Suppliers and meeting and event planners from around Colorado gathered at the Front Range Trade Show to network and book business. Destination Colorado’s 22nd annual event happened on Dec. 5 at The Hangar at Stanley, located in Aurora’s Stanley Marketplace. The association’s annual meet - ing was immediately before the trade show, upstairs at The Infinite Monkey Theorem.

Consumer behavior expert and author Shawna Suckow, CMP, shared her industry insights during the Meeting Planners International (MPI) Michigan Chapter’s annual Mid-Winter Symposium and Silent Auction in February.

Suckow’s “Meetings 3.0” session focused on the evolution of technology, culture and generations that have led to changes in what audiences now demand and how planners must react to those changes. Her afternoon presentation assessed event practices that need to be disregarded because many of them no longer effectively serve planners or their clients. shawnasuckow.com/blog
