It is time to REIMAGINE how we plan, produce, and execute meetings and events. Our goal as event planners and industry consultants is to provide new and improved best practices that stretch beyond enhanced SOPs, checklists, and templates to deliver a comprehensive, consultative experience to event stakeholders.
