Caesars Entertainment: CEMA Road Back 2 Events Panel at CAESARS FORUM

<< Back to Learning on Demand | Posted on: May 28, 2021

It seems we’re always talking about what the return to live events will look like. Here is an opportunity to see, hear and learn from event pros that have taken that brave first step and from those who are in the planning stages!  CEMA will be LIVE and livestreaming the interactive panel discussion which will allow you to participate in a live Q&A session with the panel.

On April 11-13, Caesars Palace hosted its first large conference since reopening: the “Dr. Mattox: Trauma, Critical Care & Acute Surgery Conference,” the longest running event in the history of Las Vegas events (50 years)!

CEMA’s May 25 Webinar will feature a LIVE panel discussion about this significant industry milestone at the magnificent CAESARS FORUM conference center.  The webinar will be livestreamed –   our first in more than a year –  and will include real-time interactive Q&A.

At the webinar, Mary Allen – TCC&AS Event Manager, will be sharing her trailblazing experience planning and executing her first true hybrid digital/in-person event that drew 425 attendees. Rachel Andrews, Director of Meetings & Events, Marketing, Cvent, will be taking us on her journey through planning a 2,000-attendee event amidst the ongoing pandemic uncertainty.

Michael Massari, Chief Sales Officer, Caesars Entertainment and Co-Chair of Meetings Mean Business, and Don Ross, Vice President Meeting Operations Las Vegas, Caesars Entertainment, will give the venue perspective – how they are ensuring that the most current protocols for attendee safety are in place and how they deliver the amazing Caesars and Las Vegas experiences within that framework.

The panel will also share insights on industry trends.
