Is "diversified" really a suitable translation for what Germans call "abwechslungsreich"?

I need a word to describe a meeting or conference or other event which was the opposite of boring due to the variation of activities there.* German language has *abwechslungsreich*, literally *rich-of-changes*. All dictionaries I have available recommend *diversified*, but then, more precise definitions all meander around "diversifying a business" etc., and that's quite a different thing. So, what would native speakers use to describe a meeting that is pleasant for attendants because there is enough (but not too much) variation in activities? Note: *abwechslungsreich* is very often used also for landscapes. Would > Bulgaria has a diversified landscape. be a good sentence? My feeling is: rather not. But what could be used instead? ---------- *) I do not mean *interesting*, which one could claim is the primary opposite of boring. *Interesting* is regarding the contents of a meeting and the attitude of an attendant towards it. *Abwechslungsreich* however is about the agenda of the meeting.
