World Experience Summit
June 28-30, 2023 – London, UK
The 500 members of the World Experience Organization invite you to invest in your future at the first global gathering of experience pioneers.
Ignite The Experience Revolution
The world stands on the brink of incredible transformation, as humankind makes the leap from materialism to experientialism. No surprise, then, that the Experience Economy is set to soar in value to $12 trillion by 2028.
Now, for the first time ever, Experience Economy pioneers from around the globe and across all sectors will come together at the World Experience Summit to define the future of experiences.
There’ll only ever be one inaugural World Experience Summit. Will you be part of it?
Limited places available.
Join the global experience community at the inaugural Summit and you will:
CONNECT with Experience Economy experts and strengthen your place in the experience community
DISCOVER radical ideas about the Art, Science, Business, and Future of experiences
LEARN how to stage better, more successful, profitable, and sustainable experiences
LEAD the next chapter of the Experience Revolution
CONNECT With Experts
The Summit will be buzzing with experience thinkers and doers. Makers and shakers. Authors, designers, operators and investors. All of them looking to learn, share, and upgrade their experience network, just like you.
Connect and collaborate through curated, informal, and serendipitous moments, all designed for you to connect intimately and authentically with experience friends and colleagues both old and new.
LEARN New Tools
Uncover tools, techniques and tips from leaders in the Art, Science, and Business of experiences. Think creative directors and technologists, experience designers and architects, artists, entrepreneurs, investors, show writers, psychologists, neuroscientists, and beyond.
Expand your ‘Experience Design Toolkit’ with insights, techniques, and tools from the same, similar, adjacent, and utterly opposite experience sectors.
SHARE Your Ideas
Our agenda is ‘TBCC’: To Be Co-Created. Share your frameworks and your f**k-ups, your challenges and questions, your experiments and passion projects – and then get feedback and support from a non-competitive, inclusive, and very collaborative community.
Whether you lead a workshop, take the floor at the Unconference, or help shape our closing event, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to show just what you’re capable of.
Learn how to design, make, operate, and promote successful experiences from other experience experts. Take part in innovation and experience design workshops, and prototype experience concepts with pioneers from all sectors.
The Experience Economy is alive with innovative creators. So this stage will be shared: everyone’s invited to share their case studies, failures, and opinions. Start a discussion or have a rant. Share a new approach, try out a new idea, or teach a technique.
Big Ideas, Weird Ideas, Experience Trends
TED-style talks on the Art, Science, Business and Future of Experiences – with emerging trends like Functional Experiences & Experience Districts – from both household names and geniuses you haven’t heard of (yet).
Speed-Dating vs Match-Making
Did someone say gamified, experiential networking? Connect with experience experts in one of our quick-fire mixers. And if “networking” makes you queasy, opt in for curated introductions.
The best connections and most business decisions happen at the bar or on the dancefloor. There will be plenty of opportunities to hang out, dress up, dress down, and even – because the neuroscience is hard to ignore – dance and sing. The Summit closes with a co-created event.
Pop-Ups And Prototypes
Limited-edition, multi-sensory, experiential pop-ups from around the world. Never-seen-before experience prototypes. And experience creators pitching their new ideas.
Visit a handpicked selection of London’s most exciting experiences with your new experience friends. After, we’ll analyse the good and the bad of what you saw, and which techniques you might use in your own work.
The best experiences are active, not passive. So our agenda is a work in progress and ‘To Be Co-Created’ with attendees. We’re hosting sessions to co-curate, co-design, and co-create the Summit. Applications for proposals are now open.

If want to stay up to date with the latest techniques; if you want to upgrade your experience toolkit with sharper, better calibrated tools to stay ahead of your competitors and stage better experiences – the World Experience Summit will be time well spent, and time well invested.
