CHICAGO, IL, February 11, 2016 — In order to reiterate PSAV®'s position as a thought leader in the events industry, they recently partnered with the Convention Industry Council, the Meetings Mean Business Coalition and Social Tables to participate in Fuse 2016, a joint educational roadshow that will bring planners and properties together to reinvent the way business is done before events and meetings begin.

“PSAV knows the importance of face-to-face meetings in our world today,” stated John Rissi, senior vice president of PSAV. “With this in mind, we knew that we wanted to be part of this exciting venture and signed on as a sponsor. Fuse is not only an educational roadshow for planners and properties, but it also provides an opportunity for innovation and industry growth. Due to the unique strengths each of our organizations brings to the table, the ability to stimulate conversations between constituencies will be a natural and powerful influence on our industry.”

The five-city roadshow, sponsored by Loews Hotels, PSAV and American Furniture Rentals (AFR) will kick off in Washington, D.C, then travel to Los Angeles, Orlando, Dallas and Chicago. Each stop will feature a separate “Road to CMP Breakfast Club” for those interested in the program, followed by a robust, breakout schedule and a debate-style keynote.

Every aspect of the schedule has been carefully curated to be CE-eligible as part of the CMP Preferred Provider Program, including breakouts on delivering world-class business cases for meetings, research-backed insight on achieving effective site inspections, creating an appealing and functional learning environment and how to overcome connectivity barriers.
