On March 30, in San Antonio, something amazing happened: We had 100 percent attendance, no attrition, at our PYM LIVE Event. That blew our minds because there’s always someone who can’t make it, and for this event, there were a handful of planners who were driving in from Austin who had either attended the event there or heard it was awesome and didn’t want to miss another one. So thanks, everybody, for making us feel so loved in the Hill Country.

The focus of the education was “Next Stop: Innovation,” part of a year-long dialog with audiences across America filled with innovative tips and tools. Because it is based on each audience’s needs and led by different teachers, it’s different in each city we go to. But, you can read about some of the items we discuss in my Meeting Technology 101 series and our 2011 annual guide (subscriptions are free!).
