8 Words Heard: European Meetings & Events Conference 2016

2. Hang

At EMEC, I experienced a hang (pronounced han) firsthand. Although I did hang out and hang around, this hang was a musical instrument that appears ancient (and a bit like a UFO), but was invented in 2000 by a Swiss musician. Accomplished Dutch musician Joshua Sampson brought the instrument to EMEC to demonstrate the power of incorporating music into events. Music relaxes, calms and allows people to bond, he says—especially when you bring 200 instruments to one conference for everyone to play together as Sampson did.
