Myers will discuss event revitalization strategies and the leadership revolution in the meetings and events industry
ARLINGTON, VA September 22, 2017 – Seasoned meetings and events executive, Barbara A. Myers, CAE, Chief Executive Officer of Arlington, VA-based IMN Solutions, will lead two influential sessions at IMEX America being held October 10-12 in Las Vegas, NV.
Myers’ two timely and highly interactive sessions will focus on strategies and tactics to successfully navigate through the rapidly changing landscape of the meetings and events industry. Myers’ sessions are entitled “Innovate or die: revitalization strategies for your events” and “Leadership revolution: executive transitions driving change.” According to Myers, “The team at IMN Solutions believes IMEX America is one of the best forums for the spread of new ideas and cutting edge concepts. We are honored to be contributing to the success of the exhibition by providing thought leadership on such significant topics shaping the future of our industry.”
With over 3,200 exhibitors and 5,500 attendees from 130 countries, IMEX America is held annually at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, and serves as the USA’s largest tradeshow focusing on incentive travel, meetings and events. According to IMEX America, in addition to the tradeshow component, they offer “brilliant speakers, fresh ideas and continuous inspiration.”
Joining the IMN team in Las Vegas will be Jack Sammis, IMN Solutions’ Founder and Chairman. “IMEX America is a cornerstone of our annual outreach and education. The combined synergies of the attendees and exhibitors make it a ‘can’t miss’ week for our organization,” Sammis said.
“Innovate or Die” takes place Wednesday, October 11th at 1:30pm and will focus on the complexity of the exhibition industry with increased competition, marketing demands and technological advancements. The session will cover best practices for evaluating relevancy, a “how to” approach for implementation and revitalization strategies and real world examples. This session is approved by the International Live Events Association (ILEA) for events professionals.
Myers’ “Leadership Revolution” talk takes place on Thursday, October 12th at 11:00am and will focus on the seismic demographic shift in the workplace. Millennials have replaced boomers as the largest living generation in the US, and are rapidly transitioning into leadership roles left vacant by their predecessors. Attendees will discuss the resulting changes in organizational design, convergence, and branding with their peers.
