2009 Conferences and Industry Events

There are many annual conferences and conventions for the special events and meetings industry this year.  In fact, there are so many, people will often choose only a couple to attend for the year.  So, how do you know which industry events to attend?  Here are some things to consider.  Where is the event located?  You may want to travel outside your local area in order to meet new people you would not be able to meet any other way.  How much does the event cost in total?  Figure out the complete investment cost including hotel, registration, and more to determine if you have the money.  Get an idea of who is going to be attending the conference.  What companies are going to be exhibiting?  What speakers are they going to have?  Are these companies or speakers people who you need to establish a relationship with?  All of these are important questions to ask before deciding to attend any of the conferences or conventions this year.

Here are some of the industry events and conferences taking place this year.
