In case you missed the announcement last week, we launched…
The Meeting Architect Podcast!
For some time now, we have been wondering how we can give back to the conference and meeting industry the knowledge and experiences we have gained through the work that we do. We wanted to find a way that makes it easy for all of us to learn from each other – without taking too much time away from our already busy daily routines.
What is our focus?
The best way we describe it is, a podcast for conference & meeting professionals at all levels, that explores: the people, our challenges, lessons learned, success and how we build the very best experiences.
Who is The Meeting Architect Podcast for?
The role of a meeting planner has evolved over the last several years. There are reasons why it continues to make the Top Ten Most Stressful Jobs list each year: because it has a complex set of skills and responsibilities. This podcast is for those in the business events industry. Whether you are planning a meeting, conference, convention or corporate retreat, the base of each business event requires a strong foundation. As a meeting architect, today’s planner is required to be knowledgeable in an ever-evolving industry.
What Topics Will the Podcast Address?
Each week on our podcast we will touch on various areas, of which the following are just a few:
- Changing the role of an attendee to a participant.
- How a venue increases value to conferences.
- Breaking down the implications of contract clauses.
- How to determine the ROI on an event.
- Introducing you to individuals on both sides of the planning process.

We hope you are as excited as we are to have this new way of getting to know our conference and event industry better – and those Meeting Architects who make it happen! Because this has been such a “passion project” for us, it is perfect timing for us to have launched the Podcast just before Valentine’s Day.
Let us know your thoughts – we want to make sure to serve up the best learning for all of us each week!
