A wide range of association leaders and event managers are giving their perspectives on the meetings of the future, and how we can move the industry forward. Meet the contributors.

To envision and design the event of the future, MeetDenmark with the curation of Stylianos Filopoulos (Association by Design), recruited a number of experienced and knowledgeable association leaders and event managers to participate in a workshop in Copenhagen. Each participant brought their own unique experience and perspective to the workshop, which was important for MeetDenmark, as the findings should reflect the diversity of the meeting industry.

Besides the association representatives, the workshop was supported and co-facilitated by Per Kristiansen, Co-Founder, the Association of Master Trainers in the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Method. Robert Rasmussen, Co-Founder at Association of Master Trainers will be co-facilitating the MeetDenmark session at the IBTM Association Leaders Forum
