Association and corporate event and travel professionals are invited to set aside their daily to-do lists and focus on strategic development and sharing knowledge with their peers at dedicated new sessions as part of IMEX America, taking place October 10 – 12 in Las Vegas.“In a rapidly evolving business environment, strong leadership and effective strategic planning has never been more important. Senior industry professionals within associations and corporations obviously occupy unique and powerful positions within the meetings industry, and we know they value high quality opportunities to spend dedicated, focused time together,” explains Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group.
The result are two events dedicated to senior meeting and event professionals working in different sectors of the industry: Designed exclusively for association leaders, the new IMEX Association Leadership Forum takes place the day before IMEX America on Monday October 9. The free program is being created in association with ASAE: The Center for Association Leadership. Through a mix of presentations, peer to peer discussions and an executive level panel, the Association Leadership Forum will address the high level strategic issues that currently challenge leadership teams.
Association professionals will also be able to take part in Smart Monday’s wider education program which includes sessions on purposeful meetings, latest industry trends and personal development.
