#RealTalk Dialogue Series | Breaking through the Bamboo Ceiling in the Meeting and Events Industry

Credits: None available.

1 Clock Hour | Domain E: Human Resources

#RealTalk is BACK! Come engage in deep-dive conversations around the DEI topics that matter most today. It’s been more than a year of conversations and awareness around the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities and the challenges that continue to be experienced. There remains, however, a proverbial “Bamboo Ceiling” for AAPI individuals still challenged by underrepresentation and lack of inclusion and voice in visible and critical industry leadership positions. Please join leading AAPI thought leaders and an ally in this important discussion to understand their experiences and to develop thinking and actions to learn to create inclusion for the AAPI and other underrepresented groups in our industry.

During this session, you will...

  • Listen to personal stories of experiences and leadership journeys of AAPI colleagues, develop a greater understanding of obstacles.
  • Become aware of barriers and methods by which we each can advance actions to leadership.
  • Set action steps with knowledge gained from the discussion to greater inclusion in the meetings and events industry for those currently underrepresented.

Load Up Your Accessible Meeting Planner Toolkit

1 Clock Hours | Domain B: Project Management

Join us as we welcome back Sam Evans as we continue our conversation about accessibility and how to plan for it from the beginning stages and not when you're at the end of the process. Are you as a planner committed to accessible events and do you know how to ask for options at your venues? Are you as a supplier offering accessibility options and are planners aware they are options? According to the CDC, 61 million adults in the United States alone live with a disability. That is 26% (1 in 4) of adults in the United States living with some form of disability. 

During this session, you will learn...

  • How and when to include accessibility in your meeting planner timeline. 
  • The basics of sourcing accessible vendors for the non-technical. 
  • How to always keep optimizing the human experience as your guiding principal.

Did you miss Sam at the start of June? Access the on-demand session here and don't forget to register for her upcoming 30-Minute Monday on May 23rd here.

Event Ecosystem: Your Secret to Mastering the New Event Landscape - Whitepaper Debrief 04.26.2022

Credits: None available.

1 Clock Hour | Domain A: Strategic Planning

A dramatic shift in the tools and skills that planners need for success has occurred in the last two years. Throughout an onslaught on new event formats (hello, virtual and hybrid), new technologies, process changes, building last-minute contingencies into event design, and now navigating a return to in-person events, planners have repeatedly risen to new challenges.

But as teams are stretched to their limits, as job roles expand and become more complex, the need is emerging for planners to have a new network of resources, expertise, and support. This event ecosystem can help fill skills and capabilities gaps and offers planning teams new avenues for successfully managing and executing their events.

Join Mike Dietrich and Julie Haddix from Cvent as they discuss how an event ecosystem can assist you in mastering the new event landscape. You’ll learn:

  • Elements of an ecosystem (spoiler alert –it’s more than just tech)
  • Tips for using an ecosystem to overcome gaps in skills or capabilities
  • How Cvent’s ecosystem can enable your success

The Secret to Creating an Extraordinary Experience with Your Members

Credits: None available.

1 Clock Hour | Domain A: Strategic Planning

The truth to creating an extraordinary experience and enhancing a sustainable platform for higher retention of members comes down to not "what you do" but "why you do what you do" from shared or similar core values. It's what is compelling to them and not what makes your meeting unique.

During this session...

  • Attendees will be able to implement processes to retain current members and attract more people to their functions based on similar values.
  • Attendees will know how to be more compelling and influential to others as an authority in your segment.
  • Attendees will learn how to create a value statement that can be part of any marketing or service strategy that will lead to more referrals and higher retention of members.
