In Smart Meetings' February issue, we highlight the tales from the front lines and tips for averting disaster in our cover feature, diving into when good meetings go bad. We asked veteran convention center habitués for their real-life, unexpected encounters—and we put together a handy guide for anytime you need to recover.
We are also exploring some stellar destinations: the lip-smacking hospitality of Atlantic City, the updated commonwealth of Virginia, the desert's Silicon Valley in Reno/Tahoe, and so many more. Don't miss the array of articles aimed at arming your planner toolkit with knowledge and strategy, like five strategic ways to build a speaker panel, Valentine's Day-inspired dishes at hotels across the country, Simon Sinek on why the long game matters, a case study surrounding an upscale annual event, and more!
