With each new year, one of the most common goals for event professionals is to become more involved in professional development and meetings-specific organizations—so what better place to look than LinkedIn?
Here are six LinkedIn Groups that every event professional should look into joining for insider tips, educational articles and an online community that serves as a sounding board.
With more than 375,000 members, this is the largest event professional group on LinkedIn, and it comes from Event Manager Blog.
This is the second-largest event community on LinkedIn with almost 150,000 members. This group is worldwide, but it’s conducted in English. Its “Events Digest” offers the best in news, article tips and videos for the events industry.
Cvent already brings together planners and suppliers in its tool, but this LinkedIn group they created takes that to the next level. Its network of about 21,154 members comes together to discuss the latest industry trends and offer encouragement to one another.
Anyone with a meeting planner career advice question should turn to this LinkedIn Group, which outlines important do’s and don’ts of the job.
This group evolved from the Event Planning & Event Management group to hone in on offering specifically sales and marketing tips for planners in the industry.
Another group geared towards event marketing, this group has almost 20,000 members and offers similar marketing tips.
