The Hackathon:

What is a Hackathon?

Hackathons are quickly becoming the most talked about conference experiences, as they deliver on two key attendee expectations for events: Learning and Networking. In this session, Yurii Land with Maritz Global Events will share proven techniques for tapping the collective wisdom at your event/chapter and setting the framework for ideation by encouraging participants to engage in a diverse set of perspectives and create potential solutions for all. 

From creating the right mindset and environment for more fruitful ideation, to engaging a diverse set of perspectives in constructive debate and creating a new, exciting sponsorship opportunity, Yurii will cover the full hackathon spectrum. 

Participants will emerge from this session with tools and tips to design hackathons that reveal breakthrough ideas to address industry challenges, while igniting cross-disciplinary, collaborative conversations that advance learning and nurture relationships. 

While hackathons typically span a day or more, participants will experience a mini-version where they will flesh out new ideas with peers, but experience this interactive model first-hand. 

 Learner Outcomes: 

– Understand how key components can be orchestrated to create a richer hackathon experience
– Develop two techniques that can be applied to jump start, enhance and accelerate team hacking exchanges
– Identify the essentials for designing a successful hackathon experience
