Wow, love this so much! I feel like I so often see emergence coming up at the smaller scale of a 5-minute dialogue or meeting, so pushing that to the scale of a conference is...very cool. Would love to hear more about how expectations were set among participants and facilitators to allow for grace and patience while trying out something so unknown.

we could have done a better job of trying to read the preferences of participants when we met them at Day 0 evening drinks and adjusting how the emergent process would be messaged when the conference opened on the morning of Day 1.
