CONVERG — The New Movement in Meetings
CONVERG is the Grand Wayne Convention Center’s collaboration experience that seamlessly converts a group meeting from classroom lecture into micro-teams into group dynamics and back in seconds.
By design, CONVERG ignites the core values of engagement—movement, connectivity, and collective creativity—so meeting planners can easily and effectively create better, more productive sessions. Intuitively, CONVERG freely adapts to each session’s creative energy by merging every aspect into a single scope of collaboration and creativity.
