Then, you won't want to miss the Meeting Professional International Chicago Area Chapter [MPI-CAC] annual educational conference, called EdCon, on November 14.
Disclosure: I serve on MPI-CAC's MarComm committee as a liaison to the EdCon planning team. And, I will be speaking at EdCon about Networking in 3D - more about that in another post.
Having seen the amount of planning and effort going on behind the scenes, I know that MPI-CAC EdCon is a conference that will dramatically upgrade your contact list and immediately sharpen your skills. You'll be all set for a strong start in 2014!
