Chair:  Mona Hidayet, Executive Director, Clients & Products, Advantage CS

What new and interesting things are happening in conferences and meetings? How does our increasing awareness of our carbon footprint change the way we do meetings? How do we, as conveners and organizers, make sure that when we bring people together we know why we do it, and maximise those things that being physically together brings and think imaginatively about how to convene a community without physical meetings.
