We produce a lot of conferences each year and I absolutely love the production side of them, but it’s nice to be an attendee every now and then. Which is why I’m so excited to attend Event Solutions Conference & Tradeshow March 23-26 hosted at Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. Nice that it’s in my own backyard!
Event Solutions is an event BY Event Producers FOR Event Producers! It’s a time for people to bring their A-game with design, food, decor, entertainment, and education. With sessions during the day that focus on business practices, new technology in the event space, our wellbeing (event producer is the 5th most stressful job of 2014!), branding & marketing, and big event trends for the year, there’s a lot to absorb. Honestly, for every session, there are at least 2-3 presentations I want to attend.
There’s also a huge tradeshow with all of the hottest items from vendors that are relevant to Event Producers. Throughout the expo hall, education stages are set up for live demos and presentations like “Pairing Food Stations with Mini Cocktails” and “Designing and Re-Designing Your Venue”. The geek in me is excited about the Taste of Technology space where I can charge my devices as well as see what’s new in tech. And I can’t wait to check out the lounges and meet other event professionals from all over the world to talk shop.
Outside of the education sessions and expo hall, there are some exciting event opportunities as well. Monday’s lunch sessions offer a “Best of Las Vegas Trends Buffet Competition” or a “Box Lunch Competition”. I’m happy to taste at both and vote on my favorites. There’s also a huge party on Monday night, La Muse, at Bally’s that promises to blow our minds with nine event stations and a full production that has been in the works for a year! Floral, decor, entertainment, food, drink…yes to all of the things!
Event Solutions is paired with Catersource, which brings all of the best professionals in the catering industry together. You know this event will be one that just can’t be missed. Bringing together thousands of event and catering professionals. What could go wrong?
See you next week at #CSES14.
