Meeting planners face many unique job challenges. For many planners, the best way to stay connected to trends and venues is to attend educational meetings themselves. One great source for events tailored to the specific needs of professional event planners is Bright Business Media, LLC, publisher of Smart Meetings magazine and host of several Smart Events throughout the year.

The company’s Smart Events build on the concepts presented in Smart Meetings by letting professionals learn more about their trade in an interpersonal setting. At one-day and three-day Smart Events, planners can network with peers, meet with venue representatives, and attend education settings. In addition, the company offers Smart Fams, which are exclusive opportunities for planners to gain in-depth experience at a particular venue.

While planners focus on managing events for others, they should not neglect the value of attending career-focused events themselves. By doing so, meeting planners can gain new insights to help them better manage event logistics and learn about cutting-edge themes and activities to create compelling programs.
