The digital transformation of the events world is progressing rapidly, which requires event planners as well as suppliers to critically reflect on existing event formats and to develop new ones.

The Future Meeting Space innovation network has now released its innovation catalogue 4.0, presenting a comprehensive and sound overview of innovative technologies from artificial intelligence (AI) to quantum computing, that can significantly impact business events in the future. The catalogue offers examples of how these technologies can be applied in the world of conferences and meetings.

The Future Meeting Space innovation network, founded by the GCB German Convention Bureau, the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO, also focuses on the analysis and systematic clustering of current developments and trends.

“Technological innovations that elevate attendee experiences to a new level and enhance reach are part and parcel of future meetings,” said GCB managing director Matthias Schultze. “At the same time, human beings and their desire for personal interaction continue to be at the heart of events. Creating this blend of emotion and innovation is what everyone involved in the events world should strive to achieve.”
