Curious how furniture contributes to the meetovation concept of GMID Belgium?


During the upcoming Belgian GMID you will experience local inspiration, responsible thinking, active involvement and an effective physical setting. These are the five elements of meetovation. During the preparations of this top notch event we came across Fraai Projecten. We called Merel van Gijzel, accountmanager of Fraai Projecten with the question whether they could assist us in creating a physical setup complimenting the objectives of our meeting, and promoting active involvement of GMID16 participants. Merel replied by inviting me to Fraai’s warehouse in Raamsdonkveer, where we met a few days later.

Merel and I took a cup of coffee and discussed the objectives and programme of #GMID16. Based on the elements that #GMID16 is an event where sustainability, communication, interaction and the stimulation of conversation are central, we agreed that the physical setting for the main session room needs to enhance learning and needs to ensure that delegates can easily move around. For the lunch area, we’re going for an easy-going setup where people feel relaxed and comfortable – ready to have good conversations with their peers.

After this insightful meeting, Merel showed me around the warehouse of Fraai Projecten where I discovered inspiring and creative concepts. Two concepts I really likes: the cosy après ski bars, to the furniture used during last year’s Nuclear Security Summit in the World Forum in the Hague. It was interesting to meet with the different teams in the warehouse who were preparing the furniture for numerous projects: different EU meetings part of the Dutch Presidency, and film premieres sets for Kinepolis Antwerp.

After this dazzling tour I was impressed by the creativite minds at Fraai Projecten, and the stock they have available.  Register for #GMID16 to experience how furniture and an effective physical space can make a difference at your meetings!
