Program Description:
Join us on Wednesday, January 23 for some sweet eats and sweet steps to improving your conference and meetings. Whether you are an executive director looking to improve member participation and increase profit, a conference planner wanting to shake-up a tired event, or association staff wanting to improve the planning process, you'll leave this program with some great ideas! 

Does this sound familiar?  You and your staff are planning your next conference. Your budget has remained the same, yet your food & beverage, transportation and ancillary conference costs are increasing by the day.  How can you control costs that keep rising while working with the same budgetary constraints year over year? How can you create a better event without spending more money to do so? 

There are some ways you can derive revenue from your event by improving attendee experiences and using communication tools in a smarter way.  Creative sponsorship engagement and stealthy production tricks can be your ticket to weaving an amazing event while keeping costs at bay.  

It's never too late to learn some new tricks with Experiential Event guru, Kelly Kucera, Owner of Root Productions.  

$5.00 to cover cost of food and drink
