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
The corporate world is experiencing a massive shift. A new generation is entering the workforce, many are retiring, and the formula for leadership is being re-invented.

Focus is shifting from individual acceleration to purpose-driven teamwork. (more…)
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork.

When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively to improve teamwork. (more…)
We learn early in our lives that it’s better to win, and in order to win, we need to be competitive.
“Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.”- Henry Kissinger In order to lead, sometimes it is necessary to inspire. Leaders invoke the passion and drive into their team in order for hard work to be done. Team bonding quotes have the ability to encourage, but they also allow us to remember the great leaders of the past.
Team building applies to any field, even a football field. Following my favorite sports teams is my number one hobby! It’s fascinating to see how the most intense sports teams perform; the way they communicate, work together and understand each other. As fans, we care about the win! However, we have no idea what effort goes on behind the scenes. I realize that to have such a fierce demeanor as a team, it takes some work, teamwork. For players to cooperate, commit, and triumph, they first establish a fundamental core with team building.

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.
