The Professional Convention Management Association currently is hosting its largest Convening Leaders annual meeting. Although the organization hasn’t released the official attendance figures for the Boston gathering yet, president and CEO Deborah Sexton confirmed that the total attendance will exceed the previous record of 3,751, the figure for both the 2012 meeting in San Diego and the 2013 gathering in Orlando. In addition, more than 600 people registered to attend the event virtually, added Sexton, who expects the total digital attendance to number around 1,000. The organization is live-streaming 21 hours' worth of sessions this year.
