Workshop

Design Thinking as a Trend. Design Your Life

Lidia Borisova, Design Thinking Consultant, Service Designer, UX Designer, Sopia, Aalto University (Helsinki, Finland)

Design thinking is a new way of thinking that works for different areas of life: from the search for innovative business ideas to developing one’s own career path. In business, the method facilitates the accurate determination of a client’s needs and a corresponding unique design solution. In personal life, it is a way to overcome ineffectual linear planning and development trajectories in favour of ‘prototyping’ alternative demo versions of one’s self. Design thinking is based on the application of designer algorithms and design tools to a wide range of tasks and therefore ultimately refers to creative innovation. The versatility, relative simplicity, and efficiency of the approach have led to its being actively employed in resolving tasks of various scale and content across different sectors and industries.

The session will include theoretical and practical sections. The lecture will be devoted to describing the design thinking method within a theoretical framework. During the training portion of the session, participants will be invited to design their own personal and/or professional development paths. Workshop participants will themselves become designers. By employing the design thinking method, participants will be given the opportunity to master the creative process, something previously relegated to the artistic community alone.

How Can You Become a Certified Events Industry Specialist on the International Level?
Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) Programme

Professor David Hind, MPI (London, UK)

The meeting industry professional certification programme was launched in 1985. Since its inception, more than 13,000 specialists from 35 countries (both organizers and service providers) have received diplomas. Candidates for certification must possess three years of industry experience, full employment during this period, and must have accumulated a minimum number of CMP points (as part of specialized CMP conferences and workshops) depending on their activity and education. Certification includes a fee and an exam. Specialists receiving CMP status must undergo repeat validation every five years.

Pitch session

Associations in the Event Industry. Competition or Cooperation?

According to the R&C Research and Development Centre, there are about 20 global international meeting industry associations in the international market. These associations bring together participants of the event industry market from all over the world, representing from 35 to 600 destinations and hundreds of member companies. The largest of them are the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA), the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI), the International Association of Professional Congress Organizers (IAPCO), Meetings Professionals International (MPI), the International Association of Convention Centres (AIPC), the Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI), and the International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) among others. There are at least 5–7 national associations at work in every European country. For example, there are 5 major associations in the UK: the Association of Event Organisers (AEO), the Association of Event Venues (AEV), the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA), the Association of British Professional Conference Organisers (ABPCO), and the Meeting Industry Association (MIA), and each of them can boast unique expertise in a particular segment of the event industry.

In Russia, the meeting market is actively developing, as evidenced by the recent emergence of new associations and increased activity among those already in existence. How can one work together with other Russian professional associations operating within the same market? What are the similarities and differences shared between them? How can market participants decide which associations are really worth joining? Russian event industry associations have been invited to pitch themselves.

Event Hype. Hot Topics in the Programme – Carefully Considered Strategy or Just a Fad?

In 2015, 5 marketing forums and more than 6 sales forums were held in Moscow, while 2018 saw 4 women’s forums and more than 10 SMM and Internet promotion conferences. Hot topics attract an audience, and so event organizers make the most of an opportunity to put hyped-up topics to work for their events.

Hype is fashionable and surrounds important-to-know topics, speakers, and event formats. Hype can fill a thousand-seat conference hall. If you understand hype, you can easily increase the scale of a congress or conference, which is the dream of every event organizer and additional income for business. Hype event organizers will share their experiences.

Discussion topics:

  • How to be the first to bring a hot topic to an audience. How to make an event interesting without copying competitors
  • How to harness hype. Take a hot topic and successfully develop it. How to stay afloat and not be taken hostage by the subject matter
  • Just as famous actors fill theatres, top speakers fill stadiums. Many become famous thanks to forums and conferences. How can one find and attract an interesting speaker? How can one build cooperation effectively? And how can one understand when a star has lost its attraction? The secrets to working with star speakers
  • How to find an interesting format and make it popular

Artificial Intelligence vs Human Capital: How Business Processes in the Event Industry are Changing

It is difficult to imagine the future without smart neural networks of artificial intelligence (AI), virtual (VR) and augmented (AR) realities, and deep machine learning technologies, and with each passing year they become more advanced. Automation and the spread of artificial intelligence (AI) can increase efficiency, productivity, and profitability in the immediate future if managers are able to determine how best to make use of their potential. Technology is everywhere, and human interaction with the digital world is already becoming a continuous process. Efficiency is a key factor for success: the faster a business masters a technology, the more benefits it receives, and the less it lags behind its competitors. The event industry is no exception: session participants will talk about the combination of Event + AI + VR + AR.

Discussion topics:

  • How will artificial intelligence affect business processes in the event industry?
  • Is the use of modern technology complementary or interchangeable?
  • Is AI already being used in the event industry?
  • How do business processes change as a result of the introduction of artificial intelligence?
  • Will the emergence and widespread use of artificial intelligence cause jobs to disappear? Will the use of artificial intelligence lead to new jobs?

Event Human Capital: Building a Community in the Industry Around a Project

Interaction is an important component of human capital, along with material and financial resources among others. An event is a complex system of cultural and social relations that create a certain environment, which in turn creates the prerequisites and conditions for the emergence of groups of people who identify themselves with certain communities. To ensure the continued growth of this potential, organizers must learn to create, maintain, and develop an environment for building professional communities and carrying out productive dialogue with these communities. A professional community often understands the importance of creating an event project.

Exhibitions, conferences, fairs, and festivals can be seen as a multifunctional and high-tech platform for industry development. A strong community built around a project is the key to an event’s success. Session participants will discuss this thought.

Discussion topics:

  • Does an event really need a community?
  • Do proven universal algorithms for the creation, development, and interaction of a community exist?
  • Is it possible to build a unique community in order to support event activities on company, industry, country, and global levels?
  • Is it possible to create industry clubs based on an event?
  • Risks around building a community
  • What community formats exist?
  • How can one build dialogue within a community and keep members (members of the community)?

Just as Paul Gauguin chooses travel and Tahiti, so do professionals seek further development and the opportunity to make use of their knowledge. What’s next? How can one fulfil one’s full potential and find an outlet for one’s experience? What can one offer the world? Mentoring, downshifting, a change of activities – what should one choose?

In this session, our experts will share their experiences and answer difficult questions.

Discussion topics:

  • How can one fulfil one’s full potential after having reached the glass ceiling?
  • Is it true that when one door closes, another opens?
  • Where can new practical experience be found?

Trends in the Management of Exhibition and Congress Areas

Exhibition and congress infrastructure plays a key role in determining the quality of an exhibition event. The venue site serves as the basis for the infrastructure, meaning that site development and modernization is one of the most important factors for successfully developing the event industry. Improved technology for organizing and conducting events has led to site management’s becoming an independent professional field that requires training and the standardization of business processes related to construction, equipping, and management during the preparation and carrying out of events. Proper organization of site management processes can have a positive impact on the success of the exhibition itself, while poor organization can destroy the success or future growth of the event. Venue management business processes must be brought into line with the needs of the main representatives of the target market, the organizers/operators, as well as potential participants and visitors. By managing business processes, one can make management more performance oriented.

Discussion topics:

  • National and local site features
  • What organizers, participants, and visitors of events require of sites
  • Questions about the implementation of quality standards for services provided by the site
  • Questions of optimizing site management business processes
  • Business processes as a factor in improving the efficiency of site management
  • The impact of venue management (or site management processes) on the quality of events

In the Age of Business Forums: How to Create a Successful Forum for Businessmen

Recent years have seen a marked flourishing of business forums, and they continue to increase, along with the number of delegates attending them, exponentially; the statistics are enough to make any event organizer jealous. What is the secret of the format’s success? What makes each forum unique? How is content generated for this particular audience? How is a pool of speakers selected? What are business forums like in the regions? Organizers of the leading Russian business forums share their secrets.

Discussion topics:

  • Why are business forums so popular?
  • Creating content for the business community. What determines the choice of topics? Hot topics: what will always sell like hot cakes? How is event architecture created?
  • Such different speakers ... Politicians, businessmen, artists, life coaches – to be or not to be? The principle of choice. The secret behind a trend: why do life-coaches attract larger audiences than scientists or mentors? What do businessmen need? Inspire or surprise?
  • What do businessmen expect from business forums? Why is knowledge less valued than a show? Why do business forums fill stadiums?

Women in the Event Industry

According to Superjob, 72% of applicants for event manager positions are women. What qualities help women achieve success in this business? It is well known that while an event is being planned and held, work days for industry specialists go from 8 am to... 8 am. Which gives rise to the questions: how does one find time for family? Career VS family: which one wins? How can one grow professionally without also losing loved ones? Is it possible to combine career and personal life?

Session participants are women from the event industry who have fulfilled their career and professional potential and will share their experiences and reflect on the fate of the fair sex in the modern world.
