Global Meetings Industry Day: Navigating the Road to Success

After two years of navigating through the uncertainty of the pandemic, we are ready for an industry reset. Both planners and suppliers are looking for the new road that leads to best practices and success.

It is time to recalibrate our industry GPS. Hear from three planners as they tell their personal stories post-pandemic: what they have done, what they are planning, and how they will approach future challenges. Moderator Carvie Gillikin, HMCC, President & Chief Client Officer, McVeigh Global Meetings & Events, will pilot the conversation for an engaging fireside chat.

In addition, you will also hear “Tales from the Trenches” where frontline workers–the unsung heroes that survived the challenges of a hard-hit industry–share personal stories of persistence in the face of adversity. Join us as we revisit the past to take stock of the lessons learned that will lead us to a better tomorrow.

Don’t miss this informative and engaging session where you will learn:

  • What in-person meetings currently look like
  • How to best partner with your supplier to set realistic expectations for future programs
  • How to overcome future obstacles, i.e. hotel availability, staff shortages, supply chain issues
  • What we are keeping and what we are leaving in the past as it pertains to planning in-person meetings going forward
