It may be a good Idea for future activities to interact with the living citizens of the conference helding city, in a session of 2-3 hours, in an outdoor space - as a park. It may be feasible and possbile to realise it, whether the weather will not be proper (raining conditions or powerfull sunlight). The main scope of doing a conference session outside is that we as human beings, we need nature and light, even in the moments of working on something (see the reason of having bigger windows at work, transparent walls and plants or aquarium). Being an opened session to everyone, but in a park (and eventually promoted) it will be more accesible to citizens - and more attractive. The dressing code shall not be over the casual or smart casual type. Thus being said, I’m inviting you to offer feedback and ideas for this proposal.
The other question, can we?
This may be a problem for the timekeeper and organiser of the conference, because the delays may not be welcomed. So my idea for this concerning is to take lead everytime you are in a coffee break and try to take your networking partner/s in time to conference room. It may help the organisers and us to be in time there. I’m not a guy from the organising team, but I guess that this question raised my help them and us.
So, you can develop another idea, there a tonne of them, maybe some creative ones, will be the most appreciated.
