Three Tips for Conducting Better Multilingual Events
If you're in the business of planning and producing multilingual conferences or major business events, you know that applicable trends come and go. But three new musts likely will steer your efforts for years to come.
- Meetings as Experiences: Today's conferences are far more than mega networking and information-exchanging encounters. The best are unique, enriching and memorable experiences. Toss out the "been-here, done-that" and develop a themed multilingual experience that involves a high degree of interactivity and features that attendees won't get anywhere else.
- Local Flavor: Many conferences are turn-key operations that look and feel the same no matter where they are, and that's doing a huge injustice to all involved. A conference in South Florida should bear little or no resemblance to one in Seattle, particularly if attendees are expected to travel great distances. Focus on incorporating local elements such as food, music and art into conference features for your multicultural guests.
- Going Mobile: Today's savvy event planners cannot underestimate the value of mobile technology. It's an indispensable part of our everyday lives and should play a critical role in your meeting Mobile apps boost attendee participation, help you quickly deliver information and allow for making multilingual tweaks throughout an event.
