The questions we ask our PYM LIVE panelists come from what planners say they’re struggling with or need to learn when they register, roundtables held in that city before the event and from current events. Our first-ever PYM LIVE Alexandria, Va./Washington, D.C., on Oct. 23, sponsored by the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association, affords us a chance to witness, firsthand, what sequestration followed by the shutdown has done to the meetings industry.
So in addition to discussing the importance of strategic meetings management and the positive impact meeting planners can have on society and the environment, we’ll be gathering personal narratives about what’s happening in our industry at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center.
You also can get a window into the event by viewing a real-time stream of our event app chatter below (courtesy of Topi). Or by following the hashtag #yaypym on Twitter.
