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
