Why do we need meetings / conferences? | 為什麼需要開會?

As the old saying, two birds never sing the same song, so a meeting in any kinds comes along to close the gap. Yet, in this digital era, many tools, such as phone, emails or messenger, seem to replace the functions of face-to-face conference. So, why do we still need a conference? Even though the reasons on the internet are obvious and easy to obtain, what actually convinces you to join one may be “my boss tells me to do”!

For long, as a conference organizer, we find the conference is a gift for all attendance, just like to join a party. Here are our findings.

1.    Warm Talk that expand your social network
People easily get closer to talk in person because it starts with a hand-shake. By this, human kind somehow would become more understanding and familiar rather than speaking on the phone. Just like all the arguments about online social networking, get out and meet people are always the key to sustain the relationship in the long run.

2.    Efficient Communication with  groups
You probably doubt this point but in the accordance to Albert Mehrabian, only 7% of communication is spoken and the rest are made of tone (38%) and body language (55%). It is truer when engaging a big group. So, the time you spending on transportation will pay back on your discussion time, which can be tripled by talking on phone or via emails and no conclusion.

communication . So everyone needs to understand this so we don't have problems!!!!! It actually works people !

3.    Have Fun
        Yes, having fun in this occasion. This is the best chance to party with people in the same field. Most of conferences has its purpose and objective and most participants are serious for it. Yet, who earn more in the conference are usually those who come in a party manner. We are not saying to get drunk but to make friends and relax yourself. In this manner, you would smile more (that attracts more opportunities) and have a clear mind to learn from the conference.
