Very informative. My first session with this group and I'll definitely be back.

Overall, a very worthwhile and valuable event.
I would have liked the first talk to address transmedia more specifically. It was more of an Entrepreneur 101 intro class without much discussion about the particular needs and challenges that transmedia has. I know for me, one big interest I have is legal liability and insurance for transmedia experiences, especially live parts. It seems there is a much larger risk involved with potential lawsuits and lots of murky grey area. For instance, what happens if a player misinterprets a clue and ends up entering a wrong, illegal space or gets hurt?
I would love to have heard more about how to pitch transmedia experiences to clients who have never worked in that space before. It seems to be particularly difficult to explain succinctly without scaring them. Also, some case studies with basic budgets and profit/loss (if possible) would be useful to give a sense of what different experiences or campaigns may cost.

Understood - we've definitely considered charging but our location complicates things as it would then need to be ticketed via their box office. For right now we have to stick with the current system. We only Livestream our Forums, the Immersion room is small and not conducive to a Livestream. Plus these are meant to be highly interactive workshops and that just wouldn't work via video stream.
