Budapest. The European Meetings and Events Conference (EMEC) will demonstrate how new ideas in room layout, technology, collaboration techniques and even catering can be put into practice immediately by EMEC attendees, driving business performance and attendee success from their own events. The MPI European Meetings & Events Conference (EMEC) from 29 to 31 January 2012 will feature a Meeting Design Area, EMEC 2012 applications, now available on iPhone, iPod Touch and BlackBerry Smartphone and dynamic sessions such as “The Revolution Starts Where?” and “Make Virtual Presentations Inspiring & Engaging.” EMEC 2012 also brings to Budapest MPI’s FlashPoint programme, which presents exceptional speakers in a showcase of rapid-fire presentations. Attendees will experience for example firsthand the expertise of FlashPoint speaker and Chef Christian Bitz, who consulted on the entire event’s menus. 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.
