On the SpotIf you could organize any event or meeting, which one would it be?

“The annual meeting of the World Economic Forum. This high-profile gathering stimulates global economic policy and procedure, all of which directly affect our lives. The essential purpose of each meeting, coupled with the unique logistical challenges, would give the meeting planner a wonderful combination of professional and personal satisfaction.”
Oren Jaffe, CMP
Director of Meeting Services

“As I work in a high-tech company, I would like to get away from that world for a while and organize the annual Pet Expo, which is a showcase for pet-goods suppliers. I love animals. I have two dogs, a cat, some fish and a cockatiel who talks. I would like the cockatiel to give me some advice about meeting planning, but so far he remains silent on the subject.”

“Surprisingly, my choice has nothing to do with classical music. I would love to stage the halftime show at the Super Bowl. Preferably, it would be the Jets vs. the Giants. The planning logistics of this event are mind-boggling.”
Stephen H. Alter
Meetings Manager
