This is where event professionals take their orange water wings off. While attendees are experimenting with emerging tools in the deep end of digital technology, countless meeting planners are waiting in the shallow end. They cling to PowerPoint, stupid-phones and tools with expiration dates that were past their prime in 2006. The goal of The Meeting Pool makes it easy to dunk your head underwater and open your eyes to see new possibilities for meeting planning – - without the sting. What will you see? How-to guides. Honest reviews from like-minded meeting professionals. Hand-holding tutorials to guide you through the whos, whats and hows of the latest solutions that can revolutionize your next event. Of course, going to the pool doesn’t mean you have to jump right in, and The Meeting Pool lets you linger on the side where you can join in conversations with your colleagues and get comfortable with the next generation of meeting technology. And the answer to your next question is yes. There is a pool bar. You just might find our leadership team sitting there on a Friday.
