The MPI Insights Economic Outlook 2019 took place yesterday at the Marriott London Maida Vale.

After welcoming guests, the first speaker was Kerrin MacPhie of Visit Britain, who spoke about the enduring appeal of the UK for international events and how Visit Britain can help companies bring business events to the country.

Next up was C&IT’s Calum Di Lieto, who gave a lively presentation on the ‘three pillars of innovation’, which had the audience thinking of ways in which technology they’ve seen in sci-fi films could become a reality at events.

Then Cvent took to the stage, with Judy Elvey, Kevin Christensen and Karin Althaus giving a sneak preview of the upcoming industry report ‘Inside the Mind of the Event Attendee’.

Finally, Tracey Boreham and Sue Darlaston took guests through some of the insights gathered in the AMEX M&E 2019 Global Meetings and Events Forecast, before the afternoon ended with networking drinks.
