The live events space can be a hard industry to break into. Whether you are working to meet new business partners or if you’re working to get your business recognized, it’s can be hard to find the right place to start. That is how I felt as I was developing my brands until I discovered XLIVE Business Conference.
XLIVE brings together over a thousand people in live events space for three days of networking and learning from the top names in the industry. By the end of the conference you will have a rolodex full of contacts that will take your career to the next level and you will have learned important lessons that will help you make more informed decisions for your business.
I am excited to announce the XLIVE and The Festival Guy have partnered to launch two programs designed to help young executives and live event start-ups benefit from everything XLIVE has to offer.
