Meeting planners and event producers invest months preparing for an experience and yet what they do in the final weeks can be crucial to success. There are a variety of scenarios that play out over and over again. This event will focus on planning in two areas that can impact the cost and quality of your event as well as the experience of your audience.

Audio Visual
and Food & Beverage

Last minute changes in these two areas can be critical to the creation of a sophisticated event that will impact your audience for some time.

We will undertake to cover both key components, touching on specific issues related to working with the venue, AV team, content, food & beverage, décor, entertainment and union services. 

The topic is serious but there will be room for excitement as this venue will be hosting the fifth annual Event Technology Showcase at the same time and you will have a chance to experience cutting edge audio visual technology while you network with your peers.

This course has been submitted to the CIC for 1.0 CE, Domain G: Meeting and Event Design, and is still under review.
