As 2012 comes to a close, I wish to thank you all for another wonderful year! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life; both in work and in play. Thank you for your attention and time. Thank you for your part in the meetings industry; for planning meetings that teach and entertain attendees and bring your business or organization’s message to more people, in order that they, and you, can be even more . Thank you for all of this.
This year we acknowledged just how stressful meeting planning is and we talked about ways to de-stress a bit. We talked about how to take some of the hassle out of travel. We talked apps and tech, and how to use some of the newer social media platforms for your meetings. We watched the Olympics! We talked about food trends that made it and that some that did not. We visited some scary Haunted Hotels! Thank you all for it truly has been a lot of fun!
I am excited and hopeful for 2013. The economy is slowly but surely coming out of its doldrums. Our industry is gaining some much needed momentum. Our attendees and participants are being able to once again attend and participate! New life is being breathed into our industry and we have all come out wiser, more focused and ready for the next set of challenges.
Keep me in mind and call me in 2013 for all you site selection needs! I already know I would love to work with you!
