Sample a wide array of various beer styles (and even a couple of surprise alternate adult beverages), meet the owners and brewers with exclusive behind-the-scenes tours and tastings, and enjoy our hilarious, professionally made movie, ‘Gary Gose Gump’ - a beer-themed parody of Forrest Gump that tells our story - as we roll from brewery to brewery.

Overcoming Digital Anxiety: LIVE with Grit Productions

Friday, November 5

Let’s face it, digital and hybrid meetings are here to stay – period! The significant reach, accessibility, inclusiveness, and time/travel cost savings they generate are now business best practices, so delivering a successful and sustainable digital event experience is essential to your growth and value as an industry professional.

Meet the strategists, technical experts, and event producers behind MPI’s Global Meetings Industry Day and Chapter Business Summit as they pull back the curtain to reveal the resources, strategies, and solutions to help you overcome digital anxiety (yes, it’s a real thing!).

Designing meaningful “people-centered” digital meeting experiences requires both technical and engagement approaches to be successful as a meeting and event industry professional in our “NOW” Normal, including:

  1. Identifying attendee “cognitive load” and digital learning design
  2. Understanding the key considerations for successful digital event budgeting
  3. Overcoming the digital “problem space” to improve reach, ROI, and attendee satisfaction

Panelists are:

  • Kelly Massey, Managing Partner, Grit Productions & Expositions
  • Charlotte Miles, VP Production, Grit Productions & Expositions

Q&A session with the experts afterward.

Moderated by Steven G. Foster, CMP, Managing Partner, Foster+Fathom
