Over the years, we’ve attended several MeasureCamps held across Europe, and each one has been a great experience, and not just workwise. This year, we had the pleasure of visiting Copenhagen to join MeasureCamp, where we once again had an amazing time. And not just learning, but also traveling, exploring the city, enjoying our time together, and having some good long talks (and short drinks).
Amidst a sea of conventional conferences, where agendas are predetermined and presentations are scripted, and more often than not sales oriented, MeasureCamp stands out as a breath of fresh air. Dubbed the “unconference,” MeasureCamp revolutionizes the traditional conference format by putting attendees in the driver’s seat. In this article, we will delve into the essence of MeasureCamp, highlight its key features, and explore some of the insightful topics covered during our experience.
About Measure Camp
Unlike typical conferences, attendees actually shape the agenda at Measurecamp, meaning anyone with a topic related to analytics, tracking and digital, whether it’s technical or more business oriented, can propose a session. These topics are then displayed on a board, allowing attendees to choose the sessions they wish to participate in.
With each session lasting up to half an hour, participants have the freedom to hop between discussions based on their interests and needs. If a session does not resonate with you, it is perfectly acceptable to leave and join another.
The attendees are highly encouraged to engage in lively discussions, sharing their opinions, insights, and real-life work experiences and challenges so the emphasis is on learning from each other, rather than being lectured by speakers.
