Session formats

Open space / un-conference style

Open space (aka un-conference) sessions are participants proposed and led session which attract the right people to learn from the amazing conversations.

Unlike traditional start-to-finish speaker-led events, in open space events it is designed to help you meet peers, find those with shared interests, exchange experience and fulfill your own learning needs.

Open space events work by:


  • People showing up with the right mix of attitude for sharing and expertise on the topics
  • Participants setting the agenda at the start of the event by proposing topics they wish to discuss.
  • Participants quickly discover who is interested in the same topics and these topics are assigned to a time and space to have the discussion
  • The repeat for other topics and add new agenda topics every few rounds.
