Meetings Of Tomorrow Are Here Today in Germany
If you would like to see what the future of meetings content, session formats and learning success could look like, the Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) at the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL) provides a high def, realtime view.
Attracting over 4,800 participants from 70 countries, the event has dissolved the norms of lectures and presentations, turning them into instantaneous and interactive exchanges, and morphing analog content into dynamic digital formats.
The centerpiece of the annual event was provided by 90 large screen, high-def medical procedure transmissions beamed live from over 13 hospitals in Singapore, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Japan, Brazil, Leipzig and more.
These broadcasts are made collaborative through accompanying expert panels in Leipzig, as participants get first hand views of cases and treatment approaches and can conduct realtime Q&A with faculty and physicians.
In addition to blurring the lines of traditional content delivery, physical meeting layout is ground breaking as well:
There are no rigid fixtures or soundproofed, closed lecture spaces. Participants are free to move between sessions, digital posters and exhibition areas as they wish, when they wish. Instead of walls or hallways, visual and auditory features and different color schemes demarcate the various event areas.
The results? The format simply works. The event has grown from under 1,000 to almost 5,000 participants since it was launched in 2006, with attendees leaving with a truly innovative, lasting experience as well as new connections and information.
