While the meetings and events industry may be tricky to navigate, it never hurts to have a friend or two in the business on hand to bounce ideas, share experiences and offer tips and tricks. Enter EideCom CEO Charles Eide and Senior Vice President of Sales Lisa Mendenhall Johnson—hosts of “Meeting Minds,” a new podcast specifically for event professionals. From true entertainment costs to the value of a professional emcee to tips for weeding out hidden fees or producing events with a true purpose, planners can tune in on the way to a site visit or between meetings for helpful insights from industry leaders and innovators on all things events. Stream all three seasons to hear how fellow planners build vendor relationships, navigate contract surprises, perfect event flow and more at meetingminds.org/episodes.

Thankfully it seems as though now organizations are investing budget dollars back into events to boost customer and employee morale.
