AGENDA

8:00 AM - 8:30 AM - Registration/Networking Breakfast

8:30 AM - 10:00 AM - Program

DESCRIPTION

How do planners adapt to changing circumstances long after a contract has been signed?  The city and properties were selected and contracted years out.  What steps do you take when stakeholders have made it clear that changes are needed? The scope of the conference is different, perhaps the program has grown, been reduced in size, or the branding is entirely different.  Has your organization decided to go in a new direction affecting everything that has already been contracted? 

Join us as our panel discusses best practices on how to deal with venues, contractors, stakeholders, and internal staff to keep everyone happy and moving forward to a successful event.

Some of the areas/topics we’ll cover:

  • Shaking up the conference!  Redesigning and rebranding a component  of the conference
  • Helping internal staff and stakeholders understand the financial impact of dealing with significant changes
  • Dealing with controversial legislation that violates your association’s code of ethics
