Last week Orlando was the gathering place for the Association of Professional Futurists, and E2i Creative had two opportunities to interact with these fascinating, thought-provoking consultants. On Friday, May 3rd, the Gathering met at IST in the morning and toured several IST labs, including E2i Creative, where they saw compelling simulations from three specific projects. On Saturday evening, a Simtacular Sensation event was held at a downtown Orlando club, and E2i Director Eileen Smith and Creative Designer Michael Carney were part of the organizing team, along with several Disney team members and a senior researcher from the Army Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Co-Lab here in Orlando. The event was an amazing opportunity to spend some quality discussion time with folks who are not predicting the future, but creating roadmaps for diverse industry and organizational clients on how they should think about the future, and drive the future, of their unique institutions. The participants are world-wide in geographic scope, and bring an amazing sense of understanding the past, present and future.
