Industry Conversations

The Northwest Event Show (NWES) has undergone a multi-tier evolution since 2020 and we are continuing to evolve content to meet the industry’s needs. Now we’re focused on gearing up for yet another round of “Industry Conversations”. While the pandemic shook our industry, some of us rolled up our sleeves and got back to work to create new ways to do business and connect our clients to their audience by utilizing the virtual world. As we focus on what’s to come, tune into a variety of panels featuring industry experts and learn what’s trending and what tools you will need in your toolkit to tackle what’s ahead.
