CORBIN BALL NAMED AS ONE OF “THE 25 MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSONS IN THE MEETINGS INDUSTRY 2012” BY SUCCESSFUL MEETINGS MAGAZINE
NEW YORK, NY (January 23, 2012) -- Corbin Ball has been named as one of the “25 Most Influential Persons In the Meetings Industry” by Successful Meetings magazine, one of the largest publications for the $120 Billion per year industry. This is the fifth time Ball has received this award.
The editorial staff of Successful Meetings magazine and MeetingNews selected the 25 influencers after reviewing highlights from the meetings industry in 2011, and based on who they believe to have accomplished initiatives that would have a lasting impact on the meetings industry. In previous years, the list has featured several notable figures, including the CEOs of Marriott, Maritz, Expedia, Priceline and United Airlines.
The article states: “Consultant Corbin Ball has been helping the meetings industry come to terms with the always-accelerating impact of technology ever since the only e-mail domain around was aol.com. His website could be considered the Library of Congress for meetings technology: It’s impossible to find a more complete compendium of useful links to databases, software, and articles aimed at providing the meetings industry with the technology to produce better events, and the education to use it effectively. At a time when the pace of technological development is lightning fast, the industry has a crying need for more people like Ball who can provide organizations with some perspective on how to use this dizzying array of technology to improve meetings management. ”
The magazine is highlighting one member from the list each week, with a full list being distributed in July. More information can be found here.
Ball is president of Corbin Ball Associates, a Bellingham-based international technology speaking, consulting and writing firm focusing on technology for the meetings and events industry and can be contacted at his extensive web site: www.corbinball.com
