Joint Industry Event 2019 – Mastering Stakeholder Management
September 30 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm EDT
Many meeting planners struggle with getting visibility and buy-in from leaders of their organizations. They often feel their role is misunderstood and undervalued. It’s time to change the paradigm! Effective stakeholder management is the key to getting your voice heard and elevating your career.
This session will introduce a simple stakeholder management tool that will immediately change how you handle internal and external stakeholders for your events. During the session we will discuss how to identify and manage stakeholders in different event scenarios.
Brought to you by the MPI Academy and the San Diego State University School of Tourism and Hospitality Management, this session will give you a free sneak peek at the education offered in the Master’s degree program in Meeting and Event Management launching in 2019.

Data-Driven Event Design
We can’t achieve success unless we know how to define it. In today’s world we have no shortage of data or tools to capture it. However, we consistently see events planned without defined objectives and with no measurement tools in place. If we want to be able to define success, we must first understand what data we need, what tools are needed to capture it, and how to leverage it to support event objectives?

- Define event objectives that satisfy key stakeholders

- Donating toiletries (individual or cases) at the September 30 event – we need shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body soaps, facial soaps, lotions, shower caps, personal care items, leftover conference bags.
- Donating money so we may purchase needed supplies – we’ll be collecting at the event.
- Staying after the joint event program to help stuff bags and deliver to Nationwide Children’s.
