Today’s episode is near and dear to our heart! We are live from ILEA Live! Joining us today are some of the best and brightest in the industry.  As you probably guessed, it’s all about ILEA Live and how to grow as an event prof. But! Before we jump into that I think it’s important we take a step back and go over ILEA. In case you have been living under a rock, International Live Events Association is a thriving association for global creative event professionals. They provide networking, education, professional development and so much more to their members.  

What is ILEA Live?

ILEA Live is a yearly conference held for the association members to meet in one place, network, grow professionally and stay informed on what is happening globally. It’s not event planning 101 but a very in-depth dive into live events. What also makes the conference unique is that it is intimate, there are not thousands and thousands of event profs at the conference allowing a setting that attendees can truly experience the conference and interact with even the biggest speakers! Today with the help of our iconic panel Dana Macaulay of Sonoma County Vintners, Tera Greenwood of Service Systems Associates, and Jen Poyer CSEP of Catalina Island Conservancy we will cover all that embodies ILEA Live. We will learn more about that, and how the event educates its leaders, feedback and tactical advice from our panel and so much more! If you have ever been interested in attending ILEA Live you can’t miss this episode!
