This is not your father's traditional conference education session. It's an experimental meetings laboratory. You'll rotate through four participatory exercises with your peers discussing space grammar: actions, attitudes, places and properties. Discover how to put them all together to create a unique meeting experience. Explore how to shift from a logistics focus to one of designing innovative and engaging experiences. Walk away inspired to bring these buzzwords to life at your next event.

After attending this session, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe firsthand how design can be a barrier or facilitator to the attendee experience.
  • Identify ways to move from education sessions that are expert-centric to participant-centric.
  • Practice two behaviors that will help you become more innovative.
