Event Planner Roundup – February 25th Edition

Computers are breaking all over the office this week, sometimes I think that they are out to get me. Luckily, I live in Chicago and we are fortunate to have TigerDirect Store and a MicroCenter right down the street from each other. It is like Geek Nirvana……….Clicky Mechanical Keyboard here I come.

While I am off and running, you can grab a cup of coffee, sit back and read a few articles that I think might interest all of you meeting and event pros out there.
