I sooo enjoyed the experience at The Special Event this year! TSE was held in Chicago from January 13-18. When we first heard “Chicago,” many of us said: ‘Oh no … snow, ice, wind, oh dear!’ But we lucked out on the weather and we had a great time with friends and colleagues from across the country, as well as from Europe and Australia.
The Special Event is a wonderful educational opportunity for everyone in the events industry. I was honored to be invited to speak with Craig and Carol from Craig’s Crew. We gave a class on “Celebrations of Life”( ie: funerals). This is an often un-addressed area of event planning, and one that certainly merits consideration. Our session was well attended, and we had a lively audience with great questions.
TSE always has fun evening events with food and entertainment showcases. It’s a great opportunity to see different venues around the host city, and it makes you want to broaden your client base to do some wonderful destination events.
In 2014, The Special Event will be in Nashville, Tennessee and I hope to see lots of you there!
