There’s a lot that goes into planning a conference, but one thing that every organizer should prioritize is the attendee engagement strategy.

When attendees feel engaged throughout the entire conference journey, they are more likely to remember the experience as a positive one, which significantly impacts your bottom line. From networking opportunities to interactive breakout sessions, here are fifteen ideas will help you create a compelling engagement strategy for your next conference.
