November Events Trend: Campfire Sessions
ESPA’s Executive Director Lynn McCullough visited IMEX in October and experienced neat formats for event interaction and sessions. During Campfire sessions, attendees gathered around a facilitator in small groups using seats that ranged from stools to soft seating. No tables needed. No slides. The speaker is not always right – the idea is interactive discussion around a designated topic in a relaxed setting. Cool custom printed cardboard stools add an interactive, fun component – the stools can be assembled by each participant as step one of the campfire chat (visit www.festivalchairs.com/en). Campfire sessions were held in exhibitor booths (pictured on the link below is Thorben Grosser, Eventmobi leading one) and also in IMEX’s Inspiration Hub, sponsored by Maritz Global Events.
