The Motivation Show (email@example.com) will convene for the 69th time this year — but there's always something new. The September 24 to 26 show in Chicago will feature more than 2,000 exhibitors and 50 free seminars.
A revamped 2002 Crystal Awards Program will kick off the week in style at the Chicago Shakespeare Theatre. Awards Chair Frank Lee, president of The Pinstriped Carrot, San Francisco, and his committee have redefined the award categories to address budget allocations, program length, and group size. Partnering with SITE (www.site-intl.org) on the awards is IMEX, the new show for incentive travel, meetings, and events, launching in Frankfurt in April 2003.
Another new feature is a Leadership Forum luncheon, featuring Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.
Of course, some things never change — like PGI's annual Pizzathon party at the Hangge-Uppe Bar. Keep an eye out for your pizza box invitation.
