Education Session

Adapting Your Meetings to Evolving Customer Behaviors
Adaptability and flexibility have become crucial elements of the association and meeting planner utility belt over the past few years. A key to this is the ability to identify ever-changing behaviors and profiles of attendees and creating an experience that fosters valuable engagement. These behaviors include the accelerated influence of the pandemic, adoption/acceptance of work from home, virtual events, video chat communications and the ripple effect on attendee expectations with their onsite experience. Our panel of experts will discuss how their organizations adapted their meetings and events to meet the ever-evolving needs of their constituents and discuss some high-level takeaways that attendees can implement into their own programs.
