“Reflecting on the last 35 years of planning meetings and events, so much stands out. It’s amazing how the industry has changed.

I can recall hand-registering thousands of attendees for an event as their paperwork rolled off a noisy fax machine, and planning major conferences without the benefit of a smartphone, tablet or even the Internet.

In 35 years, my one-woman party planning business in Boca Raton, Fla., has evolved into a multi-faceted, award-winning corporate event planning firm with over 30 employees in eight cities worldwide.”
