Important Takeaways from the Latest Meetings and Events Forecast

A few weeks back, American Express released its 2017 Global Meetings and Events Forecast, based on

extensive surveying in Q3 2016 of corporate meeting planners from businesses around the world. As I

read through the report, there was one survey result from planners located in North America that

Music and Meetings: Perfect Together

In late August, the MTV Video Music Awards took over Madison Square Garden in New York City. The elaborate staging, lighting and choreography made the latest pop-music sensations shine both in their sound and their appearance. In short: The VMAs are designed to be an experience that every participant and spectator remembers, and the event certainly achieved that.
