Held at North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh, N.C., The Special Events Company recently debuted the 2017 North Carolina CEO Forum. The planning, logistics and on-site operation of the leadership forum was led for the eighth consecutive year by the Cary-based company. This year’s event was focused mainly on Innovation and Leadership in Healthcare which brought more than 400 CEO’s and executives from organizations and companies around the United States.

There were 15 speakers during the two-day program, which included North Carolina’s Governor, Roy Cooper, and Jack Bailey, president of GlaxoSmithKline. There also was a charitable opportunity incorporated with all of the proceeds directly going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in eastern North Carolina and Teen Cancer America.

The Special Event Company has been a partner with North Carolina CEO Forum since the event’s inception in 2009. For more information regarding the 2017 NC CEO Forum, visit ncceoforum.com

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
