The Futures Lab, Inc. has been awarded a foresight project to explore and develop strategic direction for the IAEE.
Organized in 1928 as the National Association of Exposition Managers to represent the interests of trade show and exposition managers, the International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ is today the leading association for the global exhibition industry. Today IAEE represents over 9,500 individuals in over 50 countries who conduct and support exhibitions around the world.
Over 50 percent of IAEE’s members are directly involved in the planning, management, and production of exhibitions and buyer-seller events. The remainder of IAEE’s membership consists of those who provide products and services to the industry.
In addition to our foresight expertise, TFL’s experience in the events industry through it subsidiary, The Future Entertainment and Events Lab (FEEL) will provide additional insights into the potential for the Association and the industry.

Our Future Entertainment and Events Lab – FEEL – (www.thesenseevent.com) has won an exciting project to create, curate and produce the Annual Gathering for the Association of Professional Futurists. More news to follow!
As The Futures Lab enters its 19th year of operation, I am pleased to report that 2014 was both a very successful and transformative year.
On the foresight consulting front we undertook some exciting projects both directly and through our sister company in London (Your Future (London) and our satellite offices. These included foresight work for Kelloggs, AKZO-Nobel, Phillips, the BBC, Intercontinental Hotels and Whitbread amongst others.
Then there was the expansion and consolidation of our Future Entertainment and Events Lab (FEEL)(previously Plutopia Productions) www.thesenseevent.com, where we created, curated and produced STEAM³ – The Future of Education,a conference and interactive playground, which was held in March at the University of Texas’s Commons Learning Center. www.steam3.com. We will be holding a similar event together with Georgia State University in September 2015.
We also added a non-profit arm LIFE (Learning Innovations in Future of Education) www.http://livinglearning.co/, which besides being very involved with the STEAM³ event, undertook to create a fully self-contained mobile learning course on The Future of Mobile Learning for the University of Adger in Norway, with our President, Derek Woodgate as the class instructor and Maggie Duval, the Chair of LIFE providing all the back end design and set up. Derek Woodgate has since been made an Adjunct Professor at the University of Adger and will be teaching a Future of Media course in Spring 2015. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Georgia State University, where he teaches The Future of Entertainment and Learning through The Futures Lab’s foresight process. Also in 2014, Maggie Duval, taught at the Skybridge Academy in Austin.
TFL’s focus over the past decade has been firmly placed on the future of entertainment and media, education, culture and new communities. Consequently, Derek Woodgate has continued to be in wide demand to speak on these subjects and 2014 was no exception with a keynote role at the MMC and numerous engagements at conferences and universities.
2015 has already set off at a whirl and we are anticipating another exciting, successful year and wish you all the same.
For this unique two-day event held in Austin, TX we’ve assembled some of the world’s foremost experts in the field of future education as well as the most innovative and immersive demonstrations and exhibits of emerging educational technologies!
Special topics to include alternative approaches to education,avatars for learning, education is art, art is education, and more!
The event itself is only the beginning of our journey. It will continue through a number of similar events that we are planning for Atlanta, GA, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and Manchester, UK, as well as through an online post-event portal and virtual and in-person salons.
