Creating Epic Conferences

Download to read offline

The challenge of many conferences today is that they are like local, indigenous populations using their native tongue trying to talk to foreign immigrants. The traditional conference experience is out of touch, disconnected and using an outdated model. It fails to connect with today’s generations.

Well, it’s time your conference went EPIC!

Today’s culture wants EPIC communications and experiences. For today’s conferences to succeed, they must step outside of traditional thinking. They have to create new models and experiences that use a four-step EPIC transformational process.

After attending this session, the participant will be able to:

1. Identify the four-step EPIC model for conferences and events.
2. Discuss how conferences can create experiential events.
3. List ways to make conferences more participatory that increase learning and retention.
