What now!? Every time we overcome an obstacle we’re presented with a new one. We’d like to focus on education, networking, attendee ROI and delivering a great meeting experience, but “disruption” seems to be the industry trend. Today, our industry is filled with hotel mergers, meeting consolidations, stories of hotel room block dispersion and constant change to meeting technology.
Join us on Global Meetings Industry Day, Thursday, April 14th, at the Independence Seaport Museum where we’ve invited industry friends and experts to engage in conversation on how these disruptive forces are shaping our space today.
Jack P. Ferguson, President and CEO, Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau [retired] will help lead a conversation with our panel including:
Thomas Hutchinson, Director of Production Services, SMG/Pennsylvania Convention Center
Anne M. Madden, CMP, HMCC, Senior Sourcing Manager, Maritz Travel Company, Immediate Past President MPI Philadelphia Chapter
Robert E O'Connell, Jr., Senior Sales Manager, Global Experience Specialists (GES)
Julie Romanetti, Director, Housing Services, Showcare Event Solutions
Paul Wong, Associate Director, Annual Meeting Content & Design, DIA
Thank you to our sponsors and host!
