Drinks & Debate: The future of Meetings in 2021 and Beyond Promo GraphicWhat will the future hold for meetings and conferences in 2021 and beyond? While no one has a crystal ball, there is no lack of strong - and varying - opinions. Want to be a fly on the wall while a few industry pros, all with unique perspectives, hash out their thoughts on the matter?

Grab your drink of choice and join Teri Carden, Founder of 100Reviews and Creator of the Non Dues-a-Palooza event, Joanna Pineda, CEO & Chief Troublemaker of Matrix Group & BeSpeake, and Gretchen Steenstra, Strategic Consultant, Technology Management of DelCor Technology Solutions, for a lively, free-flowing “drink and debate” happy hour, where they’ll talk candidly about their views on the future of meetings.

Where the conversation will lead, no one knows, but if you know these women, you know it will be good! Pull up a barstool and join the conversation.

About the presenters:

teri (1)Teri Carden is a yoga-pants-wearing, girl geek in normal girl’s clothing. After several years of experience sitting behind the multiple screens at her association marketing and technology gigs, Teri answered a need for associations by building ReviewMyAMS.com, a trusted site for executives to provide end-user reviews of their association management systems (AMS). Teri still manages ReviewMyAMS all while also tackling the day-to-day of 100Reviews, a platform that allows associations to spin up their own review site, managing the digital and marketing teams and sharing the story of 100Reviews at conferences all over the US.
