Break-out Sessions


  • The Habits of Millennial Travelers

    Professionals 35 and younger are a rising force that we in the meetings, events and travel industries must accommodate in order to succeed. This in-depth discussion will uncover how we can assess and cater to their tastes and expectations — and gain their loyalty for decades to come.


  • #socialwin - Using Social Media Intelligently

    Social Media is about more than “likes” and “shares” and hashtags. Users are becoming more sophisticated by the day; to stay ahead of the curve (and the competition), our social strategies need to evolve as well. Join us for an illuminating session that will challenge the way you think about social media. It’ll be #epic!


  • Data Analytics - Bringing it All Together

    Whether you’re looking to improve the experience of your event’s attendees or control the costs of your meetings or travel programs, unlocking the power of your business data can help you achieve your goals. See how other companies have experienced significant returns by consolidating their data — and how you can do the same.


  • Who’s Afraid of AirBnB? — Meetings and Travel in the Sharing Economy

    Over the last couple years, mobile apps like AirBnB, Uber and Lyft have gone from novelties to truly disruptive technologies. But how will these technologies — and those who use them — impact our industry in the long term? In this expert panel discussion, we’ll envision the future of the sharing economy, and our industry’s place within it.


  • Cheaper on the Web? - Industry Misgivings about the Open Booking Model

    Open Booking — Business Travel News calls it “a buzz phrase that’s caught the imagination of the managed travel industry.” But what is open booking, really? And what are the ramifications and risks of doing away with the rate negotiations, systemic tracking, and compliance and “duty of care” protocols of a managed travel program? This panel discussion — featuring corporate travel managers and hoteliers alike — will delve into this complex issue, sharing their opinions on the potential pros and cons of “unmanaged travel,” and the threat it poses to the transient travel industry.
