During Smart Meetings’ one-day event in Dallas, meeting attendees learned about industry topics and trends, networked during one-on-one business appointments and dined on farm-to-table cuisine at The Highland Dallas. The chic urban property is located in the middle of shopping, dining and entertainment at Mockingbird Station. Attendees received a tour of the midcentury modern hotel, which offers 198 guest rooms and 13,490 sq. ft. of meeting space.
Michael Dominguez, senior vice president for MGM Resorts International, gave a presentation on the current status of the ever-changing meetings industry. He took a look at unstable economic factors, RevPar projections and how to move forward in 2016. Dominguez also addressed Wi-Fi at meeting venues and questions that every planner should be asking.
Attendees discovered how to become purpose-driven leaders and make company culture a priority from author, speaker and advocate Cary Broussard. She told the audience that fostering a positive workplace can also increase client, employee and partner loyalties, which in turn drives profits. Broussard is the founder of Broussard Global Communications, a consulting firm that launches brands forward to reach decision-makers and influencers.
