Crossing borders at IENE 2018
International multi-day conference
In the iconic building, the Evoluon, in Eindhoven, over 350 professionals in the field of ecology and transport infrastructure gathered from 10 – 14 September for IENE 2018. For over a year, PINO worked intensively together with the Organising Committee to develop and prepare the event concept, programme, inivitation and communication to participants and the logistical and facilities organization. With more than 38 nationalities represented, the partners (Rijkswaterstaat, ProRail, Province of Noord-Holland, Province of Noord-Brabant and the Flemish government) look back on a particularly successful conference.
Communication and organization
In order to get communication going in the run-up to the conference, PINO used various means. In addition to keeping the conference website up-to-date, PINO also produced a monthly newsletter for the entire IENE network. The deployment of an advanced ‘Abstract Submission Tool’ was also part of PINO’s services. The use of the Networkapp before and during the conference was an important sustainable innovation within the IENE network. With over 250 active users this medium was a great success.
