Event Planners Talk e-Conference

About this Event

The Event Planners Talk conference is going digital. We’ll be bringing you the most timely content, combined with a unique destination experience to the comfort of your office or home, easily accessible on your mobile.

We’re excited to introduce you to our first international e-conference.

What is an e-conference? First, let’s begin with what an Event Planners Talk is. This microlearning platform was founded in 2014 as a weekly #eventprofstalk Twitter chat to discuss event industry-related topics and enable industry professionals to reunite online for personal development and networking.

Since its inception, these online encounters have been sustained to enable subsequent business relationships to develop. As the Twitter chat grew, so did the desire to facilitate more opportunities for face-to-face knowledge sharing between event professionals.

Recognising that there is an additional need to facilitate face-to-face interaction and networking, the Event Planners Talk event series was launched in 2015 to enhance the online experience and extend the event life cycle.

Inspired by the success of these regional events and an ambition to offer increased value to our online and offline community, we wished to expand the current format to a multi-day business festival, providing a platform that delivers tangible learning outcomes, fosters and improves industry standards and delivers a high return on investment (ROI) for our attendees. 

What is an e-conference?

We now live in unprecedented times, and the events industry is experiencing high uncertainty. As a result, we have decided to host the multi-day event entirely online and live stream it from Bern, Switzerland.

From 27–29 August, we will be live streaming the sessions from various venues in Bern across Instagram Live and YouTube. You can also actively engage with and contribute to the discussions in the lead up to the event in the exclusive networking group on Slack.

During these challenging times for individuals and businesses, we’ve chosen topics of personal development with a strong business focus to help you navigate through the uncertainly and become a stronger leader.

At the Event Planners Talk events, we are all about practicality and tangible outcomes. By carefully selecting topics and choosing the best speakers who can deliver the message, by the end of the online event, you’ll have a steep learning curve that will help you grow your business and meet like-minded event professionals in the process.

Over the years, since the inception of the Event Planners Talk, we’ve seen relationships and businesses form when event professionals from around the world connect on our platform. The multi-day online event will help you amplify these opportunities.

Recognising the shifts in the way we work, learn, network and conduct business, we’ve designed the programme so that you can develop your schedule and join the live sessions when it is convenient for you. You can be in control of your time, design your own programme and choose the way you prefer to consume your content because all that content will also be available to watch and read about later on demand. Further, you will be introduced to a destination experience of the beautiful city of Bern and get to know iconic venues in the city and the people who represent them, helping you plan your future events.

We look forward to meeting you! You can sign up for the latest news and updates about the upcoming programme and join the networking group.
