I’ve attended and presented at multiple state, national, and global conferences from all over the world. Creating an experience for attendees is a lot harder than creating an app or a widget. You have to make an atmosphere that both excites and inspires those that attend. The best events I’ve ever been a part of include each of the following elements:
1. An opportunity to learn in a large group setting.
2. An opportunity to collaborate with a small group or team.
3. Time to reflect and participate as an individual.
Having these components along with an electric atmosphere make for memorable events that attendees will talk about what they learned for years to come.
