Educational Session

A Case Study of the Meetings Industry Rebound | 3 – 4 pm

So much conversation lately has been centered around how organizations used to do things and the desire to return to the way things were. The time for looking back is over, it’s time to not only look towards the future but to strategize, plan and implement forward-thinking changes. This program will be a case study of six leading industry experts. We’ll be looking at how meetings and events have evolved and how they’ll adapt moving forward. We’ll examine the successes, the challenges and learn what it takes to ideate and execute new ideas for upcoming meetings and events.
