The International Association for Exhibitions and Events approached Michelle Bruno in 2016 to write a series of quarterly articles for a supplement it publishes in The Meeting Professional Magazine. The March article addressed some of the vulnerabilities of meetings and what, according to some experts, meeting professionals can do to deliver a stronger, more inviting “product.” The June issue gave readers some options–from yoga to mindfulness meditation–for exploring wellness in meeting environments. In September, she wrote about the challenges of getting technologies to “talk” (share data and functionality) to each other and what the industry can do to nurture this integration. In the December issue, using game strategies to accomplish meeting goals was the topic–a hot one in the wake of the Pokemon GO phenomenon.
