9AM – 4PM, MONDAY 12 SEPTEMBER 2016, PALAIS DES CONGRÈS
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
For 2016, the PURE Conference is no more. Instead, we’re replacing it PURE’s first collaborative ‘un-conference’, MATTER, where your contribution really does matter: because you ARE the content.
MATTER is an all-day un-conference; a creative forum focused on collaboration and the exchange of ideas with the power to Change Worlds. There are four elements to explore: SPARK, LEARN, DISCUSS and ACHIEVE.
An opportunity for the most innovative among you to get on the main stage and tell the PURE community how Small Promises Change Worlds. The catch? Speakers have just 3 minutes 45 seconds to impress, with timed slides ready to move on even if they don’t. Find out how to submit your SPARK below.
Forty-minute talks from individuals within the PURE ecosystem, containing insights that look at the experiential industry from a different perspective.
Got a burning idea around the theme of ‘overcoming the challenges of experiential travel’? This is your chance to share it with the world by leading an informal discussion with a group of PUREists. The instigator will spend five minutes introducing their topic before handing over to the crowd to challenge, question and deliberate further. The aim is to inspire collaboration rather than find a concrete solution (although if you manage that too, good work!).
Intimate workshops hosted by individuals outside of the PURE community who will challenge you to make changes to your business – before showing you how these can be implemented.
What keeps YOU up at night?
For 2016, we’re inviting members of the PURE community only to lead a discussion around the topic of ‘overcoming the challenges of experiential travel’. Taking place on Monday 12 September, DISCUSS consists of several informal discussions with groups of up to 40 PUREists. The instigator will spend five minutes introducing their topic before handing over to the crowd to challenge, question and deliberate further, with DISCUSS sessions running simultaneously – the audience will vote with their feet as to what they want to participate in. The aim is to inspire collaboration rather than find a concrete solution (although if you manage that too, good work!).
The SPARK stage is reserved for those who can strike inspiration and ignite conversation… In under four minutes. Three minutes and 45 seconds, to be precise.
This year we’re all about doing, rather than denying. The PURE community is made up of individuals who’ve committed their lives to changing the world and our perspectives of it through the transformative power of travel. So, for your SPARK presentation, we want you to tell us how Small Promises Change Worlds.
Whether it’s a conservation project, a sustainability mantra, a brand ethos or an alternative way to travel. It could be a marketing video, a no-print policy, a community initiative, or an inspiring itinerary. Or maybe it’s a tech innovation, a new means of communication, or simply a really great story. Surprise us. Shock us. Show us how small deeds can be a platform for great change.
We’ll be selecting those ideas with the most firepower ahead of the day. If you want to get involved, pitch us your idea on how Small Promises Change Worlds by 26 August.
(Remember: you’ll need to be available to speak at PURE Life Experiences in Marrakech on Monday 12 September, as well as attend a rehearsal on Sunday 11 September.)
