In order to move beyond the mediocre state of affairs we see at most conferences today, the event industry needs to learn one simple principle… “Step back to speed up!”

The go go go mentality of the event game is good for getting things done. In fact it has made the industry what it is today. Bigger and better venues, with better food and lighting… the strength of events lies in organizing them.
But what if getting things done is not good enough anymore? What if the attendance of big events drop, simply because we’ve done them, seen them and have 200 t-shirts and lanyards to show for it. What can you do to re-imagine and innovate the concept of events by spending a little bit more time to think about what they actually are intended for.

This is what the Event Design handbook puts at the center of its own promise. How do you systematically innovate your event? What steps do you take to ask they right questions to the right people? And how can you learn from looking back, forward, in the present and across the border of your own doing. That is the challenge.

We get the right people together to collaborate on innovative concepts and teach them how to translate these new concepts to amazing new experiences!
