The Pickled Planner – The Americano

Americano (Cleveland)

Welcome the weekend people.

We meeting and event planners use the term “weekend” pretty loosely. I know that you might be setting up a Conference in Calgary, a Meeting in Montana, or an Incentive in India, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a few hours on a Friday to chill out, throw on some tunes, and take a minute for yourself… really, you can… Unless of course you can’t.

Welcome the weekend people.

We meeting and event planners use the term “weekend” pretty loosely.

One of the biggest concerns with cruise ship events has been the technology. From WiFi to signage and everything in between this guest post by Maureen McKeon helps you navigate what can be strange waters for many meeting and event planners. Read More

The Friday 5 for October 18

Green Meetings and Conferences

Each week I painstakingly scour every last inch of the internet looking for 5 things worthy of a meeting planner’s attention. It could be an article, a service, an app, a review, a video, or a podcast. You simply never know what is going to pop up. I don’t spend much time on each, just a brief synopsis of what is behind the curtain, your interest or curiosity must do the rest. Read More
