The events industry is always changing, and event professionals need to know the latest trends, tips, and techniques to be competitive. In fact, our customers told us in our Event Professionals Career Survey that one of the top five resources they need is more training.
That’s one of the reasons we hold our annual EventCamp conference for sales and events professionals. Our EventCamp conference on April 28 in New York City will bring together industry leaders and subject matter experts to share best practices and insider tips to elevate the work and careers of event professionals.
Career-related sessions at EventCamp this year include How to Be a Happier, More Productive Event Manager with Michelle O’Hala, Director, Restaurant Group Sales/Entertainment & Cabana Sales for the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and panels on Old School vs. New School Sales Techniques and Women’s Leadership in the Hospitality Industry.
Can’t wait until our 2020 conference to pick up new career tips? Check out these videos from previous EventCamp conferences for advice on how to advance your career as an event professional:
