Branding Your Meeting:
Competition is everywhere. In drawing attendance and exhibitors, you must know how your event will stand out from the rest.  Join Brian Hall, Chief Marketing Officer of the St. Louis CVC, in a discussion of how to highlight the uniqueness and value proposition of your event.

Protecting Your Meeting:

In today’s world operating a successful meeting also means considering all potential security issues you may encounter.  In this session, you will learn from Reggie Harris, Vice President of Public Safety with the St. Louis CVC, about some of the items all planners should consider with their events.

Negotiating Your Contracts:
We will answer your questions regarding contractual issues faced by both planner and suppliers. Jason Jordan, Director of Sales for the St. Louis CVC, will field any and all questions.  Because Jason’s background includes both convention center operations and hotel and meeting planning experience, Jason is well prepared to address what is happening across the board in our industry!
