[video] Extending your conference and engaging your audience

August 9, 2009

in Ideas

Following his series of videos started here, Robin Good further explores what in his opinion is going to be the  future of conferences: engaged audiences and extended events.

Robin pitches two ideas for events to move from the classic (and rather obsolete) top-town broadcasting model, where the attendees are just a passive observer, to a participative model, where the audience is engaged and co-creates the conference (eg. by deciding which topics or speakers are more relevant). He calls these events “extended”, and the physical meeting is just a climax point someway in the center of the event’s time-line.
