The National Launches Experiential Learning Concepts

The National Conference Center introduced eight experiential learning concepts during the recent Reston Herndon Meeting Planners’ Summer Camp at the Lansdowne campus.

RHMP is a membership organization of meeting and event industry professionals in the Washington, DC, metro area. It focuses on educating meeting planners about issues and trends in their industry.

In addition to the 14-element Challenge Course at The National, the center’s conference planners created eight engaging and interactive experiential learning rooms, each with an individual theme, to be used for teambuilding, communication and problem-solving exercises.

Approximately 230 meeting professionals attended the annual camp.

“The experiential learning room concepts and features like the Tiki bar gave the venue a festive atmosphere to help generate extensive networking among planners and suppliers. The room setups enabled our educational sessions to deliver on their content objectives and helped to cultivate the shared learning and best practices among the meeting professionals that we strive for,” stated Phil Rappoport, vice president of sales and marketing for the AgendaPop nobile event app.

Attendees visited various rooms, each outfitted with a theme and special props, lighting, music and aromas to encourage teambuilding, conversation, and engagement.

The innovative Experiential Learning Meeting Rooms are available for half day, full day or even just for a few hours. Program cost based on programming design, detail and agenda.
