Discover how empathy interviews can be used to better understand your participants so you can design the standout event of the year. Empathy is the cornerstone of Design Thinking. Through techniques like In-Depth Interviews (IDI) we can learn how participants feel about the events we are designing so we can better connect our events to potential participants, sponsors, and vendors.
