EVENT TREND: BEHOLD THE
DRONE After facing challenges from
the FAA, a U.S. judge has opened the
path for drones to legally fly for profit.
What exactly is a drone? It’s a small
aircraft without a human pilot aboard;
its flight is either controlled by an
onboard computer or by a ground
pilot using a remote control. Drones
can fly at heights up to 400 feet and
with prices starting at $300; regular
folks can now operate a drone. Visit
the blog for a look at some recent
events that have used drones.

NEW NETWORK FOR SUPPLIERS
Shawna Suckow, founder of Senior
Planners Industry Network (SPIN), has
launched a new venture, The Hive
Network, which facilitates the cross-pollination between planners and suppliers. It serves four main purposes:
1 Build a private community for veteran suppliers with a minimum of
10 years of industry experience. (Or
five years, with a recommendation
from a SPIN member.)
2 Through an educational webinar
library, veteran planners and sales
experts will share insider advice.
3 Suppliers who complete 12
courses from The Hive’s curriculum
qualify for Customer-Certified Sales
Expert (CCSE) designation.
4 Those who earn CCSE will be
invited to meet-ups of senior level
planners at major industry events
like IMEX, WEC and AIBTM.
There are three ways to participate:
join the free LinkedIn group, become
a member, or partake in a la carte
