2015 Event Innovation Survey
HIP 2015 Event Innovation Survey

Meetings and events are an art, requiring continuous advancement to create experiences that effectively connect people, businesses and ideas to drive progress. Challenging the status quo and driving continuous innovation are founding principles for HIP Network and Greenview, both committed to being a resource for planners and suppliers when it comes to planning tomorrow’s events. We undertook this survey to help understand what today’s planners consider innovative. We have seen pockets of innovation sprouting up worldwide across thousands of meetings, and wanted to help spread this progressive spirit. We also wanted to explore the perceptions between what is considered “green” in relation to what is considered innovative.
