The unconference

Conference planning outside of the box.  Although I think these ideas work better for small meetings (and perhaps even better for conference planning meetings), it's always good to examine what we do.  This comes from Jonathan Vetner writing in

Planning the Unconference - Meetings And Conventions
The structure of most educational meetings is almost exactly the same: lectures and panel discussions, theater- and classroom-style seating, and almost zero audience participation. Connections happen by chance, and unless attendees are extroverted and learn by sitting and listening, they come away with very little.

However, as a growing number of forward-thinking meeting professionals are proving, conferences can be better. "Unconferences" are formats that make meetings interactive, engaging and a whole lot more fun. Although unconferences have been around for years, the formats are being implemented more frequently than ever.
