Live from IMEX America in Las Vegas, host Brandt Krueger moderates an onsite roundtable discussion with top meeting innovators Tahira Endean, event producer of BC Innovation Council; Aaron Kaufman, president of Fifth Elements Events; and Glenn Thayer, a professional conference moderator, to look at the past, present, and future of events. The group talks about the appetite for taking risks at association events, the need to refocus on the breakout session, whether the rise of the TED Talk-style short sessions is actually a good thing, the future of innovation or managed disruption, and more.
