The Science of Meetings & Events | Educational Series


Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence. 

MPI's Science Series seeks to uncover what these studies can teach meeting professionals about the design of experiences that matter for their organizations and enable positive behavior change among participants. What can key learnings and theories from psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology, chemistry, and other sciences teach us about human interaction and event design, space, and structure. 

Join this first-of-its-kind exploration into how science can play a critical part in your role as a meeting professional, and discover new skills that will enable you to plan the meeting of the future.

Boom - some events and experiences stay with us for a lifetime! Most are quickly forgotten, or not even stored in memory.
How can you make your event special and one that truly stands out?

In this entertaining and exciting session with evolutionary psychology and marketing expert Tim Ash, you will learn the fundamentals of what makes us remember and pay attention.
Tim has experienced live events from both perspectives. He is an international keynote speaker who has presented on over 200 events across four continents (from intimate CEO gathers to giant stages of 12,000). He also founded and chaired an international marketing conference with over 30 events in the US and Europe.
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask Tim your specific questions. So bring your curiosity and an open mind, and get ready for a memorable educational session!

Learner Outcomes:

1. Understand how memories are formed and reinforced - don't let your event be forgotten by following a standard formula.

2. Demand more from your speakers - insist on compelling presentation techniques that command attention.

3. Deliberately use surprise and group participation to create powerful and irresistible experiences.

1 Clock Hour | Domain G: Meeting and Event Design

People are craving being human. Deliver live event experiences that quench the thirst of needing face-to-face connections and community with others by designing an ecosystem that fosters harmony, growth, and innovation inspired by nature. By bringing people together, live events directly foster humanity, and the essence of humanity is inextricably linked to our natural world. Using the recently released “Nature of Space” whitepaper by IMEX we will use a neuroscience lens to explore the lessons from nature to help build an event that helps our attendees have a healthier, happier, and more meaningful event experience.

Learner Outcomes:

1. Discover how adapting nature’s best lessons can help create a successful event.

2. Explore ways to leverage lighting and environmental features to inspire innovation.

3. Discuss how patterns and shapes found in nature can accelerate and strengthen connections and community.
