Here is a little snip:

How You Can Help?

  • If you have a meeting that attracts 500 or more attendees and you hire professional speakers and/or secure industry speakers, please take this survey.
  • It will take about 10 minutes to complete.
  • Share and recommend this survey with your colleagues.

We’re not sending out a big email blast for this so any tweets, blog posts, mentions or shouts from the mountain top are appreciated.

What’s In It For You?

  • We will interpret and share the information through our blog that will be helpful for the industry and our readers.
  • Aggregate data will be shared with all participants who request it.
  • You could be a lucky winner of one of five $50 gift cards.
  • You can be part of identifying the trends and help improve the industry.
