Today wrapped up the end of TeamBonding’s adventures in Fabulous Las Vegas. Imex2014 has been a roller coaster of inspiration, learning and experience that has taught us there’s really nothing more valuable than surrounding yourself with valuable, caring team members.
Busy, bustling morning here at #IMEXAmerica! The last day just began, let’s see what it has in store for us! #eventprofs
This morning, Wendy Booker ignited the mountain climber and marathon runner in all of us when she recanted her story of being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. She didn’t let the disease hold her back though. Instead, Wendy persevered and went on to run the Boston Marathon and climb the Seven Summits, learning something new about team strength and leadership along the way.
The best part of Wendy’s morning keynote, however, was her definition of what a good team really is. “The collaborative effort… When it’s right, it’s right. Just be the best person you can be.” After the keynote, we headed into a more marketing-related headspace as Kristen Carvalho spoke about social media automation and when it’s appropriate. Scheduling out your social posts is a time-saver, but it’s also important to show your employees and team being human. Your followers want to know that you’re just like them!
David Paisley, Senior Research Director at CMI, sat down with us and gave insight onto company culture and what it really means to be LGBT friendly. David’s influence was on the idea that your internal team needs to have an attitude of caring. He encouraged all business owners to tap into their internal peer structures and build tolerance and compassion through getting to know each other. Again, everyone is different, so why not celebrate those differences?
So many amazing booths and displays here at #IMEXAmerica! These are just a few of our favorites…
Finally, the day wrapped up with quick visits to our favorite booths. There were so many amazing exhibits on the show floor that it was hard to walk around without catching something new to see every time. From the Columbia booth, which was handing out free coffee, to the Texas booth with its leather accents and beautiful scenery, there were plenty of beautiful displays on the show floor!
In all, Imex America was a success for TeamBonding. We learned that each person brings their own value to your team, and that just having fun with your team, event professionals or other, can make a huge difference inside the workplace!
See you next year, Imex!
As per the season, the TeamBonding team celebrated the holidays with a bang. Each year, the entire TeamBonding team kicks off the holidays with our annual holiday party. It’s always a new activity or adventure we haven’t done before. It gets hard trying to come up with new fun things to do and one-upping the year before. We try to do different activities each time and this year was no different. For our big surprise this year, we went to The Studio Kitchen at Kingston Collection in Kingston, MA.
Welcome to the new and improved TeamBonding site! We are excited to announce the launch of TeamBonding’s newly designed website. We hope you like our new site which was designed with our new slogan “Where Work Meets Play” in mind. We streamlined it to be more user-friendly and reflective of our company values. The site is compatible with tablets and smartphones, making it easy for you to keep in touch on-the-move.
Scavenger hunts are some of the most hilarious and exciting ways to build bonds within a team. People love them, any why not? They get you out of the office, moving around, and exploring your surroundings. We love building scavenger hunts for people, but we also know sometimes a fully produced and facilitated event isn’t in the cards for everyone. Which is why we’re happy to offer DIY scavenger hunts!
How does one put into words the feeling of being in the Las Vegas Convention Center with thousands of folks all in the event industry? IMEX 2015 was a nonstop crazy “workation” as the best of the best venues and vendors brought the very latest of what they had to offer. We felt right at home on this global stage as our colleagues in the event world all had one thing in common—they love their jobs and they love creating memorable and unique experiences. (more…)
The ladies of TeamBonding jumped right into Smart Monday at IMEX 2015 where it was very clear that the way to be “smart” in business and in life is to practice mindfulness, have gratitude, and to project positive energy. Keynote Speaker Lee Papa kicked off the day encouraging the idea of “Cancel/Clear”—starting over immediately in the moment when negative talk creeps into your mind or comes out of your mouth. Being mindful of less optimal emotions like anger, worry and resentment changes: (more…)

It was another great day at IMEX America 2014! Not only did we get to hang out with event professionals from all of the world but we also won selfie contests, toasted with Scottish men in kilts, attended educational campfire sessions, watched French can can dancers turn cartwheels, dressed up as leprechauns, and participated in a live cooking demo. We even got to meet two members of the Beatles! Okay, so that last part isn’t exactly true. But we did meet two Beatles impersonators! That almost counts, right? (more…)
