It took a pandemic to slow down the work at tcondon and with the slow down, it is giving us some time to share some of our current thinking. As the TEDMED conference was coming together in Boston, the Covid-19 virus was just beginning to be recognized as the tsunami that was about to hit the US. While the conference was reaching day 2, many corporations were implementing travel bans and the enormity of the crisis was beginning to be realized. We seemed to deliver this conference just under the wire and it became the last conference that our team helped execute. Designing comfortable settings to encourage networking and learning was the key. Each of the solutions reflect the personality or brand of the TEDMED and the many partners that support this wonderful conference that moves the world to a healthier place.
