Not everyone has a million-dollar budget and can offer million-dollar dreams for their clients. Depending on the meeting or client, you may have to get crafty in finding space and a destination that is functional and budget savvy! In the event industry, we are always searching for that perfect venue for our clients. Making their dreams come into focus while doing everything we can to think outside of the box for a truly original idea. Here are a couple of unique and cost-effective venue ideas to consider when booking your next meeting.
The Incentive for Excellence
Dear SITE SoCal Family,
Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017, a fresh look, and a new adventure. I am delighted to be part of this innovative chapter of industry professionals. Our chapter thrived in 2016, and in 2017 we will continue to raise the bar for our events, education, and networking. Our successes are consistently acknowledged not only by other SITE chapters, but by travel and event organizations around the world. And it is easy to see why—it is because of you, our dedicated members.
So this year we are focusing on YOU!
Our Theme for 2017 is REVEAL YOUR STORY
Dear SITE SoCal members,
We are at that time of the year when we start looking for new members to join the SITE SoCal board for 2017. As the largest chapter in the SITE community, we are proud of our accomplishments to date and feel fortunate to have the strength and support of such enthusiastic and dedicated members.
We have just entered the chapter in the annual SITE awards for Excellence Awards in the areas of Special Events, Membership and Education. Just as a reminder, we won Chapter of the Year in in 2015 and 2005, and the following awards for excellence: Special Event in 2014, 2013, 2011, 2009, 2006, 2004 & 2002, and Membership in 2012.
I am personally committed to finding ways to recognize our board members for the contributions they make, which include developing leadership skills and education. Being on the board does take time, of course; from experience, however, I believe that the benefits of the opportunities that arise from being part of the chapter leadership team outweigh the time commitment.
