“DuPage County CVB has been one of our partners for several years, so we are excited to expand our relationship by bringing SPiNCon there this year,” said Shawna Suckow, CMP, Founder of SPiN.
SPiNCon 2015 will continue the theme from 2014 of Brain, Body & Being – offering three different tracks that focus on the whole meeting professional, understanding that senior planners want education that addresses their professional, personal and spiritual well-being.
“I have attended the past three SPiNCons as a partner,” said Lisa Landers, CMP, Director of Sales for DuPage County CVB, “and I am thrilled that DuPage County was selected to host this year’s conference. I met Shawna years ago and have been impressed with her and her vision. I have always felt welcomed by SPiN – what a wonderful group of senior meeting professionals. We look forward to welcoming this group of planners to the western suburbs of Chicago!”
