Keep reading to discover just how Disney Meetings & Events can help you to design an experience that will leave attendees energized and excited to return to your conference year after year.
Group Tech Experiences
Technology goes hand in hand with creating immersive experiences at meetings and conventions. When you meet at Disney, you have the option to incorporate virtual reality to delight your attendees in thrilling ways. Through a pair of virtual reality goggles your guests can feel as though they are flying on a high-speed rollercoaster without ever leaving the ballroom - while others can enjoy the experience by looking on to an external screen with amazement.
Incorporating a personalized experience has become increasingly important as millennials make up larger percentages of the workforce each year. Photo-capturing interactive mirrors combine technology and personalization to give attendees a digital memento perfect for sharing on social media or sending to friends and family. Meeting with Disney Meetings & Events means your attendees will always stay connected with complimentary WIFI available in meeting spaces, hotel rooms, and common areas. Utilizing these innovative technologies is imperative for positive ROI on your event as the desire to be an active part of an event experience increases.
Health and Wellness
Hosting a wellness-based program at your next conference will put attendees’ minds and bodies at ease and drive motivation and effectiveness later in the day. When meeting at Disney, guests can enjoy a plethora of serene outdoor venues and jogging trails, perfect for maintaining physical wellness. A variety of health-conscious catering options are also available to ensure that attendees maintain a balanced diet in order to keep them energized for full days of engaging sessions.
Mental health and mindfulness are top of mind for many as events more closely mirror our attendees’ daily lives. Incorporate a mindful minute into the beginning of your next general session to assist attendees with setting intentions for the day and refocus on the purpose of your convention. In 2020 corporations are taking mindfulness one step further by offering attendees opportunities to participate in volunteer work for charitable organizations. These activities not only promote corporate social responsibility but they also give attendees the opportunity to give back to a community in-need.
Innovative Sponsorship and Branding
Brand sponsorship has never been so sweet! When your sponsors/exhibitors work with our dedicated meetings and events exhibitor resources team, there are endless possibilities as to what can be accomplished. An interactive chef station like the one seen here is perfect for a sponsored snack break. Alternatively, exhibitors can incorporate expertly designed florals, branded charging stations and delicious coffee bars into their booth for an added wow factor. Speak to your exhibitor resources concierge or convention services manager who will provide consultations to determine what options would be best for your group.
When you incorporate these up-and-coming meeting trends into your next event, attendees will be sure to make note of the unique and exciting experience they had with Disney Meetings & Events.
