Event Details

Organizations in Washington, think tanks especially, host hundreds if not thousands of policy-related events a year. They cost a lot of money to organize, cater, and produce, and they've been doing them largely the same way since anyone can remember. But could they be more effective at engaging people, especially online?

Groups like TED have found a lot of success crafting events for the digital space, but it’s not clear everyone else has caught on. Please join us for a discussion of better integrating events with digital and social media, creating viral policy content, and more.
