Audience activation and engagement through spatial narratives and immersive experience design

A one-of-a-kind event in the experience industry for participants coming together from different backgrounds and disciplines with a common goal –  create impactful, inspiring and engaging guest experiences that attract, engage and retain visitors.

March 15-16-17, 2023

Copenhagen, Denmark

An explorative three-day event

MasterClass, Workshop and Study Trip

Explore new ways of using spaces to create unique experiences for visitors with game and play, interaction, immersive storytelling and more. We will work with methods and tools that transform spaces from passive backgrounds into living stories that attract, engage and retain visitors.

The event consists of a MasterClass and a Workshop, where participants will learn about multi-platform storytelling techniques, audience journey mapping, spatial narrative design, engagement, and immersive storytelling. And for a complete learning experience, we will have an exciting study trip on the third day. We are preparing a highly interactive program with hands-on activities and learning through play.

This event is for anyone working with spaces as part of guest experiences. It can be especially interesting to professionals who work with exhibitions and museums, immersive and themed experiences, escape rooms, attractions or architecture. 

Online meet-up before the event

Join Klaus Sommer Paulsen and David Bassuk on Zoom for a 45-minute talk about how spaces become places enriched through immersive learning and exploration through play. Use this online event to ask any questions about our three-day program in Copenhagen.
