2019 February Sacramento Education Program

February 7, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm PST

What came first, 
the Planner or the Supplier?

Education Luncheon 

Does having experience as a Supplier make you a better Planner?  Or, vice versa?  Some start their career directly as a Planner while others take a different path by starting as a Supplier partner and moving to the Planner role.  There is no “right” path to success. It is what you do with your experiences and knowledge that matters – it is the circle of life.

Join us for our second annual education and lunch event in Sacramento.  This year we have an all-star panel of former Suppliers who are now Planners representing some of the best companies in Northern California.  They will talk about what they learned from the Supplier world and how that knowledge gives them an edge as a Planner.

All Planner registrations are complimentary thanks to our event partners: Monterey County CVB and Greater Palm Springs CVB.   Register today as space is limited.
