The Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) will experiment with a live case study in content delivery at the PCMA Education Conference in Toronto, 22-25 June 2014, developed in collaboration with event management agency George P Johnson.
The first day of the conference will follow a more traditional design format with general session speakers and breakout sessions, while the second day will see PCMA unleash its new open-spaced learning format.
One room will play host to the entire conference day, with nine separate areas focused on a variety of topics and interests where attendees will choose what content matters most to them. PCMA says it is experimenting with this new format to provide additional networking opportunities as well as deliver a more collaborative way to learn.
“PCMA is known throughout the industry for taking risks,” said Deborah Sexton, President and CEO of PCMA. “By exploring and testing the success of this new education format and then enabling members to use the design for their own events, we believe the risk is well worth the reward.”
Speakers at the conference include Heidi Grant Halvorson, who will provide attendees with strategies to help accomplish your goals; Josh Linkner will be showing attendees how to jump start creativity; and Luke Williams will be educating attendees on applying disruption to their won careers.
