About the Event:
The Member Showcase and Speaker Industry Panel is one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events of the NSA NYC year.
This is a two part meeting: Part one consists of five Professional members of the chapter presenting their best 5 minutes for their colleagues and a panel of three industry representatives—bureaus, agents, meeting planners. (Names and info to come soon.) The panel gives its expert opinion on each presentation, how likely it would be to be booked, and how well it aligns with the speaker’s website.
Part two is a discussion with these industry professionals about the current state of the business, what topics are hot, what are not, and how best to reach the people who can hire you. We will solicit and have the panel answer your most pressing questions.
Every year at this event the level of presenting is higher and higher. Come see and hear your colleagues do their very best stuff—and learn the secrets of how to get booked!
