Strategy: team, motivation, innovation, action, vision, development, ideas, leadership, planningAs a network of On-Site Meeting and Event Professionals, we strive to serve as an industry resource and share with you, ideas, strategies and topics that are relevant to you, your life and your career.  If you haven’t visited our blog recently, we invite you to do so and engage, share ideas, make comments and discuss topics with us as part of a casual, fun dialogue which can be enlightening and educational.

Our audience extends to all areas within our industry including meeting planners, vendors, hoteliers and travel specialists. It also welcomes professionals from outside our industry who have an interest in what we do. Our blog is a place where hopefully you will find a sense of camaraderie with your peers. Because so many meeting planners work independently telecommuting from home offices, the world in which they work can seem a bit isolated. Here you will find a like-minded group of people who will challenge you to think, learn and grown.

Coming togetherIn our blog, you can find detailed information on the steps that are required to earn a CMP designation. We can provide you with tricks of the trade about how to best run your tradeshow booth or provide you with the key questions you need to ask when checking your vendor’s references. If you want to hear from a leader in our industry who shares her knowledge of why you most certainly do not want to become an on-site meeting professional, you’ll find it here. We’re honest and we want to provide you with information about what’s going on in our industry from all angles.

We know you’ve got something worthwhile to contribute as well. As a seasoned meeting professional, your experiences whether positive or challenging serves as a helpful guide for lessons to be learned. Sharing stories can help us feel connected in different ways. One story can make you chuckle while reading about a funny experience and another can provide insight on how to achieve a positive outcome when faced with a challenging situation.

Would you like to contribute to our blog and share your wisdom and/or wit on a relevant topic? We recommend posts be between 500-1,000 words in length and do not solicit business or blatantly sell services. For consideration, please send blog submissions or any blog ideas you’d be interested in reading about along to Cara O’Neill @ coneill@gcgeventpartners.com.

It is our hope to continually make this blog post an enriching resource for you. We value your input, ideas and support and hope you visit and engage with us…. often.
