WEC Grapevine: The Live Digital Experience

A “live digital WEC” is exactly what it sounds like. Instead of a virtual stream of pre-produced sessions, you will have a fully live and comprehensive individual experience, with the ability to learn, network, and engage like never before. On top of that, the WEC Digital Experience will include programming exclusive to the online audience.

As always, our mindset for WEC is to take calculated risks that help define the industry curve, and in this case, it’s planning safe and effective meetings and events. And while delivering a fully live digital event at the same time as delivering a live, in-person event is a risk, that's exactly why we do it—we take the risks so we can share our learning journey with all of you. We'll create a case history of learnings from being among the first within our industry to deliver a live, cohesive hybrid event.

WEC Grapevine 2020 | Digital Experience: Welcome to 2030: Your Hybrid Event Life

Nov 6, 2020 9:15am ‐ Nov 6, 2020 10:15am

For over a decade, the industry has been content to be "in-person first", despite having bullet-proof solutions for live streaming and remote audience engagement. Then COVID-19 happened, and we were forced to take our events completely online, all at once. And what did we see? Increased attendee counts more diverse and worldwide engagement, hundreds of new streaming providers, and for some even a bump in membership and revenue. There is no question in-person events will always have a future, but now that both planners and attendees have had a taste of the power of online events, how can we move forward? The future is hybrid. Learn how modern events will incorporate two distinct audiences, online and in-person, and how to build unique, engaging experiences for both.

The planning for WEC 2020 was in the home stretch until COVID-19 derailed everything. When MPI’s leadership made the decision to postpone WEC to November, the WEC planning group had to throw out years of traditional event planning best practices and not only start from scratch but transition a highly interactive live event into a hybrid conference. Kevin Iwamoto, GLP, GTP and Melinda L. Burdette, CMP, CMM, HMCC, Director, Events for MPI discuss what happened and how MPI pivoted to re-create WEC 2020 in a pandemic world.

Meeting and event planning are a constant negotiation. There are simple negotiations like price, terms, and concessions that define a predetermined outcome.

BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELT! This fast pace program is designed to reunite with those who expect to analyze and participate due to the extreme new challenging business negotiations.
