A Corporate Event is Not Just a Party

I love a good trade show party. Not just attending them, but the planning them too. Brainstorming a theme, exhibit design, choosing decor, scouting locations, food and wine taste testing – I love it all. Even for experienced marketers like me, it’s easy to get caught up in the planning process and forget the most important detail of all: WHY am I hosting this event in the first place?
