  1. Destinations must give life meaning
    2023 has put further emphasis on the value of experiences over material possessions. With increased reliance on technology, there's a growing trend towards immersive and transformative group experiences in unique settings. Align your offerings with visitors' individual aspirations, providing a meaningful purpose for their journey beyond the comforts of home.

  2. True Immersion
    Our gravitation towards meaningful experiences reflects a deep desire for intimacy and connection. Immersive experience that manage to surpass traditional media, will effectively enhance learning, social bonds, and well-being of your core audience. True immersion, engaging all senses and involving participants fully, creates transformative magic, leaving a lasting impression beyond social media.

Applying it to event planning and marketing involves holistic approaches that actively contribute to well-being beyond sustainability. Emphasizing regenerative practices captivates purpose-driven consumers aligned with brands committed to positive transformation. 

  4. AI - The world is now different
    Public AI tools like ChatGPT have reshaped our AI interactions, sparking conversations on ethical use, while also empowering users, and refining our understanding of AI's role. Event planners now use AI to personalize experiences, leveraging data to adapt seamlessly to attendee preferences throughout their journey. Success lies in a nuanced understanding of customer needs and preferences, knowing when human interaction is preferred and when to seamlessly integrate AI.

  5. Data & analytics drive decision-making
    In an increasingly complex world, data and analytics have become vital in corporate event planning, acknowledging that each attendee can impact your event and brand. By understanding and integrating the behaviors, thoughts, and perspectives of clients, customers, and sponsors, a nuanced 'both/and' approach can be adopted, leaving behind the limited 'either/or' mindset. Engaging all stakeholders through co-creation ensures events that truly embody the brand's essence, elevating its value for attendees.
