The second annual Beyond Borders Conference for buyers and suppliers of international meetings and incentives will be held 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 meeting publications, along with PGI, a global events, entertainment, exhibitions, and business communications company, the education forum has been redesigned based on attendee evaluations from the 1997 event.

"More interactive programs and more discussion time have been built into the 1998 program," says Ann Boehme, CMP, conference chairperson and president of Meetings Management and Techniques, Valley Stream, NY.

The program will begin at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, March 31 and close at 4 p.m. on April 1. It will include panels, case studies, and technical experts on topics including site selection, previewing and hiring entertainment, shipping, risk management, negotiations and contracts, money matters, health and safety, and technology.

Registration for planners is $225; for suppliers, $350. For more information or to register, call Ann Boehme at (516) 561-4223 or fax (516) 872-6397.
