When it comes to “Creating the New Connectivity” through hybrid events, it
seems that meeting organizers and attendees may hail from two entirely different
planets. Indeed, the phrase “going hybrid” is becoming increasingly common in
the meetings & events industry, but meeting professionals and attendees
typically interpret it differently, with conflicting meanings, criteria and
expectations. To complicate matters, there hasn’t been a data-driven roadmap for
the successful development of hybrid-event strategies, goals and objectives --
until now. The MPI Foundation, in partnership with Mediasite Events, recently
completed the most comprehensive study ever conducted on hybrid meetings. This
session will reveal key insights gained from this study; and help participants
understand how the most common obstacles to executing a successful hybrid event
are often the result of differing expectations between organizer and
- Use techniques that organizers and attendees agree make for remarkable hybrid events
- Gain insights on types of technology, engagement and event formats that work best for hybrid meetings
- Identify a skill set that should be assembled and built into partnerships to ensure hybrid event success

About CEU Credits
Many of the sessions at WEC 2012 will provide CEUs. Some exceptions are Flash Point, and a few of the interactive, peer-to-peer learning sessions designed to get people talking. MPI is working with CIC to make sure the most up-to-date and accurate information about what sessions are eligible according to the blueprint sections of the CMP exam. The maximum amount of CEU's you can receive at WEC 2012 is 12.5, including 1 session per time slot and both General Sessions. All sessions that are eligible for CEU credit are notated on the website.
CEU’s are provided at a conversion rate of .1 to 1 contact hour of learning – so a 1.5 hour session would be .15 CEU’s. Something that we started this year, since the CIC now uses contact hours as their measurement, is recording BOTH in the MPI member transcripts that can be accessed on the website through the Career Development tab once you are signed in as a member.
