Meetings & Conventions | Three of the Best Speakers You'll Hear This Year

meetingsconventionstopthree


As we start off this exciting new year, we can’t help but reflect over what a huge year 2015 was for the meeting and events industry. On a more personal level, 2015 was one of our biggest years and this next year looks even brighter. We kicked 2016 off with a record-breaking January which was also the most successful month in the history of Premiere! With every victory, big or small, we like to take a step back to learn how to do things even better in the future and we’re grateful for other meeting and event professionals who do the same. Meetings-Conventions.com has been putting this very idea into practice since 1965 while helping event planners and associations excel at what they do through their informative content and in-depth analyses. 

In a recent research poll, they asked meeting/event planners a really great question: “Who is the single best speaker you have heard in the past two years?” We are proud to announce that three of our Premiere Exclusive partners were named among the terrific responses: Jon Acuff, Vince Poscente and Col Mark Tillman! All three speakers have been beyond valuable in our partnership with them over the years and consistently receive glowing reviews following any event that they have the opportunity to be a part of. You can browse the research poll and full list here and here respectively. Thank you again for a wonderful year. We look forward to many more.
