The online platform for re-connecting, accessing the on-demand area to all sessions & additional content material plus networking opportunities was extended by 30 days to the new deadline of July 31st. The congress format was constructed to encourage free movement between flows throughout the day, in order to address the online challenge which was intensified during the period of pandemic: think, breakfast brains, stream and now work lab and the extra-mile areas. this year’s concept took a step further with joy-empower and thrive to energize delegates during the breaks, using interlude design to help members to remain connected, focussed and fresh although in front of a screen several hours per day.

As to the focus of the event, Elizabeth Niehaus, IELA executive officer explains “’Why a beginners mind? We need to shift our “old” perspective and open our minds, allowing ourselves to identify new territories with curiosity and open hearts. In this spirit, the online format gives our members areas and topics to explore to gain insights, obtain foresight and learn how to adjust course and reshape our future..
chairperson Guido Fornelli confirms: “A Beginner’s Mind is the only state of
mind we need in order to face the new now. This means that we have to adapt and
be more efficient. This Congress will look at new and disruptive actions to
help us to reshape our future with the professional ethos of continuous
improvement and life-long learning. In this spirit, this Congress will
accompany all IELA members in building new outlooks, new paths to re-invent
ourselves, thus harnessing new business opportunities.”

The Future of Exhibitions, Congresses and Events
In the event world, it’s simply part of life if things don’t work out as planned.
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
