Corbin Ball & Co. Marks Its 21st Anniversary

In April of 1997, I left my career as Head of Conference Operations for a high-tech association (SPIE) to form my own speaking, consulting and writing firm focusing exclusively on technology for events, exhibitions and meeting venues. I was the first person to do this full-time -- the 'OG' of event tech! Today, I am happy to say there are many dozens of "techno-evangelists" to help guide our industry in this continuingly rapidly changing field. It has been, and continues to be, a very fun ride. I wish to express my hearty thanks to my clients, to those who have attendended my sessions over the years, and to the loyal readers of my TechTalk Newsletter (started in Sept. 1998)! Your support is much appreciated!

Corbin Named as One of the Top 30 CMP Influencers by the CIC

I am very happy and honored to be included with 29 other colleagues in this first peer-nominated influencers campaign celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Certified Meeting Professionals (CMP) program. 
.
As the 30th anniversary year of the Certified Meeting Professional Program began, the Convention Industry Council (CIC), which administers the program, wanted to recognize this milestone by honoring the CMPs who make it possible. What better way is there to recognize the power of the certification, than to honor the professionals whose impact on their colleagues and whose contributions to their communities have left an indelible mark on the global meetings and events industry? So, we asked you to nominate who has influenced them personally and whose work has had an impact on the direction and growth of the profession.influential CMPs on social media, then vote for your top choice on Facebook. Over 75 individual nominations were submitted for deserving CMPs and the final top 30 CMP Influencers were selected by a committee, based on the number of Facebook poll votes, personal influence on peers, and community/leadership presence. 
.
CIC is now proud to announce the recipients of its first peer-nominated influencers campaign. These thirty individuals exemplify the spirit of the CMP credential- professionalism, credibility and excellence- and CIC is proud to recognize these representatives of the program.
