WELLNESS IN THE WORKPLACE

Following MPIGNY's first-ever ARnival, here's an
overview of what VR and AR are all about to get you
thinking about their application in meetings.

Ranked as one of the Top 10 most stressful jobs (right behind

what we do and keep coming back for more. Fortunately,
burnout is no longer the price we must pay for success.

be intimidating. And worldly attendees have likely already been.

BY AMY DREW THOMPSON

HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT

I recently spoke with a team of rock-star event profs. Their
meetings earned high-fives across the board for revenue,
attendee engagement and satisfaction. But there was a
problem: They routinely overlooked small meeting spend.
