    ISES Live 2013!

    1148855_587653564611582_49083345_nISES Live was a Success in The Bahama’s!

    Here are a few different point of view on the event!  A great time was had by ALL!

    Our 2013 chapter President Adam Sloyer wrote on his company blog,  Sequence Events about ISES Live:

    Reflections from ISES Live 2013 (exerpt)

    Over the past three days I had the opportunity to attend the International Special Event Society’s (ISES) annual conference. In the past, EventWorld (as it was formerly known) was fairly straightforward as conferences go, employing somewhat of a cookie-cutter approach: general session/keynote–> static breakouts/presentations, rinse and repeat. Along with the standard format also came a standard mission, which was speakers presenting information and imparting their wisdom on attendees. The idea being, of course, that presenters are the experts and therefore should be the primary source of knowledge, content and information. In truth this is the model of most conferences, and there is nothing inherently wrong with the approach.

    This year, however, ISES decided that it was time for a change, and that the education and format was ready for an upgrade. So equipped with a new name — ISES Live — and a sunny destination (Paradise Island) ISES debuted a brand new conference that was a welcome approach.
