  2. 2. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Founder of Lift conference (exit in 2012) Organizer, curator, speaker, moderator, emcee Now experimenting with smaller formats with www.200ideas.com
  3. 3. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Working on a book called Come Together that lead me to interview the people running the world’s top events. www.come-together.co
  4. 4. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Innovative events? What is innovation at events?
  5. 5. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 SpotMe Is it apps like SpotMe?
  6. 6. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Second Life Is it virtual events?
  7. 7. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Facebook Oculus VR Is it being together despite the physical distance?
  8. 8. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 What is a meeting? First: let’s define a couple of things, starting with the word “meeting”. What is a meeting?
  9. 9. meeting event symposium congress forum festival sports museum concert school airport store For the sake of this presentation, meeting = event = symposium = place where people gather to interact.
  10. 10. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 What is innovation? Another word in need of definition: innovation
  11. 11. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Is innovation an app? If you ask anyone inside a large organization to come up with an innovative idea, chances are they will say “my idea is an app that…”
  12. 12. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 For every technological solution (in this case: a drone for exam surveillance)…
  13. 13. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Source: Le Figaro … there is a low cost alternative, like these anti-cheating hats from Thailand.
  14. 14. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017Source: Reddit In the West we install ticket dispensers to manage queues, but some people are smarter than that.
  15. 15. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Sometimes innovation is to remove technology, like Balestrafic did asking drivers to stop depending on GPS technology. Everyone has GPS, so getting rid of it is the only way to stand out!
  16. 16. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Supermarket Amazon 1995 - 2015 Digitization of retail And the future is a hybrid of online and offline. It started with “old” players having to learn the digital world.
  17. 17. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 But now Amazon is opening physical stores.
  18. 18. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Source:Twitter …and buying supermarket chains. Why?
  19. 19. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Supermarket Amazon 1995 - 2015 2015 - ? Future = hybrid digital & offline Digitization of retailBecause the future is a hybrid of online and offline! Customers won’t make a difference between online and offline in a few years. They just want to interact with you and have a consistent experience regardless of the channel.
  20. 20. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 The ten types of innovation There are at least 10 times of innovation
  21. 21. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 And by the way, we haven’t invented much… Crowdfunding?
  22. 22. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 You’ve seen it in action at the church, since 2000 years…
  23. 23. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 New tools Do what people need (empathy) New assets (reputation, attention, network) Find the most effective way to do things (common sense) Changing vs not changing New opportunities, new challenges, new competitors Innovate constantly (something we are RE- discovering) What changed What hasn’t changed So remember some things change, but a lot hasn’t changed too!
  24. 24. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 How do events work in the 21st century? Now let’s look at how events work in this day and age
  25. 25. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 $3+M Why does Obama charge $3M to speak at some events….
  26. 26. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 $0 …and TED doesn’t have to pay Bill Gates?
  27. 27. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 $200+M The PSG pays $200M+ for the services of Neymar…
  28. 28. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 $0 …but the Olympics get Federer for free.
  29. 29. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Why? What’s happening there?
  30. 30. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Because events are platforms trading today’s key assets
  31. 31. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Receives: Money Brings: Information Attention Identity By his play Neymar brings information (content) that can be sold. He also brings the attention of his fans, and the PSG becomes “Neymar’s team”.
  32. 32. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Receives: Experience Attention Identity Brings: Information Identity The players don’t need money because they receive a unique experience, play on the world’s biggest stage (attention) and become “Olympians” which changes their identity and boosts their reputation.
  33. 33. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Athlete Sponsor Television Federation Olympics Gives: 
 Information Receives: 
 Attention, Experience, Identity Gives: Money Receives: Attention, Identity Gives: Money, Attention Receives: Information Receives: 
 Money, attention This is how the Olympic games work: they trade different assets (currencies) with their key stakeholders (only 4 shown here for simplification)
  34. 34. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Athlete Sponsor Television Federation Olympics Attention Information MoneyM oney Identity Here is a simplified view of the exchanges that are happening.
  35. 35. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Money Information Attention Relationships Experience Identity What you get from selling services and products. It’s your business model! Everybody’s money is interchangeable. Only way to make a difference with money is via quantity. Content, data, insights, reports, stories, videos, images, text, etc Not to be confused with visibility. Showing something is ont thing, having people pay attention to it is another! Not to be confused with connections. 4 steps: awareness, attention, connection, relationships. Relationship is when you can withstand conflict, and when you can ask people to engage in time consuming tasks. Something that appeals to all senses, important because it can’t be replicated by technology. Reputation, legitimacy, something you trade by endorsing or being endorsed (for example) 21st century key assets What are these key assets?
  36. 36. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 Money Service Information Attention Relationships Experience Identity We tend to think we trade only this… …while we have other “currencies” to trade with people We need to go beyond the money vs service logic
  37. 37. hello@laurenthaug.com © 2017 How platforms work • They gather currencies / assets and trade them with their key stakeholders. All types of assets get exchanged even if they don’t correspond. For example: money is traded for attention and reputation. • They setup unique, fair, constantly evolving, mutually beneficial exchanges with their stakeholders. • As they assets grow thanks to improving exchanges, they initiate a virtuous circle that increases their impact.
