The Healthcare Convention & Exhibitors Association recently released its latest white paper, The Landscape of 1:1 Meetings in the Healthcare Events Industry.  

This white paper was researched and produced by Jifflenow, a sales advancement platform for the event industry.  

This document explores the different kinds of 1:1 meetings, their importance in a healthcare, medical device, or pharmaceutical company’s Strategic Meetings Management Program (SMMP) and the best practices involved in planning, organizing, and analyzing these interactions.

As part of TSNN’s Research Series, we currently are collecting survey responses from show organizers for the Event Technology Trends & Future Outlook study.

The Meetings Mean Business Coalition had a busy 2016 advocating to prove the value of the meetings industry, and 2017 looks to be even busier, as MMB continues to push existing initiatives forward and launch new ones.

“Meetings Mean Business continues to grow as a coalition, attracting new supporters and elevating the industry,” said Richard Harper, MMB co-chair and HelmsBriscoe executive vice president.

It was retail as far as the eye could see inside Jan. 15-17 the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.

The National Retail Federation (NRF) opened its doors to 35,000 industry members for the 2017 Retail BIG Show. This year, well-known figures in fashion and retail, including ABC “Shark Tank’s” Daymond John, NBA Basketball Player Kobe Bryant and Astronaut Captain Scott Kelly.

The show caters its content to large brands, as well as small businesses and covers all areas of retail needs from operations to technology to marketing. 

Three years after Nashville’s Music City Center was built, the local Convention Center Authority just approved to expand the venue.

The center now has a $19.9 million construction budget to build a new food and beverage outlet and expand the Exhibit Hall and Davidson Ballroom concourse space.
