Lessons Learned

“The pandemic year taught us that a strong team is the most important part of any company, especially one whose products are based on creating human connections around the world. A diverse, motivated, dedicated team who care about each other can accomplish anything if they truly work together. Our team has proven that beyond a doubt over this past year. We are so excited to see what they can accomplish in an environment that supports both virtual and live events!” —Jeff Guberman, CEO

Meaningful Meetings

“Whether virtual or in-person, creating meaningful meetings is the foundation of our industry. MGME’s tag line is “Creating Human Connections” because we believe that when you bring people together, in the right environment, with a common goal, great things can happen.  Whether it is a national sales meeting, product launch, leadership conference, or an ad board, attendee engagement is paramount to success. Designs must be purposeful, thoughtful, and well planned to keep focus and deliver business goals.” —Carvie Gillikin, COO
