With so much talk about the many ways our experiential/live events industry has changed, it is perhaps difficult at times to remember how we used to design and share experiences. But, in some very big ways designing events in the ways we used to is more important and meaningful than ever before. So much of the inspiration that moves us—those ideas, places, visions, and concepts—remains unchanged. We are all longing for familiar experiences. Although there are undoubtedly new steps and precautions that need special attention and consideration, it will be important understand how designing in the new world is a lot like designing in the old world. Through your designs we all afford people temporary escapes, and at the same time, more than ever before, we allow them an opportunity to rediscover a world and feeling that was once familiar and comfortable. We all create memories and experiences, not setups!
