No Secrets Here. This is What We’ve Been Chatting About with Vendors.

Over the last several weeks, we have taken a deep dive into creating practical ways exhibitors can determine how to "choose the right meetings". So, we thought it only fair to share with you the information we are recommending to our vendor family when they are figuring out what meetings [...]

Have You Really Tried Knowing Them?

Over the last couple of years, Ann and I have had the awesome opportunity to work with more of you - the planners behind the scenes! We've also been able to get a closer look at those who are going the extra mile to truly get to know their audiences [...]

How to Conquer Imposter Syndrome
