If you attend one seminar at CS + TSE, this is it! We need to know that in a post-covid world, new rules apply. Trends in design are no longer a one-size-fits-all model. Events are influenced by what is going on in our world, but because life is different for each of us, memorable celebrations can look different too. As event pros, it is our job to design experiences that are unparalleled for our clients, and successful events can be defined in so many ways.

Come hear David Merrell and Susie Perelman speak because no matter what, we all want to stay ahead of the competition. This session will provide new tools and inspiration to do so.
