PYM LIVE Houston 2018

Norris Centers/Houston City Centre | 816 Town and Country Blvd., Houston, TX 77024, USA
Plan Your Meeting Live (PYM LIVE) is a cutting-edge, relevant and engaging event developed specifically for the non-traditional meeting professional – the person whose job responsibilities include so much more than planning meetings or events.
PYM LIVE is a great way to hone your planning skills and connect with people who can help increase your chances of success! And what’s more, the event is complimentary to those who qualify.
Meeting professionals love coming to PYM LIVE events for three main reasons:
- Education & Clock Hours: PYM LIVE’s education is cutting-edge, engaging, and Event Industry Council-reviewed (which qualifies for clock hours).
- Connections: Meet industry professionals who can help you deliver on your meeting’s strategic objectives.
- Resources: Gain a fast-track to research destinations, hotels and other meeting-related services that help you deliver value to your organization and your attendees.
We pack a lot into a small amount of time. Expect to walk away with new friends, business contacts, and a whole bunch of new ideas that will help you plan better meetings and events.
“I would say that if you are a planner or a supplier, you need to attend PYM Live because you’re going to get the most up-to-date information, and you’re going to be able to meet other like-minded folks in your area.”
“The education topic was amazing. The networking is more than just a trade show. It is really a connection.”
Admission is free for qualified meeting and event professionals who do site selection or influence decisions for their company’s meetings and events, courtesy of our event host. Why? Because site-selection speed-meetings comprise a good portion of the event and we want this to be the most relevant, engaging, educational experience possible.

Featured Education: Extraordinary Inclusive
From age, race and gender to religion, language and experience, our meetings welcome a strikingly diverse audience of individuals from increasingly diverse backgrounds. How can we as meeting professionals create events that offer welcoming experiences to all of our participants? Discuss the different ways people differ from each other, discover next practices in welcoming diverse audiences and creating inclusive experiences and brainstorm ways we can be more hospitable to the individuals we host.
