JOIN US! Holiday Showcase
December 13 & 14, 2021
This year’s theme is Reunited in Strength. Join us on Dec. 13 for the CEOnly Summit and stay the following day to visit our sold-out exhibit hall. We kept the education, inspiring speakers, products and services you expect from Holiday Showcase, but we’ve also added unprecedented flexibility. You can choose the schedule that optimizes your experience.
Why should you attend?
First, we’ve missed seeing you! Our volunteers and staff have developed some great enhancements to this year’s meeting and I’d like to share them with you:
- Improved navigation with our Holiday Showcase app, powered by eShow.
- Networking is a priority–attendees can select to attend focused small group discussions on particular topics of interest.
- We are pleased to announce that our kick-off reception on December 13 at 4 p.m. will be co-hosted with the Greater Midwest chapter of PCMA.
- Our exhibit hall is sold out with over 200 exhibitors representing 145 organizations. Plus, educational sessions will also be taking place in the Exhibit Hall.
- The CEOnly Summit will be held on December 13, 2021 from 1 pm to 4 pm. This year, CEOs are encouraged to bring their # 2 staff. Join other C-Suite executives for this inspiring afternoon. Here’s a peek at the program:
