It’s that time of year again! TeamBonding will be heading to IMEX America, held in Las Vegas from October 12-15.
IMEX America is an amazing experience that features the largest hosted buyer program in North America and attracts thousands of meeting planners from the U.S. and around the world. It’s all about networking, sharing ideas and driving business. Certainly an opportunity that TeamBonding does not want to miss out on!
Who will be in attendance?
TeamBonding plans to be at IMEX America to learn, network and expose ourselves to potential partners.
Wendy Goldstein, our Meeting Planner, along with Veronika Olah and Michelle Beyda, two of our experienced program facilitators, will all be attending. They will be representing TeamBonding at the Boston booth along with 19 other Boston based businesses. You can catch our attendees wearing spirit shirts that will have “TeamBonding” on the back, so you wont miss them!
Wendy will there Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, taking appointments from 10-4 pm. Veronika and Michelle will be there Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, networking and blogging. Monday the 12th is a unique day titled “Smart Monday.” What better way to kick off this event than with a day full of networking, education and exciting events?
The IMEX appointment system is unique, giving buyers complete choice over their appointments and contains an integrated messaging service. It is a buyer-led system – buyers make appointments with exhibitors (not the other way around). For exhibitors this means that they are guaranteed to meet with buyers who have a specific interest in their destination or product. (imexamerica.com)
To make an appointment, you must be registered for IMEX America to then have access to your personal online schedule. From here you can search buyers using the IMEX America online Exhibitor Directory. Once you’ve found one you’re interested in, you can make an appointment. When the appointment gets confirmed you’ll then be able to send messages back and forth to the exhibitor to stay connected.
Be in the know!
If you can’t be in attendance, you can still stay connected! We will be on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook throughout the duration of the event so you won’t miss a thing! We will be sharing our experiences with the hashtag #teamIMEX2015
What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
