How Global Conferences Can Supercharge Your Career

International conferences are always an event worth raving about, especially when they take place so close to home.

In the last 30 years, the ILEA Live! Conference for planners and producers has toured around the world providing leadership creativity and professional development training for event professionals; encouraging growth, inspiring new ideas and helping those managing event businesses to attract and retain new clients.
This August, ILEA Live is coming to Canada. Hosting the event here is a big deal. Here’s why you should be excited to have this global conference turn 30 in your home country.

Seriously Relevant Content

ILEA Live is known for creating educational environments that hit home with ground breaking content led by experts that offer deep insight into topics that impact planner’s daily. The conference encourages planners to learn from a hands-on approach working with peers through skill sets, like nailing your finances and pricing structure, turning prospects into fans or exponentially growing your idea generation and turning them into executable money makers. It is content designed for event professionals who are sharing their most relevant and current ideas and strategies.

Open International Opportunities for Work and Partnerships

One thing international conferences do is bring people together from across the world with the same common goal – to learn and connect. Attend and you have the potential to find the right connections to extend your client base reach in to other areas of the world and build partnerships with service providers and leaders in those foreign countries.
