WHAT ELSE DOES the new issue of KONGRES magazine bring: EIBTM media partner

T

he last issue of Kongres magazine in 2013, allows you direct access to the hosted buyers and exhibitors at the EIBTM trade show, that has established itself as a key global trade show of congress tourism. KONGRES has for many years been a media partner of the trade show with its own exhibition booth and enhanced co-operation through the conference INSIDE. In last issue of this year, we are going to highlight the main features of the future of events in relation to social networks and technological innovations. It will be dedicated to topics such as: – Participation and blurring of borders between the organisers and their audiences – Openness of events for participation and common co-creation of content – Communication, which has become two-way and interactive – The community which contemporary events are helping to co-create – Multimediality, with the help of technologies and uniting of formats the information and content at events can become more interesting To illuminate these topics, we can not imagine a better expert than Reggie Aggarwal founder of company Cvent. With Reggie, we have discussed the future of the meetings industry and unpredictability of social media.
