The Community Service Committee
will be collecting small denomination gift cards for beverages for the
KC Vet Center during the upcoming State of the Industry Program. We
recommend $5 gift cards at Starbucks, Dunkin Doughnuts, Scooter’s, Quick
Trip, Casey's, etc. The committee collected similar gift cards last
year and they were well received, so we decided to do this again.
If you forget to bring your
cards that evening, we will accept cash donations on site, and the
committee will purchase cards on your behalf.

Thank you again for all of your continued support for our great local charities!
Disruptive Forces in the Business Events Industry - What Now?! Disruption
appears to be a bad word but is it? Disruption is coming from everywhere
and is significantly impacting all facets of our industry and is
forever changing the way we do business. Whether its education,
networking, ROI, experiential design we are living in real time of
transformational change. Today, our industry is filled with hotel
mergers, meeting consolidations, stories of hotel room block dispersion,
changes to meeting technology and the list goes on. Join us on
Tuesday, November 15th, where we’ve invited industry friends and experts
to engage in conversation on how these disruptive forces are shaping
our space today.
