Immersion Strategy Focus Groups™

Innovation Discovery Labs and Summits

Forecast breaks the mold of traditional scientific meetings by designing timely topic areas into a separate stand alone project, or a pre/post conference revenue-generating event. IDLs offer opportunities for your organization to generate new audiences, determine market applications, and extend the value of your main conference. It's a specialized opportunity to learn from experts.

Forecast's Innovation Discovery Lab(SM) is a specialized educational conference designed to highlight an organization's expertise. The IDL concept helps associations and other groups showcase their technical talent by providing key members and high profile experts a highly interactive specialty conference model. It also provides a unique model for cost and revenue sharing. Forecast utilizes a team of technical, marketing and administrative experts to provide the direction and operational support for the IDL. We work independently or together with the organization's staff and volunteers to determine topical areas, then research and design an educational agenda.

Forecast created the Innovation Discovery Lab(SM) product to expand an association's educational portfolio and expand into independent conference production, while continuing to provide its consulting services to professional associations, universities and businesses.
