You can’t do it alone. Successful meeting planners today must bridge the gap between the audience and internal stakeholders to ensure event success

Our presenters will be Marian R. Calvin, Vice President Marketing and Communications for Experient and Wendy Holliday, Vice President, Marketing and Member Services, National Association of College Stores.

This highly interactive program will be chock full of practical how-to’s and how not to’s, peer to peer networking, and sharing outrageous wins and outrageous fails. Learner outcomes will include:

  • Understanding the vital link between the event’s strategic goal, implementing that vision and promoting and positioning for success
  • Dealing with silos of responsibility: How and why education (staff or volunteers), marketing and planning must be in sync. Steps to get you started and in sync with your internal staff.
  • Linking exhibitor needs, participant value, and your own event goals: Positioning your trade show as cash cow or significant value delivery medium
  • Creating welcoming and engaging environments before, during and after the show

Package includes:

  • Complimentary overnight Thursday, April 11 to include four water park passes for April 11-12 for your family.
