Meet Connect Association's latest 40 Under 40 class. Event professionals are the ultimate puzzle solvers. To most, the idea of putting together a set of dates, a venue, a program, a speaker lineup, an education schedule, food and beverage orders, audiovisual packages, marketing materials and more is overwhelming, to say the least. Then there’s the whole part about actually getting people to attend. But somehow, there are individuals who piece it all together perfectly, executing events that are not only educational and have ROI for their associations, but that participants enjoy. There’s an art to it all, and one that commands respect. We are proud to introduce Connect Association’s 2017 40 Under 40 class, who we’ve officially dubbed “Artists of Assembly." We can’t wait to see what they dream up next.
