There are a thousand and one reasons why I love meeting planning and why it’s a career that has kept me engaged for well over 25 years. I love the planning piece, making sure everything is in order,i’s dotted and t’s crossed. I love the people aspect of meeting the attendees, working with suppliers and all the wonderful support during the planning. I love the satisfaction of a program well managed and executed.
BUT what I love most of all is the continual journey of learning. Meeting / Event planning is a career where truly the more you know that more you realize there is always something more to learn.
A great resource, almost a “mini-meeting-university” is the annual TEC conference. Here in just a few days you will experience a wealth of knowledge, current trends and tools that will make you more effective. In addition, at TEC you will be surrounded by like-minded peers, who willingly share their knowledge, experience, and challenges. TEC will give you everything you need to continue to build your career and raise your expertise to a new level.
We hope to see you in Collingwood. You won’t be disappointed.
