Your views matter!


How are meetings impacted by different elements of meeting methodology and technology? And how do such elements affect knowledge transfer, learning progress, networking and the experience value for different types of participants? These are the questions which are asked by the innovation alliance »Future Meeting Space« as it continues its research. To investigate, the association is now conducting the following survey among participants, which should take you about 10-15 minutes to complete. Thank you very much for helping us in this way.


Which type of participant are you?

By completing the questionnaire, you will support the research project, and we will also send you a personal analysis via an immediate feedback function. It means that, even at this early stage, you can compare yourself with a continually growing database of participants and look at the areas where you differ.


Who can take part?

The survey is intended for participants of events (meetings and conferences), and its questions cover demographic data, individual patterns of behaviour, an event you have visited, the methods and media that were used at that event and also central success factors such as knowledge transfer and interaction. It will close on 17 May 2018. Further details of the project can be found at


About the innovation alliance »Future Meeting Space«

For many years Germany has held a leading position as a major location for conferences and conventions. To make sure this continues, the German Convention Bureau (GCB), the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC) and the Fraunhofer-Institute for Industrial Engineering (IAO) have initiated an innovation network called »Future Meeting Space«. The aim of the network is to analyse developments in the meetings industry and, on that basis, recommend possible action that can be taken by the MICE sector.
