What is the No. 1 challenge facing the meetings industry?

“Creating new programs for the membership and encouraging them to register earlier. We get the numbers, but I wish they wouldn't leave it to the 11th hour to register.” “Generating useful registration reports from a single-capture active directory database.”

“Having colleagues and superiors understand—and trust—what I do. I live in the movie ‘Groundhog Day,’ where I am having the same conversations with finance and the powers-that-be over and over again.”
