 Has Someone Stolen Your Event Identity? “Badgeless” is an organized movement of individuals who choose not to register (or pay the steep cost for a badge) for the annual SXSWi nerd fest in Austin, Texas. (Seehttp://forkintheroadblog.com/archives/is-the-sxswi-badgeless-movement-a-sign-of-things-to-come-in-the-event-industry/.) Instead, its members connect via social media to enjoy the many free (and non-sanctioned) activities that have grown up around the main conference and trade show. Join the #eventprofs chat on Monday, March 22 at 12 ET for a discussion on how to deal with groups that are gaining value from your event, but not paying and how to get everyone into the event "tent."

April 5 12-1pm EDT/9-10 am PST @ASegar and @BBJLinen

Planning for an Event with a Demanding Client.

 

Questions that were discussed:

 - How do you define a prospective or current client as “demanding”?
 
 - When is it OK to say “NO” to a client that is demanding?

 

 - What is your best response to a ‘demanding client/prospect’ that you would like to say “no” to?

 - Where do you draw the line – at what point is it more beneficial to walk away from the sale and the prospect/client?

 - How do you respond to a client who threatens to take business away if you are not willing to “bend” for them?

 - What is your best tip on dealing with a prospect/client who has “champagne taste” but a “beer budget”?

 Indispensible #eventtech. This will be the second "Beta test" of simulcasting the chat via Google On Air, and will broadcast live on YouTube, then auto-saved for posterity. The topic will be a look into my event tech bag of tricks, and I hope you will share some of your kit as well. What's your favorite app that helps you with your job? That one thing you have to have in your kit or you feel unprepared?

Well, it's almost my birthday, so let's talk about our Meeting and Events Wish Lists!  What's that one thing you wish you could snap your fingers and make happen?  Categories include people, hotels, venues, technology, and more.  Who knows? Maybe another #eventprof out there knows how to make your wish come true!

 

Also I hope nobody minds that I gave these tables a little more breathing room.

Inspired by a blog post by our own @asegar, let's try to come up with the worst possible meeting experience, in an attempt to learn more about what makes a good one.  Follow the life of the worst destination conference ever: transportation, meeting production, trade show floor, and evening events.
