When the world turned upside down after COVID19 struck, meeting professionals quickly shifted to design education for a digital environment. We threw out the rulebook we had followed our entire careers and we were suddenly forced into a place where every day was a new effort, a new skill, and a new discovery. Looking forward, we now must examine our event portfolios and plot a path to manage this new multi-channel approach to meetings. Join this session to see how we found new value in digital events for our sponsors and expanded our teams’ duties and capabilities to design and execute.

 During this session you will learn about: 

      • Designing new business models for your event portfolios using data-driven strategies
      • Identifying sponsorship opportunities, strategies and risk in digital conferences
      • Creating a team and a budget capable of producing the new events strategy and calendar



Additional Information about Lonnie’s Reno Club

The original Reno Club was located at 12th & Cherry—in the heart of Kansas City’s jazz district. Jazz greats such as Charlie “Yardbird” Parker and Count Basie made names for themselves there—and in fact it was at that location where the Count Basie Orchestra was formed.  Fast forward to 2020—Lonnie’s Reno Club is open in the lower level of the Ambassador Hotel Kansas City paying homage to the original club by bringing the same energy, music and experience! Open Friday and Saturday evenings for dinner and cocktails.


Come meet Lonnie McFadden at the PCMA “Best in Class” Program at the Ambassador Hotel Kansas City on August 25, 2021!
