Zoom Meeting


The state of the corporate events industry has everyone on edge. But after more than a year of postponements, cancelations, and an abrupt shift to an entirely virtual world of programs and networking, hope is on the horizon. From the board room to the tradeshow floor, in-person events are the lifeblood of many industries and professions, and a slow return to normal is sparking a renewed outlook to begin corporate planning for the second half of the year. But what new challenges will communicators and marketers face in preparing for events in a post-COVID world?

Magdalena Bonnelly, award-winning event expert and owner and founder of Event Strategies, joins IABC Houston on Thursday, April 22 at Noon CDT to tackle these topics and more. She will share tangible tips on how to prepare for meetings – hybrid, virtual or in-person – as well as provide guidance on how to execute technology that will eliminate frustrations, predict attendance and multiply ROI using a time-saving procurement plan.

Regardless of your current stage in the planning process or whether your next event is in-person or virtual, you won’t want to miss this session to gain valuable insights on executing a successful event in 2021 – and beyond!
