Ask the Expert: "How Do You Source New Ideas and Experiences?"

As part of our ongoing Ask the Expert program, Lauren, a Minnesota-based meeting planner, submitted the question:

"It is expected that with each event I craft an entirely new and ultra creative experience for our clients and employees. How do you source new ideas and experiences? What little touches should I be adding that will make all the difference in an event? I feel like my creativity is running dry, but I don't want to disappoint."

To get an answer, we reached out to Cindy Y. Lo, CEO and Chief Event Strategist for RED VELVET. She shared the insights in the video above, urging Lauren and other planners to get outside their comfort zones in order to find inspiration. That could mean attending a networking session with professionals with whom you have not interacted before, going into a store you've never set foot, or talking with a friend's kid to get a new perspective.
