Welcome to Plan Your Meetings’ 2007 Houston Expo. These pages are your first look at an event we hope will reshape the way you look at yourself, your business and the meeting planning industry.
Budgets, ROI, more and better for less… we could go on and on, but we know you’ve heard it all. Instead, we’re going to show you the reason you got into meeting planning in the first place. The theme of the day is “Take Your Meetings from Ordinary… to Extraordinary” and that’s what we’re planning to do for you. Our keynote presentation, seminar session and other activities are designed to help recharge your creative juices, delivering ideas and resources that will ensure memorable, successful events while meeting budget realities.
This is not a dry, boring, all-work and no-play tradeshow. Yes, we’ll get down to business: You’re going to enjoy high-level advice, education and peer interaction. But we’re also going to treat and entertain you: Meet over coffee; put your mark on our Best Places to Meet Map; tour the beautiful host facility and gardens; win great prizes… and more.
Start here. We’ve created these pages to help you plan your Expo day and connect with other planners, exhibitors and our staff. You can share other conference experiences and ideas in a blog, and set meetings with exhibitors and attendees. Get involved and have fun. Be sure to sign up early!
If you need a note for your boss, let me know. I’ll convince her or him that you’ll be working hard all day (wink) but it will pay off in spades (that’s the truth)!
I can’t wait to see you there,
