What does it take to develop creative ideas? Sometimes it requires a trip back to the beginning and changing everything. In other instances it may require a small amount of tweaking of existing plans. Biz Bash’s Mitra Sorrells & Martha C. White wrote an interesting post titled, The 15 Most Innovative Meetings of 2014.
Their list includes examples of not for profits and for profits events. Some of the ideas were:
• Reducing the content and increasing space for networking.
• Charitable initiatives in partnership with speakers and local hotels
• A gift exchange where guest were invited to bring a gift that was related to their country to a “take one/leave one” table.
Many of us struggle as we look for new and interesting ideas to inject into our plans. This list of 15 should give you some inspiration.
