LOS ANGELES Tackling topics such as how to legally plan events with marijuana and what you need to know about augmented reality, the speakers at BizBash Live: Los Angeles will cover issues important to a variety of event professionals.
The educational portion of the annual expo, scheduled for July 19 at the California Market Center, consists of the Event Innovation Forum and a workshop series with speakers discussing the latest ideas, inspiration, and strategies for executing top-level events. This year’s speakers have worked on Southern California’s biggest events—from the Revlon Run/Walk for Women to Comic-Con International to the Sony Oscars dinner—and for presidents, royalty, and celebrities. In addition, BizBash executive editor Beth Kormanik will present a report on event trends.
For the first time, attendees can earn credit toward CSEP re-certification through a partnership with ILEA and credit toward CPCE certification through a partnership with NACE. Attendees can register for the forum here.
