Engaging attendees using Twitter, multi-year contracts and budget challenges were among the topics tackled during the educational session at 2010 PYM LIVE Austin, held at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the University of Texas campus today.
Jeff Rasco (@JeffRasco) and Marla Werst (@ChicGeekGirl) helmed the roundtable discussion, which was inspired by our 2010 Big Book of Answers — a keepsake guide filled with meeting planner challenges and solutions. To get your free copy, subscribe to PYM.
