1. Secret events
These type of events are becoming increasingly popular as Secrets have always attracted people.
The hush-hush instructions and the unique, undisclosed locations intensify people’s curiosity.
To heighten the expectations, the venue is usually revealed just a few hours before the event starts.
2. Lost Lectures
an Underground series of enchanting talks delivered in mysterious hideouts. This concept re-imagines the classic lecture-style of presentations. The organizers push the boundaries to create immersive worlds for the attendees. The world-class speakers take them on a thought-provoking journey.
3. Secret Cinema

To create a unique atmosphere, the venue always matches the film scenery. Everything is top secret until the very last moment. Those who sign up, receive only vague advance cues about the film, dress code, and a meeting point.
4. Silent conferences
Have you heard about silent discos where people equipped with wireless headphones dance to what the DJ is playing in their ears?
The popularity of these events motivated conference organizers to start incorporating wireless headphone technology into their events. The reason is simple. It solves some of their most common problems such as lack of breakout space, Not enough time, Disruptions and Low engagement rate
5. Lunch clubbing
How about a dance rave instead of an ordinary lunch at a local bistro?
This one-hour event is all about getting in as much dancing as possible.
The dancing is a great bonding experience for the attendees. There is no alcohol involved but the entrance fee will get you a sandwich.
6. Dedicated Q&A tracks at Startup Grind
Who wouldn’t want to hear their question addressed by a successful CEO or an influential thought-leader? However, packed conference agendas rarely leave enough time for Q&A. Delegates submit their questions through the designated website, as a result the speakers are able to elaborate on their topics.
7. Participant-driven open space
This is used by giving the attendees the full power to co-create the agenda at the start?

8. Light-speed presentations
This involves a series of usually 8-15 short stand-up talks. These are often “elevator pitches” by the creatives, students, researchers or startups who want to spread their new innovative ideas.
This format is perfect for sharing quick knowledge and inspiring ideas in a short space of time. This turned out to be an invaluable bonding experience for the participants. By sharing their own problems with their peers, they realized they’re not alone in facing certain hurdles.
9. Campfire Sessions
This is an excellent format for peer-to-peer learning and making new connections. As the title suggests, they attempt to bring about a laid back atmosphere of campfire-like storytelling.
The delegates create the content and discuss it in real time. There’s always a facilitator, who introduces the topic and steers the discussion.
10. Fishbowl Conversations
This is a super engaging meeting concept.
A fishbowl panel discussion comes from a popular open fishbowl conversation format. Guest panelists occupy two to three chairs. One chair is left empty for audience members. The moderator introduces the topic, and the panelists start discussing it. Any member of the audience can, at any time, occupy the empty chair and join the fishbowl panel. When this happens, an existing member of the fishbowl must voluntarily leave the fishbowl and free the chair. The discussion continues with participants frequently entering and leaving the panel until the time is up. The moderator then summarizes the discussion.
Events are becoming more and more about delivering impactful experiences and the above method will help to exceed delegate's expectations! Copyright to https://blog.sli.do/
