Current Issue - April 2014
The eight industry leaders profiled in our April magazine—including Cvent CEO Reggie Aggarwal, pictured on the cover—have many qualities in common, but perhaps none is more important than their emphasis on hard work. “You have to be persistent and you have to work hard. You don’t have to be the brightest," Aggarwal says. Elsewhere in the magazine, readers will find a look at 10 notable executive retreats, a column about the Convention Industry Council's updated report on the economic significance of meetings, international features with information to help plan a U.K. meeting, and profiles of such domestic destinations as San Francisco, Miami and Houston.
Smart Meetings is a publication covering meetings industry news, including expert opinions and interviews, topical articles, coverage of domestic and international destinations and venues, and feature stories on corporate, incentives, government and association meetings.
