Conferences, congresses and other meeting formats need to be scrutinized more frequently. Conference visits require time, money and effort, and often they fail to meet the participants’ needs and expectations. Although they hope for personal encounters, inspiring insights and profound learning experiences, participants wind up in meetings that follow tried and tested formulas; such meetings rarely focus on impact goals or communication concepts, not to mention the participants’ needs. In Participant Experience Design - How do we create meetings which move people more deeply? Felix Rundel presents basic attitudes and tools that can provide fresh approaches for planning and managing conferences. The focus is on the principles of meeting design, an orientation towards making events effective and a deeper engagement with the human aspect of each individual participant.
