What is involved with Event Design using the EventCanvas Methodology and the EDC Program you ask?

You are might be familiar with the saying,  “The bait has to taste good to the fish, not to the angler.”

Fishing for results

In the event industry, this means various stakeholders ultimately decide on the success or failure of your event. The personal taste of the planner designing and executing the event ultimately doesn’t guarantee success. Don’t get us wrong, your taste and style is a huge asset, but it is not enough in our new digitally transformed world.

Now you might ask yourself:  What can an event design process look like?

Can we apply a process that is practical, generates innovative ideas, takes the decision-makers goals into account and at the same time proves the value creation potential of an event.

Most importantly for 2021, help us navigating our shift to digital delivery?

The #Event Canvas method provides you with answers to these and other questions with a practical approach. In this interactive workshop, you will learn how to use the #Event Canvas method to develop target group-specific events that focus on generating added value for all actors involved.

The method is based on the core principles of design thinking and supports the creative process without losing sight of the return on time, resources and financial investments.

Join our Level 1 Certificate course to learn how to apply this methodology and join the community of change makers embracing the process and contributing to the intentional design movement.
