Global Industry, Local Impact
The benefits of our industry often go unnoticed. Meetings play a critical role in developing personal connections, driving positive business outcomes and building strong communities. Every day we face professional challenges that effect our businesses, our meetings and events. Our panel of industry leaders will discuss the impact our industry has both globally and locally. Sharing their insights on the impact events have on the local community, giving attendees a greater understanding of the economic significance of their business, and through collaborative efforts, discuss ways we can deal with the challenges we currently face.
From this session, you will:
* Understand the impact that meeting, conference, convention, trade shows and exhibitions have on business and our local community.
* Find ways we can deal with the professional challenges we currently face in our industry
* Learn ways our collaborative efforts can result in positive business outcomes for our industry
