“I enjoy putting on the opening and closing banquets for our convention. This year, 1,200 people attended the events, which were held at Disney-MGM Studios in Orlando.”

“I enjoy organizing education seminars. Our trade show and exhibition includes approximately 20 seminars; the speakers are interesting, and I learn a lot. At the moment, the hot topic is chronic wasting disease, which affects deer and wild game.”

“To be honest, I don’t enjoy organizing any of them, as I do not like dealing with hotels. Rates still are too high, despite the market. I have enjoyed some of the events we’ve had abroad. Recently, we were at the Hotel Arts in Barcelona. Their rate was $99.”
