Cancellation Communications: How to Unplan a Meeting | Events Management | Scoop.it

Resorts along the eastern seaboard and Gulf Coast are delighted with last week’s news from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reporting a 60 percent chance of a below-normal hurricane season in 2018. That’s a big change from May when the forecast only had a 25 percent chance for a quiet season, but nobody is out of the woods yet. NOAA’s August 9 update still predicts four to seven hurricanes before the season ends in November.

How to De-Stress in 20 Minutes or Less | Events Management | Scoop.it

Stress is something we all experience at some point. It comes with having a job that demands attention and requires focusing on the tiniest of details. It’s easy to get lost in your own head and view the big picture as an enormous picture. Some people brag about their stress—they talk about what they have to accomplish, how little sleep they’re getting and so on.

Insight, Intentionality, and Intimacy

Insight, Intentionality, and Intimacy | Events Management | Scoop.it

It has long been understood that most business or professional conferences and trade shows have been about the 3 C’s: content, commerce, and community. These three legs of the stool for big, national events made sense. First, we aggregate an array of education and programming known as content. Next, we host a football-field-sized trade show with booths and let attendees/“shoppers” wander, looking for the right company that has what they’re looking for. And last, we’ve seen it as our job to bring a community of like-minded people together in the hope that the right people would find each other and build or renew a professional relationship.

Top Tips: Stagnating Delegate Attendance | Events Management | Scoop.it

Delegate attendance: One of the main topics in the highly competitive world of associations where uncertainty continues to grow.

Are Networking Events Worth It for Your Business? | Events Management | Scoop.it

Networking events are always a useful way to get people to come together and form professional and personal bonds. As with any other event, though, there is a way you should approach the function.

Take a Page Out of Jeff Bezos’ Meetings Book

Take a Page Out of Jeff Bezos’ Meetings Book | Events Management | Scoop.it

Jeff Bezos of Amazon banned the PowerPoint. It’s a bold move, especially when it is the standard. But going through photos, graphs and data can be, well…boring. Meetings are difficult enough, let alone meetings that revolve around clicking slide after slide. Consider pulling a Bezos, or at the least, incorporating something unique to keep morale and spirits high.

Associations have a great amount of content to share and yet members and prospects often feel that they are not getting as much interesting nor relevant information as expected. Knowing the purpose, value and intended audience of your content is the cornerstone of a strong content marketing strategy.
