Transform Your Tired Conference; Create Something Amazing
Little has changed in the last 50 years when it comes to in-person event formats. You know the usual drill: keynote, sessions in large rooms, and an exhibit hall.
But what attendees want has dramatically changed. Several surveys have revealed that almost 90% of attendees say an event’s greatest value lies in elements other than those traditional elements – the elements that are often an afterthought or “nice to haves.”
So, what is it that attendees want? And how can you restructure your events to provide more value and create space for the elements that attendees want most?
Join Lee Gimpel, Founder and CEO of Better Meetings, Teri Carden, CEO & Founder of 100Reviews & Non Dues-a-Palooza, and Matrix Group CEO & Chief Troublemaker Joanna Pineda for a lively, idea-packed session on ways you can make your meetings better, no matter the scale, to provide more value and drive more connection and engagement.
