The European Meetings and Events Conference (EMEC19) has begun at the World Forum in The Hague.
This year’s conference, organised by Meetings Professionals International’s (MPI) Netherlands Chapter, has the theme of ‘Changing the game’. C&IT will be there to bring you all the latest industry news and trends.
EMEC19 runs from 9-12 February and begins with ‘learning journeys’ outside the conference centre. Once all delegates are back in The Hague, artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde will give his keynote ‘Changing your perspective, think like an artist’.
"It is an honour to host MPI’s European Meetings and Events Conference in The Hague [for the first time]," said Nienke van der Malen - van der Horst, director of The Hague Convention Bureau.
"This is a great outcome for both MPI’s local chapter and our city and we are looking forward to welcoming the delegates."
The conference is set up around four main topics: Risk Management, Design Thinking, Leadership and Meeting Perspectives. The four-day programme is focused on how meeting and event professionals can change the way they meet, experience and learn how to apply new formats in their next event.
On Sunday 10 February EMEC19 takes delegates on learning journeys in different industries, from leading an orchestra, to experience the balance between managing and motivating musicians, or joining an interactive crisis management game in a war game room.
The Hague is widely known as the International City of Peace and Justice, with the Peace Palace, the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration located there.
More than 30,000 professionals work in one of the 200 international organisations and 111 embassies located in The Hague.
