Convening Leaders, the annual conference organised by PCMA is an appointment that every meeting professional should not miss.
The conference showcases the latest innovations in event technology, meeting design and business event strategy. More than 4,000 passionate meetings industry leaders participate in three days of unparalleled education and orchestrated networking.
Attending the conference you can experience top-rate education, networking and business opportunities.
But what if you cannot be there?
Too busy? This year you cannot make it?
Or maybe you just need a taste of the conference to plan to come next year?
“live the experience of a participant”
We love the slogan of Periscope (the live streaming application owned by Twitter), explore the world through someone else’s eyes, and we think this may be even more effective applied to our industry.
So the idea is to share with you what we experience there, at the Convening Leaders conference, that will be held in Vancouver from the 10 to the 13 of January 2016.
Through our eyes, those meeting professionals who are not able to attend the conference can be connected online and be virtually there with us, participating to some of the activities of the 3 days.
Every live streaming session will be interactive so you can ask us to meet someone, to attend a specific session or to show you something from the backstage of the conference (if possible).
Please do not expect any professional recording, we will use our mobile devices!
This is not an official live streaming even if we do it with the permission of PCMA. It’s the point of view and experience of one or more eventprofs.education reporters!
How to be connected during these 3 days:
We will live stream the sessions we are attending mainly using Periscope.
