For some, conferences are a great idea, an opportunity to get out of the office – a room jam-packed full of like-minded (and not so like-minded) people, coming together with a common goal to share ideas and get motivated. For others, it’s a schlepp – it means time away from home and for the most part it’s laborious and plain boring. For this reason, when it comes to planning a conference these days, one has to think out of the box, be original and look outside the norm - come up with enticing and engaging ideas to bring delegates an experience they won’t forget.
