying, meetings, conferences or events will be more effective when every aspect has been considered.
