Conferences and Conventions: A Global Industry | Tony Rogers

Conferences and Conventions: A Global Industry 3rd edition provides a comprehensive introduction to the key elements of the global conference, convention and meetings industry. It examines the industry's origins, structure, economic, social and environmental impacts, education, training and career opportunities, and the industry's future development. It also explores its links with the wider tourism industry, and suggests that there should be a realignment of these links, putting a greater focus on designing, executing and measuring meeting and convention contents so that they have a purposeful impact on participants, thus creating greater value for stakeholders. It suggests that there should be greater emphasis on the role that meetings play in economic, professional and educational development, promoting the benefits they provide in knowledge exchange, scientific research, technology transfer, networking and motivation and showing clearly what such business events actually accomplish. This revised 3rd edition has been updated to reflect current trends and emerging topics and achieve a more international approach. This edition has also been updated with the following features: New content on social media, web based marketing, the use of technology, experiential marketing and events, the role of trade shows in conventions, issues of sustainability, and moves to create a profession for event management. Fully integrated and updated case studies to highlight current issues and demonstrate theory in practice. Also contains new case studies on the growth markets of Asia, Brazil and the Middle East. A detailed meetings and events industry lexicon. This book is written in an accessible and engaging style and structured logically with useful features throughout to aid students' learning and understanding. This book is an invaluable resource to students following Events Management, Hospitality and Tourism courses.

I just saw an ad for bookcon and realized I don't have enough time to plan a trip out. I've wanted to go for a couple years now but get thwarted every time 😣 Maybe next year I'll make it happen!

TheSpineView 😯 oh no.... sorry 4mo

Librarything provided free passes to the ALA convention here in Seattle last weekend. I went, not intending to get any of the free books there would allegedly be available. Although I was fairly restrained, I still picked up the books pictured. Did I say they were FREE?

charl08 Wow. How are you getting them home?! 7mo
arubabookwoman Oh I live in Seattle, so I brought them home in my car. I could have gone back for 2 more days, and they apparently put new books out all the time. But since we‘re moving soon, and I already have such a huge TBR pile I refrained. I‘m most looking forward to the Marlantes, the Hanif, and the Jian. @charl08 7mo
charl08 Smart move. I have always wanted to go to one of these, but wondered if they would turn me down for the free stuff because I was from the UK! 7mo

arubabookwoman Also I met up with Michigantrumpet and Benitastrnad of the 75 group, and they got many more books than me and had to arrange mailing/packing. @charl08 7mo
charl08 Sounds good. 7mo
gradcat I need to go to one of these, too @charl08 ... what a haul! And free? Nothing better than that 😊😊😊 7mo
Butterfinger Good for you!!! 7mo
batsy It was your duty! 😆 Optic Nerve and After the Party are on my radar. 7mo

everlocalwest Not a librarian, but as a booksellers in the NOLA area @KatDowney and I will definitely be attending ALA! 1y
ReadingEnvy No but for the first time ever I'll be at midwinter! 1y
Chelleo @everlocalwest Whoa!! Great news! Will you have a booth? We definitely need to meet up in person! 1y
Chelleo @ReadingEnvy Midwinter is great too! Not sure when I‘ll attend that one again though. Where is it held next? 1y
tonyahoswalt I'll be there, and I'll try to make the meetup if you do one! 1y
jillrhudy NOLA, I wish 1y
ReadingEnvy @Chelleo 2019 is seattle 1y
rustoryhuf Nawlins is the best location for ALA, because I love to eat my way through the Quarter. Have fun! Wish I could join you. 1y
everlocalwest We won't be exhibiting, just learning and talking to publishers and librarians. I'd love to meet up with any Littens though! 1y
RaimeyGallant Have you blared it on Litsy Happenings? 1y
Chelleo @everlocalwest @KatDowney Are you both free for a late dinner on Friday (7:30ish) an early breakfast on Saturday (7:30)? I have more availability on Saturday but haven‘t looked at any sessions yet. 1y
nomadreader Just saw this! I'm in for a meetup. I get in Friday around 530. 1y
everlocalwest So sorry for ghosting! With two conferences and a family vacation coming up I've been crazy trying to tie lose ends at the shop. I don't know that we'll be able to make the meet up, I'm sorry to say! I'm not sure what days/times we will be going down and I'll be bringing my staff so organizing around them. I'm bummed to miss you guys!! 1y
Chelleo @nomadreader @tonyahoswalt I‘m just arriving. Late Friday or Saturday are flexible for me if you want to try and meetup at the Exhibit hall or for food/drinks. 1y
Chelleo @everlocalwest No worries. It‘ll be pretty hectic for me as well. Maybe we‘ll bump inTo each other. Either way, hope you have a great time at the conference. 1y
tonyahoswalt Hmm I'm not sure. I know I will be busy Saturday evening. I think Friday evening will be hectic. Hopefully we'll at least bump into each other! 1y
Chelleo @tonyahoswalt Right. I‘m heading to a meeting in 20 mins and will be booked until 9 pm tonight! 1y
tonyahoswalt @Chelleo It's crazy how busy it's going to be! When I first started looking at the schedule months ago, I was like, there's not much I want to do. Now my schedule is packed and I'm trying to squeeze in time for exhibits! 1y
Chelleo @tonyahoswalt seriously! It‘s only day one and I‘m already exhausted 😴 1y

Talk to me! Deadline to buy ahead of time is Monday. Is it worth it? Are a lot of you going? What should I do?

GypsyKat I‘m not going, but I wish I could! I hope you have an amazing time!!! 💗📚📚 1y
GypsyKat Also talk to @MrBook I think he goes to this. 1y
LibrarianRyan I am not going to Book Con. However I am going to Book Expo. Have have been to Book Con before. For me it wasn't really worth it, but please remember I had just spent 3 days at Book Expo. If not for that I would Have loved it. If you live close and can afford the tickets you should go. But be sure to take Book money. Not very much was free at Book Con dearly discounted yes. Or the few free ones I had already received from Expo. 1y

MrBook I'll be at BookExpo and BookCon 😁 1y
theresidentromantic @LibrarianRyan @MrBook I haven't heard of Book Expo! What's the difference? @LibrarianRyan it sounds like you got more out of Book Expo? 1y
MrBook @theresidentromantic Expo is for industry folks--publishers, librarians, booksellers, media people, bloggers, etc. The Con is for the general public. Expo is way better 😎👌🏻. Are you going? (edited) 1y
SilversReviews I‘m going to Book Expo...I have never gone to Book Con 1y
LibrarianRyan @theresidentromantic @MrBook is correct, you have to be in the industry to go to Expo. They let as many librarians in as register but they limit the number of blogger tickets for sale. When I went to Expo in Chicago there was about 7000 attendees. Con that was open to the public has 20,000 I remember reading. I took 4 teenagers and they had a great time! 1y
LibrarianRyan @SilversReviews Con is similar except the floor space is cut in half, the attendance triples, and you have to pay for more books than not. I enjoyed it but preferred Expo. I can't afford to do both this year unfortunately. 1y
MrBook @SilversReviews Ooh! Send me an email if you want at jasonvigorito at gmail. I'll invite you to our Slack group. 😁 1y
theresidentromantic @LibrarianRyan @MrBook Thank you both! I think I'd have to do Book Con if I wanted to do one at all, I can't go to something midweek, but I might try for it next year! 1y
SilversReviews @MrBook Will do shortly. You will have to explain what a Slack group is. 😍 1y
MrBook @SilversReviews Okay ?. It's an app that has chat rooms you can set up. You can have "channels" for specific conversation topics, you can chat with someone 1-on-1 privately. You can also share pics and videos. 1y
SilversReviews @MrBook Ok...I will take a look at it. I thought it was a group you set up for the BEA. :) 1y
MrBook Well, it's for everyone to keep in touch in real-time during the days 😁. 1y
SilversReviews @MrBook 😍 (edited) 1y
IamIamIam I gotta go this year!!!! 1y
theresidentromantic @IamIamIam i think I want to go, but we have a christening and I feel guilty and we shouldn't spend money.... But...I wanna go!! Decisions are hard, responsible decisions are even harder. 1y
IamIamIam Lol, I'll buy you a ticket for next year as a wedding gift and we can both go!!!! 😘😘😘😘 1y

TricksyTails How awesome! Wish I were there! Would love to see your art! 🤗♥️ Have a fun time! 1y

Just a re-posting to remind everyone in the area about Classicon. I plan on having my blue wheelie cooler with me to fill with great stuff and my grey #persephonebooks tote bag.

Snagged a ticket to BookCon 2018!! Took a cue from @mrozzz and went for a Saturday ticket. I've never been before so I'm stoked! 🙌🏽

I'd love to get a Litten group together for it! Email me at NYCLittens@gmail.com for updates (If you've already emailed me previously to be on the list for meetup updates, stay tuned! I'll send an email down the line to follow up).

Tickets here: http://www.thebookcon.com/Tickets/

Schlinkles Will likely be going to BEA, the trade show that happens the couple days before Book Con in the same place. Much bookish fun to be had! 2y
Kaylamburson I'll most likely be working it, but I'm happy to find time to escape and hangout a little!! @swishandflick @CoffeeCatsBooks @mrozzz 2y

Mommamanzi I want to go so bad!!! 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks @SwishandFlick @Kaylamburson @mrozzz I got my ticket for Saturday too. It would be fun to see you all again. 😊 (edited) 2y
MrBook @swishandflick @Schlinkles @Kaylamburson @Mommamanzi @CoffeeCatsBooks I go all 5 days. Looking forward to seeing all you beautiful Littens 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!!! This past year I had set up a Slack group, and a lot of us were able to keep tabs on one another. If you're up for that, I'll be sure to include you in 2018's Slack group ☺️🤞🏻🤞🏻. (edited) 2y
Kaylamburson Def include me! I will most likely be there for most of BEA, too. @MrBook 2y
swishandflick @MrBook 5 days?! I thought it was just a weekend, haha. Definitely down for the slack group 2y
swishandflick @CoffeeCatsBooks Yay! @Kaylamburson I thought about you possibly working it after I posted! We'll meet up with you at some point for sure, or at least make a point to visit your booth!! 😄 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks @MrBook Sounds great! Please do add me to the Slack group. 2y
Kaylamburson Yes, definitely visit the booth, and I'll be sure to make time!! I'm excited!! 2y
MrBook @swishandflick #BookExpo is 3 days and #BookCon is 2. 😁🙌🏻 2y
mrozzz Yay!! @CoffeeCatsBooks @swishandflick this will be great!! @Kaylamburson will you work the weekend too?? @MrBook count me in too please! 2y
Kaylamburson Very likely I'll "volunteer" (it's not really an option, lol) on either Saturday or Sunday. But I'll have a badge for all the days, so I can make sure I'm there! @mrozzz 2y
mrozzz Yay that'd be fun! If you're feeling up to hanging out since you'll probably be exhausted.... @Kaylamburson 2y
Kaylamburson I'm sure I will be, but it's worth it for Litten fun! (At least I say so now when BEA feels so far away, lol). I have too many other meetings to think about before then lol @mrozzz (edited) 2y
mrozzz Well I'm looking forward to it!!! @Kaylamburson 😁 2y
heikemarie I‘m definitely going! Just trying to decide if I want one or both days... 2y
Ashleyjg DEFINITELY GOING!!!!(Lol just saw this after 3 months my bad 😂) @ElenaBaer 1y
