Today I received a very interesting article on events and the industry. Most people believe that the event industry is all fun and games but it also makes up 263 billion dollars of the U.S. Economy, according to the Convention Industry Council.
This is a lot of money. That tells me that more people are going back to the grassroots way of networking and that even though our society has moved digital it still craves to meet with each other. I was rather impressed about how much money the event industry makes and contributes to our overall U.S. economy.
The meetings industry creates millions of jobs in every city. That is impressive. I am excited to be a part of this great, fast growing industry!
