Meeting Change Goes to Orlando

July 11, 2011

Meeting Change is heading to Orlando!  Although we don’t rule out a little sightseeing at DisneyWorld or some butterbeer at the Harry Potter attraction at Universal, our main reason for going is to share some of our unique expertise in pricing, sustainability and standards with the attendees of the MPI World Education Congress (WEC).

Mariela sometimes describes herself as an “accidental economist”, because many of the courses she took during her MBA were determined by the schedules of her children, and many of those courses were on economics.  Pricing strategies for events was therefore born, and she will share this expertise with the events industry at this conference.  The session, on Monday, July 25,  from 1:30 – 2:30, is Innovative Pricing Strategies, to increase revenue, reduce risk and better match cash flow to expenses.

We are co-presenting two sessions on Tuesday, July 26th.  The first, from 10:30 – 11:30 is a cheeky look at sustainable event standards.  Come join us for The Full Monty:  Standards Exposed to learn about what they are, what they are intended to do and get an idea about when you might want to use them in your own events.

The second session on Tuesday, from 3:00 – 4:00 (last session of the conference!) is Decarbonating Your Events (we debated calling it Why on Earth are Venus and Mars at My Meeting?, but maybe next time).  Come see as we don lab coats and goggles and demonstrate how easy it is to produce carbon dioxide, and how you can minimize the carbon footprint of your events.  We will give you a VERY short science class and bust some common myths.  A great , non-drowsy way to spend your last educational hour!

If you will be at this event and have some specific questions you’d like us to cover at these sessions, contact us at or  See you in Orlando!

    As another “accidental economist”, I am intrigued by the Innovative Pricing Strategies session. Any chance that material will be posted online?
