Results from a newly released survey take a deep dive into attendee attitudes and behaviors. The PCMA Foundation partnered with Steelcase Event experiences to capture in the moment feedback and observations from attendees at their Convening Leaders 2019 conference in Pittsburgh. Steelcase conducted hundreds of on-site interviews during the event and took notes about the ways that attendees navigated the environment. The report, titled “5,000 People, 5,000 Personal Journeys” was released at the PCMA Education Conference in Los Angeles. While some of the findings are specific to Convening Leaders, many of the insights can be applied more broadly to other face-to-face gatherings. The report offers detail on the impact of conference scheduling, sponsorship relationships and networking for attendees.
