Comments on: The implicit ground rules of traditional conferences Unconferences, peer conferences, participant-driven events, and facilitation Sat, 21 Mar 2020 02:12:24 +0000 hourly 1 By: Adrian Segar Tue, 02 Aug 2011 01:17:00 +0000 In reply to William.

William, I love it. Perhaps we should have a competition to see how many of these rules we can “break”. Please report back on how your conference organizers respond, and what your experience was. I think many will be interested.

I plan to publish my objectives, targets and budget, my marketing USPS on line. And open source all of my decisions regarding content.

Alongside that of course will be many of the innovative sessions we’ve spoken about.

One other rule we want to break is that “you can choose to attend te conference”. You have to apply to pay to attend this one.

Will be interesting to see how many rules one conference for organisers can break. Hopefully it will inspire some of our lack listed representational bodies to do something outside of the old implicit conference boarders.
