The AIME is the leading meetings and conventions event in the Asia Pacific region. The 4 DiD experiential workshops were conducted as part of the knowledge program for which 350 event industry professionals were invited to attend different breakout sessions. The dark sessions were completely booked and 10 blind or low vision facilitators took part in this event. Kathryn Lee, the Prinicipal of Lumino Events, and a participant of workshops spoke about the importance of human interaction in the event industry, saying that she, "couldn’t think of a better way to break down barriers, and instantly give people something to talk about, build rapport and relate to than Dialogue in the Dark session...It made us laugh, it made us think, it built camaraderie, and identified unlikely leaders.”
