Multihub meetings are the next big thing, according to Maarten Vanneste, CMM, founder of The Fresh Conference and Meeting Design Institute in Belgium (that’s the back of his head you’re seeing). The idea is “one man and a suitcase,” and Vanneste has created a team of experts who can deliver a co-meeting that takes place simultaneously in say, Buenos Aires, Argentina; London; and Shanghai. Multihub video and audio are in real time so someone in London can host the meeting; attendees in Buenos Aires and Shanghai can see the presentation; and everyone can ask questions and vote with results delivered instantly.
