    Topic: Think Differently About Your Event Strategy
    Location: Springhill Suites (Topeka) 
    Speaker: Kristine Metter, MS, CAE
    Summary: In person meetings are back! Well, yes and no. The event landscape continues to shift since everything went virtual in 2020, and that attendance bump you experienced over the last year or two may not last. Participants are questioning the value of traveling and exhibitors and sponsors are demanding more return on their investment. Everyone is craving a better experience than the same old breakout panels and exhibit programs we’ve served up for years.

    During this session, you’ll hear highlights of research that outlines young professionals’ emerging demands and expectations. You’ll also discover fresh approaches to crafting a year-round engagement strategy that not only meets people where they are but doesn’t break your budget or stress out your staff. Get ready to redefine what it means to host an unforgettable event!
