HGA Attends Experient EnVision
Experient is a global meeting and events management company with over 1,500 employees offering their client’s site and venue selection, program management, and consulting, just to name a few. They have been a long time partner of Hosts Global Alliance because of our high quality services. Each year they hold EnVision, an internal conference for their planners and suppliers. This year the conference was held in Dallas, Texas from March 7th – 11th, and the theme was Imagine. It focused on the goal of getting to know Experient’s Meeting Event, Project, and Strategic Account Managers, in addition to the National Account Managers. EnVision was a successful event offering education on their clients’ programs, networking, and development of future business. A town hall meeting was held with David Peckinpaugh, President of Maritz Travel Company and Experient, and Michael Guerriero, Division President of Experient. They answered questions relevant to the current climate of our industry in regards to politics, economics, and the future of meetings. Attending 2016 EnVision was a progressive pursuit for HGA. They started the week with a surprise birthday gathering for me since my birthday was during the conference. They surprised me with balloons, flowers, and great wishes, and it was a great way to kick off a productive week. I have to admit, the attention I got made it easier to be away from home, and I would like to specifically thank my Experient friends for making my birthday so special, as well as for providing HGA with such a strong partnership.
