Welcome to RGI Pep Talks! This is a new video series by Raybourn Group International, made possible by the support of our friends at Markey’s Rental & Staging, based on the questions we get asked most frequently in the RGI office. We wanted to bring in a few of our partners to look at what’s happening in the industry and to help answer these questions. One of these big issues is related to annual conferences. For many groups, this is their make-or-break event for their year. It not only has a budget impact, but the event experience will impact your members’ willingness to renew their memberships or volunteer for your organization. So today, we sit down with Chris Gahl, Senior Vice President at Visit Indy, and we are specifically looking at what matters to attendees and how to evaluate potential destinations.
