This event will be highly interactive so that attendees will have opportunity to ask questions and exchange ideas with both experienced co-champions as well as each other.

The goal is to "draw back the curtains" and expose the mechanisms that work together to create a great event.

Attendees should walk away feeling that creating a forum is both worthwhile and highly doable.

Whether for MDG, as part of one's career, or one's life, eventually almost everybody will have the opportunity to plan and execute an important event.

Invest an evening to learn to do it well.

A light dinner will be provided.
