The second annual Beyond Borders Conference for buyers and suppliers of international meetings and incentives is set for March 31 to April 1, 1998 at the New York Hilton in New York, NY.

Co-sponsored by Adams/Laux Publishing, publisher of this magazine and four other meetings publications, along with PGI, a global events, entertainment, exhibitions, and business communications company, the education forum was redesigned based on last year's evaluations.

"More interactive programs and more discussion time have been built into the program," says Ann Boehme, CMP, conference chairperson and president of Meetings Management and Techniques, Valley Stream, NY.

The program begins at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31 and closes at 4 p.m. April 1. It will include panels, case studies, and technical experts on topics including site selection, hiring entertainment, shipping, risk management, negotiations, money matters, health and safety, technology, and culture shock. Registration for planners is $225; for suppliers, $350. For information, call Ann Boehme at (516) 561-4223.
