The events industry has been getting a lot of love lately. Though, resources aren’t as easy to find as one would expect.
Finding blogs and resources focused for Event Professionals is fairly easy. But which ones are good? Which ones are outdated? Which ones haven’t been updated in ages?
In order sort this out for you, we’ve tallied up 5 Event Professional resource websites we thought would be handy to you!
