Calling all logistics lovers! (We realize that “love” may be a strong word here!) Regardless of what type of event is being planned, logistics play a major role in its success. These intricate details are the glue that keep your event together. While it’s easy to stick to traditional meeting rooms, there is nothing wrong with stepping out of the box to wow your clients! Join us for this interactive educational experience that demonstrates the unique opportunity to host events anywhere! Taking place at the National Museum of African American Music, hear from industry experts who share their knowledge on creativity, logistics, and risk mitigation to curate unforgettable events. Immerse yourself in Nashville’s largest music scene that pays homage to African-American music. Experience how you can honor a venue’s culture and rich history by intertwining it like treasured gems in your next event! The best venue for your next event may surprise you!

Key learning objectives:

  1. How to overcome venue & budget restrictions by leveraging creativity and unique agendas
  2. How to use logistical skills to accomplish multiple goals while creating a successful event experience
  3. Identify key factors that planners and suppliers need to consider when planning events in unique venues? (I.e. load in dock, distance from load in to event space, additional budget requirements to cover labor, etc.)
  4. Instead of using spaces to only meet and/or eat, learn how to create events that allow attendees to explore the venue and capture a memorable experience 
  5. How incorporating activations (such as scavenger hunts) can create a memorable networking experience for attendees
