It begins with a vision. A new build, renovation, or refresh determines the starting point for a line-up of questions… and hopefully answers. In this session, learn who should be at the table from initial design to completion, the feasibility, budgeting and ROI considerations, and how to future-proof your project. Learn about the role of each player and any restrictions your project needs to consider or overcome. Evaluate how technology, F&B, operations, and venue outfitting are key components in the overall plan. Hear from the experts who have years of experience.
