Load Up Your Accessible Meeting Planner Toolkit

Credits: None available.

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.

Credits: None available.

#RealTalk is BACK! Come engage in deep-dive conversations around the DEI topics that matter most today. This month's focus will be in recognition of Women's History Month.

During this session, you will...

  • Analyze ways in which societal institutions and power structures impact women’s leadership opportunities and success.
  • Be able to identify meaningful intersections between gender and other social and cultural identities.
  • Be able to identify equity strategies that create an inclusive environment building opportunities for more women in leadership.

Sustainable F&B: Your Guide to Eco-Friendly Meals - Whitepaper Debrief 03.22.2022

Credits: None available.

1 Clock Hour | Domain G: Meeting or Event Design

Food impacts the environment through its cultivation, transportation, distribution, consumption and disposal—which means the choices you make for your event meal functions can have outsized consequences locally, regionally and even globally. The choices your vendors make can have positive or negative effects on ecosystems, greenhouse gas emissions, water quality, waste and more. From ingredients and portion sizes to waste reduction and service ware, review the choices you make as part of the strategy, design and execution of event F&B functions through the lens of sustainability, all based on MPI's new whitepaper, "Sustainable F&B: Your Guide to Eco-Friendly Meals," developed with support from Virginia Beach.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Design and source sustainable menus.
  • Reduce food waste through prevention and landfill diversion.
  • Deep dive into the "Sustainable F&B: Your Guide to Eco-Friendly Meals" white paper as a job aide to designing sustainable meal functions.
