Breakout #3 - The Future of Design Experience

As we look towards the future, experiential design means more than ever, as attendees determine whether they want to join you again in person, spend the money on travel, and allocate time to your event. Ensuring you are achieving company KPIs, attendees expectations, and continuing to grow strong supplier relations are key to the success. Join Sammy Caban for a conversation regarding the science behind experiential design, while we review case studies, and share best practices to improve stakeholder experiences. Ask questions to help you design your future experiences in a collaborative way, and be prepared to rethink your events’ design strategy to deliver your best events yet.
