Convening Leaders: PCMA Chicago

Workspring is thrilled to be part of such an innovative event right here in Chicago. The Professional Convention Management Association created a gathering for related professionals such as marketing managers, tradeshow/exhibit managers, facility operations managers and C-level professionals. Attendees benefit from the premier education and networking event of the year that allows you to network with industry leaders, discover innovative solutions to save time and money, enhance your performance, and explore how world issues impact the meetings industry.

Convening Leaders provides cutting-edge education and real networking opportunities for all meetings industry professionals, including planners, suppliers, faculty and students.

As mentioned earlier, Workspring is taking full advantage of this event by making use of the workshops, but also by conducting one of the workshops. Sudhakar Lahade, from Steelcase Inc. has done several creative experiment activities at Workspring. At Convening Leaders, Sudhakar did a session on Designing for Active Learning and Impromptu Collaboration. There, Sudhakar discussed a vast body of research and implementation to further explore design principles for creating compelling experiences that can be applied in designing engaging, collaborative and experience rich environments for events and conferences.
