In this webinar, top meetings-industry expert Jeff Hurt gives you all-new power to keep outdated thinking from sabotaging your annual conference—and your association’s future. Step by step, you’ll discover how to avoid six “success disrupters” and put new speaker, content, and technology strategies in place to keep attendance and revenues growing.

Breakthroughs start with breaking those old rules. Forget the conventional wisdom about what an annual event should be. Instead of just a meeting, you’ll learn nextgen conference “hacks” that create a one-of-a-kind forum that sends attendees home ready to see immediate ROI from high-value new skills, contacts and attitudes. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own specific questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now to trade “business as usual” for breakthrough conference results, including how to rethink:

1. The role of the customer—and planning your conference to reflect and support it
2. The attendee experience—how to create a forum no Web-based community can match
3. The function of content—it’s not the same as it was even a year ago
4. The job of the speaker—the evolving role of experts, topics and thought-leadership
5. The process of education—avoiding outdated formats and content 
6. Technology—how to power up engagement before, during and after the event

Nowhere will you find clearer guidance on how to turn new thinking into new attendance and revenue for your annual meetings.
