MPI gears up for EMEC 2012 in Budapest

Meeting
Professionals International (MPI) has revealed its plans for this
year’s European Meetings and Events Conference, to be held in Budapest
29-31 January.
 
Elevating the mobile experience, MPI will offer
EMEC 2012 applications, now available on iPhone, iPod Touch and
BlackBerry Smartphone that allow delegates to evaluate speakers and
sessions in real time, to access social networking sites, to
direct message other delegates and maintain a customised diary for the
conference.  Many of these mobile elements and meeting design area
experiences are designed so European event professionals can experience
live what they are learning about in sessions such as ‘The Revolution
Starts Where?’ and ‘Make Virtual Presentations Inspiring and Engaging.’
 
EMEC
2012 also brings to Budapest, MPI’s FlashPoint programme, which
presents speakers in a showcase of rapid-fire presentations on
forward-thinking topics that have broad-reaching impacts on events and
business. FlashPoint speaker and Chef Christian Bitz, will talk to
delegates about how he consulted the entire event’s menus using the
programme.
 
Bitz is a Danish top-model-turned-guru-chef, author,
speaker and television personality who has a master’s of science in
nutrition and is passionate about making meetings better by choosing
food that stimulates the brain. With Bitz’s guidance, the host venue,
Budapest Congress and World Trade Centre, will create four unique coffee
breaks where delegates can experience healthy and local food. The
themes: Vitality, Brain Food, Back to Nature and Artisanal.
 
EMEC
is pushing the experiential education into the conference’s social
events as well. The opening reception is at the Budapest Museum of Fine
Arts where delegates will experience Molecular Mixology, the latest
innovation in the catering world.  Delegates can then explore further
advances in how new catering selections can impact learning ability in
meeting attendees during Bitz’s Master Class on ‘Eating Right – Makes
Your Meetings Bright.’
