YEP YAK!  roundtable discussion
Tuesday February 6  at Burger and Lobster
Connect with new event professionals over lunch while discussing a timely topic.

The topic this time is event security.
We all experience security measures, some sensible, some not - from removing our shoes,  to being fondled by the TSA,  and  metal detectors at  events.    How will the new climate of fear affect event planning?  What can we do to minimize the economic impact on our industry?  Everyone talks, everyone listens.
