Have you read our winter issue yet? In it I wrote an article about top meeting trends. That article was inspired by a session I attended at MPI WEC last year in Atlantic City. It’s funny how things end up coming full circle, because I’ve been asked to serve on a panel in a few weeks about trends in the meetings and events industry.
As an editor, I get sent a lot of pitches. Each day, my inbox is flooded with different products, venues and services. It’s true that it takes a lot to get noticed, but I do glance over each and every one of them. I was sent one a while back from a place called Stumpy’s, a new spot for teambuilding. It wasn’t the name that caught my eye, though…it was the activity! Stumpy’s is a hatchet throwing facility in Eatontown. Yes, you read that right, hatchet throwing. It’s like darts but with a hatchet.
