The Young Professionals (YP) Committee is dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to engage the under-30 membership base. One of these ways is by hosting quarterly “Hangouts” with industry veterans.
This quarter, we’ll be having a conversation with Matt Hollander, CFE, general manager of the Miami Beach Convention Center, operated by Spectra Venue Management, on Friday, May 20, 3 p.m. (EST). The Miami Beach Convention Center recently broke ground on a $651 million expansion and renovation project that is slated to be completed in 2018. We’ll talk to Matt about what advances he’s hoping to include in this renovation along with a general overview of what is entailed when taking on such a large undertaking.
Bring your questions regarding these topics along with any general career-centric questions to this 45-50 minute conversation with an industry veteran and your YP colleagues.
Please sign-up here to join the hangout and let us know if you want to be one of the eight face-to-face participants. You can also choose just to view the interview. We hope to see you there!
