Session 2: Getting to Know You: Games and Activities that Build Trust and Relationships Among Attendees

With more and more Millennial and Gen Z attendees at meetings, their preferences and expectations must be accounted for. One big expectation they have for in-person events is to build lasting connections with fellow attendees; otherwise, they’ll ask why the event wasn’t simply done virtually. Therefore, planners must create opportunities for attendees to interact in stimulating ways during time spent outside the formal meeting sessions.

Longtime event-industry veterans Walt Galanty and Lin Guba use a variety of activities to get attendees to open up, connect, and bond during a business event.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How to broaden the way you think about creating interpersonal connections among your attendees.
  • How to leverage the host facility and local destination to create fun and memorable experiences.
  • How to satisfy the objectives of both your attendees and the meeting host.
