Join us to hear from partners in the live events industry who will be sharing pain points and best practices with the goal of identifying how to partner with one another and support a more collaborative process when working on behalf of our clients, from proposals through to the day of production. 

We will begin with a panel discussion moderated by the ILEA Napa-Sonoma Board of Directors. After the panel chat, we will have two breakout sessions where you get to choose the two industry categories you would like to learn from during this deep-dive discussion.
