The New Conference Choreography

Posted on January 02, 2007

By Gail Rae

Remember the days when conference planners feared the introduction of teleconferencing, and then video-teleconferencing? Well, our former competition has become our new friends and has helped us to turn a corner in conference design. The easy accessibility of information transfer allows conference designers to increase the focus on stimulating the creative energy that can happen when people come face-to-face. No longer in the business of information downloads, conference designers can begin where technology-based forms of information transfer leave off. Using high involvement methods, targeted skills practice, networked conversations, and facilitated problem-solving methods, participants and their sponsors get to participate fully in a high involvement learning opportunity that is great value for money. This keeps conferences focused on what they’re good for – getting people together in intensely focused, highly engaging environments!
