• What to Expect at SPiNCon 2015

SPiN:Senior Planners Industry Network is the world’s largest association of senior-level planners (those with 10-plus years of experience). The network offers two membership levels along with branch events around the country, such as online learning opportunities (SPiN:Labs and SPiN:Roundtables) and virtual hosted buyer appointments. We pride ourselves as being an association by planners and for planners.

Our fifth annual conference, SPiNCon, is an award-winning annual event that is 100 percent about the whole person with a life outside of name badges. SPiNCon offers educational opportunities with three distinctive tracks focusing on the planner’s “Brain, Body and Being,” and discusses current needs, frustrations and opportunities. There will be small discussion circles led by experts and peers on life challenges. We’ll also have activities to stimulate the whole person, including an off-site outing.

SPiNCon is one of the few conferences that limits supplier participation to 33 percent of overall attendance, allowing greater relationship building throughout the conference. SPiNCon’s Virtual Hosted Buyer Program is the industry’s only hosted buyer program that takes place before the conference, creating working relationships and contacts prior to attending.

SPiNCon 2015 takes place November 15-17 at the Hilton Chicago/ Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center. For more information and to register, visit spincon.spinplanners.com.

 

Catherine Jensen learned about meetings and events as a preschool teacher planning bike-a-thon fundraisers for 3- to 5-year-olds. She currently is the communications manager for SPiN: Senior Planners Industry Network.

At ARTFEEL, the entire community of The Woodlands is encouraged to take the stage. 

 

Imagine a playground for event professionals–where there’s no pressure to be somewhere or to stick to an agenda—and you’ve got Haute Dokimazo, HD for short. “There’s a time and place where education needs to happen, but we also, as senior event managers, sometimes need to talk to each other,” says Liz Lathan, chief experience officer at Haute Dokimazo.
