In this episode of GatherGeeks, BizBash chairman and founder David Adler and editor in chief Beth Kormanik hear from Brent Taylor and Arlene Schilke, presidents of Timewise Event Management and executive producers of Go West. The pair takes us behind the scenes at the annual Go West event-industry conference in Edmonton, Canada, sharing what they've learned over the last three years, strategic choices made for breakout rooms and stage design, and why they don't use an emcee. The group also chats about elevated conference catering, why Western Canada is appealing to event planners, how industry events have changed for the better, and more.
