New: Citywide 101
ASAE & Center to Offer How-To Class
The American Society of Association Executives
& The Center for Association Leadership will launch a
Convention Center Operations program next year, addressing the
logistics of planning a citywide event.
The educational workshops, which will be held at the Boston
Convention and Exhibition Center (March 22-24) and the Colorado
Convention Center (June 7-9), are designed to assist planners
making the move from hotel to convention center.
Program topics will include working with CVBs, using multiple
hotels and venues, handling a center’s exclusive and preferred
providers, union vs. nonunion facilities, cost differences between
convention centers and hotels, and scheduling freight elevators and
Course sessions are restricted to 30 attendees each and will
cost $495 for members, $595 for nonmembers.
