Events and conferences are being postponed or are cancelled completely. SARS-CoV-2 and climate change concerns are drastically reducing our options. How will we keep meeting, talking, learning and innovating? How can we swiftly respond to these new realities? How will we effectively and enjoyably work from home, meet remotely, join virtual conferences and collaborate digitally? The technology is getting there but so far many of us haven’t really considered it. Until now.
Responding to the sudden future that presents itself so vehemently, Futurist and Keynote Speaker Gerd Leonhard and his company, The Futures Agency, are now presenting an entirely new conference experience that can bridge the gap between attending real-life events or simply staying at home, binging on movies and online TV shows. TheConference.Digital concept is designed to meet the needs of conference planners, event managers and speaker agencies, here and now.
In the past, most online events and webinars have been a casual and often low-budget affair, met with little excitement by most professionals – this is about to change! It is now a certainty that more and more professionals will work remotely or from their homes in the near future. Thus, TheConference.Digital aims to provide a new, exciting and immersive environment that is conducive to human experiences, serendipity, discovery and co-creation. The goal is to offer a content and conversation-driven platform that supplements and even expands real-life experiences online, while making it infinitely easier and less costly to participate.
Whether moving online as a contingency or exploring new, custom-designed digital experiences, Gerd Leonhard’s The Futures Agency has the people, the content, the accumulated insights, the proven network, and the technological expertise to help its clients leapfrog into state-of-the-art digital events.
Digital conferencing can also add a new life to event content, as critical learnings and insights build up into a unique library of knowledge, illumination, motivation and imagination, while reducing travel and health risks, lost productivity and CO2 output.
“As we move towards a more resilient planet both ecologically and in terms of public health, digital conferencing will rapidly become the new normal.” (Gerd Leonhard, CEO)
