"Meetings Quest offers event planners an exciting and intimate chance to probe key trends, discuss emerging technologies and discover the newest best practices with some of the industry's most innovative thought leaders."

In the first Learning Lab, Hacker will be facilitating a session titled "Beyond the Leading Edge," on meeting-planning and mobile technology.

The second Learning Lab, titled "The Realities of Legalities," will feature attorney John S. Foster, one the nation's preeminent experts on meetings-industry law. Foster will provide Meetings Quest attendees with ways to protect themselves and their organizations from expensive legal problems by using state-of-the-art risk management techniques. Foster will also be available to meet one-on-one with attendees during the Meetings Quest trade show.

"What we discover together at Meeting Quest will help us to be more efficient, fearless and successful. It will also simplify our lives," promised Hacker. "Join us at Meetings Quest in Cabarrus County for a unique, enriching and refreshing game-changing experience."
