Howdy! Last week we hosted InfoComm Live, March 4-6 in Dallas, TX and what a huge success. Rental & Staging business leaders from across North America gathered for two days of networking, strategic business education and fun. The event opened Monday night with a rooftop reception at the ultra modern NYLO hotel in Dallas’s Southside.
Tuesday got off to a strong start with keynote speaker Jim Feldman of Shift Happens®, giving a high-energy presentation on how to not only manage change in your company, but how to create it. He even treated the audience to his own homemade chocolate. Betsy Jaffe, Director of Government Relations, InfoComm International, gave a legislative update and encouraged the audience to make contact with their elected officials to help them understand the economic impact of the live events and meeting industry.
After lunch, Michael Grendon, Partner, CFO Insights, presented on how to create a valuable company in the eyes of potential buyers. He advised attendees on practical steps to make their company more valuable such as documenting job descriptions and processes and creating a deeper organizational chart. Later, Lisa Orell, CPC: The Generations Relations Expert, presented on how the millennial generation is changing the workplace to the benefit of all generations.
Tuesday night, attendees were treated to a BBQ reception at Gilley’s Jack Daniel’s Saloon complete with armadillo races and a mechanical bull.
On Wednesday, Allen Weidman, Chief Sustainability Officer, InfoComm International, gave an update on how new sustainability practices may impact the live events and meeting industry. Micah Solomon closed the event with the high-tech, high-touch customer service workshop focusing on why customer service is so important and how to get it right.
Thanks to all attendees, speakers and sponsors for putting on a great event.
