The Lab

An immersive, interactive learning environment.

This collaborative learning environment—unlike traditional conferences, trade shows, or hosted buyers events—will inspire you to break free and try new ways of thinking, ushering in a new era of success for you and your events. Through this energizing, original setting, that is custom-designed to meet the needs of adult learners, you’ll work side-by-side with your XDP team to surround yourself with new ways of thinking, uncover actionable opportunities, and tackle the most important industry issues in the meetings industry today. Discover a whole new perspective in The Lab!

Lab Learning


Led by a dynamic host and incredible industry thought leaders serving as zone captains, The Lab takes place in a hub-and-spoke designed learning environment. You’ll rotate throughout the day to experience the three simultaneous zones of education in The Lab, each focused on a distinct segment of the XDP core curriculum.
