IACC Europe Knowledge Festival 2018

Educational Overview

Education to Fit Your Style of Learning!
In an effort to be more inclusive and sensitive to your individual learning needs, we’re presenting this year’s Knowledge Festival education sessions in three distinct learning formats. They are:

Keynote (listen and learn) - If you like to absorb information by listening to a speaker deliver a presentation, then the Saturday keynote session is perfect for you.

Interactive (learn from experts and question) -  A series of  educational Workshops and a Panel Debate around Third Party Engagement..

Peer-to-Peer (learn from each other) - These are participant-led sessions with the highest level of interactivity. If you want sessions where you learn from your peers through discussions and sharing of your own experiences, peer-to-peer is the way to go. A facilitator will drive the process, but not the content. On Sunday morning, there will be campfire sessions taking place for small groups on a range of subjects including social media, disruptive thinking, meeting technology and many more!

The Power of Networking (the opportunity for you to develop your professional network)—Those who invest in attending industry conferences and events, build up a rich network of industry colleagues who prove invaluable. Spend time with those who are as passionate about meetings and hospitality as you are and share great ideas that will help you make better decisions.

Valuable Experiences - it is no mistake that the IACC Knowledge Festival is taking place at Dolce Camporeal, Lisbon with an optional Study Tour on the Friday and conference finish time after lunch Sunday for you to allow time to take in some portuguese culture.
