Industry News
Event planning is a huge undertaking and can feel overwhelming, even before the event begins. By outsourcing event management, associations can reap the benefits of having more time, a dedicated team specifically for the event, and more.
June was Pride Month, but LGBTQ+ inclusivity should be a year-round concern for meeting and event planners. Taking steps before, during, and after the event sets up your association for success this year and the years to come.
The hybrid meeting and event industry is facing a reduction in staff. As planners start preparations for the next events, vetting platforms will be even more crucial this year.
