A Conference Within a Conference

association focusAssociation Focus, Exclusively for Association Executives
October 13, 2014,  The Venetian | The Palazzo Congress Center

This special event, presented as part of Smart Monday, is a “conference within a conference” designed specifically for association executives (suppliers do not attend these sessions). Participants can expect motivating speakers to inspire them to fully engage in the learning program.

With dedicated education presented by ASAE, ICCA and PCMA, these sessions are chock-full of case studies, peer-to-peer learning and networking opportunities. This is the preeminent opportunity for association executives to boost their knowledge and career.

The fantastic evening event - sponsored by MGM Resorts International - allows association executives to network with exhibitors and peers before the trade show opens.
