Does business travel bring out the best or beast in us?

Mon, 27 Aug 2012 21:23:51 +0000

The CEO and senior management at event management company Banks Sadler have produced a series of videos to discuss some of the hottest trends and biggest challenges they’re seeing in event management today, and the impact new technology and social media have had on their events.

I know a lot of conferences are trying to go bagless for environmental reasons, but if you still provide conference bags, or for the exhibitors among us, I thought these examples someone sent me in one of those e-mail forwards were a great way to get your message across in a creative and fun way.

I don’t know what was going on—maybe there was something in the water there yesterday?—but it started when we walked up to [...]

Glass-bottomed high-rise swimming pool–yikes!

Fri, 10 Aug 2012 21:01:03 +0000

This has to be the coolest hotel pool shot I’ve ever seen—it’s of the glass-bottomed pool atop the Holiday Inn Shanghai Pudong Kangqiao in China. I’m not sure if I would love the sense of flying over the city more than I would feel ill at the thought of the same, but what a great [...]
