I was absolutely blown away by Michael Dominguez’s presentation on the latest trends in the industry. Michael is obviously a very practiced and utilized presenter because he immediately captivated the audience with his facts about how quickly the industry can change and comparing it to other industries and companies and how some of them have made the wrong choices, that has lead to where they are today. His charts and graphs were great representations of these changes and what we can do as suppliers and planners to not make similar mistakes in our everyday work. There is always room to grow and do better and that was the take way I received from Michael’s presentation.

The glimpse into the future technology coming to the event industry was my “AWE” moment! Crystal Washington provided a great presentation at the closing session sharing information on how mobile phones, social networks and apps are able to enhance event experience and keep us connected but nothing will replace face to face communication, phone calls or handwritten notes.
