Creative Thinking – The Art of Breaking Routines

The theme “Creative Thinking – The Art of Breaking Routines” will determine the content of the educational programme on November 23.

As the world changes, new technologies and practices are introduced. What we learned yesterday usually becomes obsolete by the time we’re ready to start applying it to our job. It is a life-long learning process and we have to focus on developing skills that are crucial for adapting to this ever-changing reality.

At Bea World Festival we want participants and experts to meet and to find ways to look at and solve problems from a different perspective, avoiding orthodox solutions and thinking outside the box. We call this “Creative Thinking – The Art of Breaking Routines“ and it is not about coming up with original ideas, but about making new connections between existing ideas.

During Bea World Festival you can explore new insights, unconventional solutions, engaging technology, and communities helping you to connect ideas to innovate your events.

Bea World offers you excellent networking opportunities and, thanks to the easy to use online seating solution NetworkTables, grants you the possibility to meet the right people at the right tables, which is what you want at events.

  • Star Talk & Lunch: before the event, NetworkTables will let you select a lunch table according to a topic that will be discussed at this table and will show you who is already seated at which table. You will be able to get in touch with other participants and take a seat at the table you prefer.
  • Pick a Brain. 1-on-1 Meetings with Experts: would you like to discuss your specific challenge with one or more experts? The NetworkTables algorithm will generate for you a personalized time-schedule to meet our speakers and jury members during 15-minute 1-on-1s.
  • 1-on-1 Meetings with Exhibitors: if you wish to learn more about the products and services offered by our partners, you can request 10-minute 1-on-1 meetings during the coffee breaks.
