This magazine is a tribute to the supplier partners who propel the meetings industry forward. Learn the motivational forces behind the 2023 Catalyst Award winners and what they have planned next. We also take an ethical look at what it means to meet in the wake of disaster. We outline what questions to ask and how to make go, no-go decisions in a complicated world. One decision that will always be straightforward is the desire to meet in some of the classic musical cities around the country. If you are meeting over the holiday season, we have you covered when it comes to trending décor and activities and what services your hotel has in store. Whatever you do, we hope your holiday season is event-ful and thank you for spending it with the Smart Meetings community.
