Experience Design for Events with Andrew O'Loughlin

As event providers we are in the business of giving experiences. Events are what our audiences buy, but experiences are what they want. As event designers our game has changed. We now create experiences and journeys, not just one off moments in time. Expectations are greater, and opportunities boundless. We know we need to evolve, to innovate. 'Experience Design' brings together innovative methods and a new mindset. Of intentionally creating an experiences that your audience will anticipate, participate in, and share. Positively influencing what they think, feel, do and say.

This session Andrew O'Loughlin will look at the art and the science behind Experience Design. Giving you the strategies and tools to provide to your audience what they want to feel, and what they want to do. You will walk away with the ability to creating engaging experiences, to get more people coming to your events, to provide the experience they desire, and the motivation to come back again.

Andrew introduced some of his thinking and work at the ETF Conference last year, and is now sharing more ways to bring this into your work.
