Next week Monday, May 11 would have meant either a travel day invested to come to Frankfurt for IMEX or joining some lectures in EduMonday – that means you had the day planned anyway and can use it now to join the virtual EduMonday Live!

Because EduMonday now comes live to you – a whole list of evolutionary and engaging sessions are presented in virtual formate by PlanetIMEX.

For you! For free! You just have to register and pick the ones that suit you best! Watch out for the schedule, so sessions don’t overlap (the system does not accept this)

My recommendations are “The future of events – Three scenarios and five survival strategies” at 1 pm by Rohit Talwar and how to organize “Events as accelerators for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)” at 2pm by Mariela McIlwraith VP Sustainability and Industry Advancement, Events Industry Council

Select those aspects which are the most relevant to y o u r  business!

Here is the introduction to PlanetIMEX and EduMonday Live from IMEX Group and PlanetIMEX team:

PlanetIMEX is FREE to the world. It’s a place to explore, reconnect, talk future business and continue learning in the company of friends and colleagues from the global business events community. Open to all, there’s no need to register for PlanetIMEX.

Education Island – one of three islands on PlanetIMEX – offers a programme with something for everyone that’s tailor-made for virtual learning and interaction.
