Who we are
EVENT DESIGN COLLECTIVE
We are event designers who train and consult with event owners, event managers and educators.
Our approach is based on our experience, experiments and expertise. We train teams and individuals to apply the Event Canvas methodology to elevate the field of event design and we advise clients from membership-based organisations to NGOs and corporations.
WHAT IS THE EVENT CANVAS?
The Event Canvas is a strategic management template for developing new or documenting existing events and conference models.
It’s a visual chart with elements describing an event’s promise, how it helps stakeholders to get their jobs done, resolving pains and creating gains within a set framework of commitment and expected return. The canvas articulates how the behaviour changes as a result of having participated in the event as well as stating the required levels of satisfaction against expectations. Additionally the canvas outlines the costs and expected revenues in relation to the customer journey (service design) and the instructional design of the event.
WHO CREATED THE EVENT CANVAS?
The Event Canvas was created by Ruud Janssen and Roel Frissen and builds on the visual framework initially proposed by Alexander Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas and based on the earlier work on Business Model Ontology.
The Event Canvas template is available free download under a Creative Commons 4.0 license here.
