Millennial-age meeting planners and attendees have been pushing for more modern meeting design and advanced event technology for years, but the meetings industry, at large, has been slow to implement changes because industry leaders don’t take young meeting planners seriously enough.
Millennial planners want to emphasize that it is more of a mindset than an age group. They want to do something to make a difference in the world, both professionally and personally. Whereas boomers are loyal to brands, millennials are loyal to meeting industry partners-being more flexible, more creative, and always looking for the greatest and newest and not the tried and true.
