I may not be your nerdy best friend; however, I was pleased to have the opportunity to partner with Destination Michigan earlier this year to help facilitate the 2013 Michigan Meetings Expo. During that event, we asked both planners and suppliers alike to share with us their favorite resources (e.g., technology tools, apps, programs, websites, blogs, books and articles).
Following is what they shared with us (in alphabetical order by category):
- Outlook calendar
- Convention & Visitors Bureaus
- Convention calendars
And if you haven’t already, please consider attending the 2013 Showcase of Ideas (where you’re sure to walk away with even more great ideas like these). Scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 6, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Eagle Eye Golf Club in Lansing, this year’s program features a keynote presentation titled “Leading in Style” by leader development specialist Allison McClintick.
You’ll note this event is free to direct meeting and event planners. Additionally, exhibitors who register before Oct. 1 will save $100. I hope to see you there!
