We ask public servants to innovate and take risks, so we try to embody that ourselves. Each year, we experiment with new technologies and formats to improve attendee experience. Here’s what we tried in 2022.
We returned to the Aberdeen Pavillion in Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park. Given the hybrid format, we designed a more spacious, distributed layout that avoided crowding, and encouraged in-person attendees to go out to the surrounding restaurants and stores for lunch.
The adjacent Horticulture building served as a backup space for some of the tech and staff who ran the event, and nearby dinner spots were perfect for speaker meetings and improptu community gatherings.
