summitOur Next-Level Events Summit this week at The Seagate in Delray Beach gave attendees a glimpse of the possibilities that are open to all of us to take our events to a higher level.

summitEducational sessions included a keynote session by Doug Binder, author of Gather, on the emotions created by events in attendees’ personal lives and how to channel them into business events; a step-by-step ROE methodology presented by Haute’s Head of Creative Development Jordan Valdez; Google’s Global Events Solutions, Strategic Lead Megan Henshall exploring how to accommodate neurodiverse attendees; and a wrap-up session by Play With a Purpose’s Sharon Fisher where attendees not only learned more about business games but got to play a few.

Other highlights included an exclusive opening reception at The Seagate’s private Beach Club, complete with a Diff sunglasses amenity from Global Gifting, beachwear supplied by The Palm Beaches and entertainment including magic tricks by AP Magic’s Alan Paoletti; and a lovely lunch at the nearby Opal Grand Resort & Spa.
