We were blessed to have one of the industry’s TOP thought leaders in experience design with us today!

In this episode, we discuss “intentional event design” with our guest, Tahira, and what goes into designing a transformative experience. We talk about an article Tahira wrote for MPI about the distribution challenges we have with food and our events and we question how the industry can help achieve zero hunger. We also discuss the state of event technology and innovation.
