Turning to today’s top future of management speakers and futurists, it becomes clear that there’s no shortage of great cities and towns at which to hold meetings, events, conferences, tradeshows, corporate retreats, board meetings and other live get-togethers. In fact, odds are, we’ve probably presented programs at most of these storied and scenic destinations, having given over 500 keynote speaking presentations in just the last few years alone.
That said, as future of management speakers and futurists, we’ve also covered many of the major and minor markets in the US that utilize keynote speakers. However, as big as the nation is, there’s no shortage of alternate options that you might wish to consider for your event planning needs as well. Noting this, we wanted to highlight some other great hotspots around America where you might wish to bring people together for good food, great speakers and a well-rounded entertainment schedule. Let’s take a closer look at some other spots that you’ll want to keep on your event planning team’s radar. Specifically:
- Bismarck, ND – Energy and government events
- Carson City, NV – State capital and outdoor recreation
- Laramie, WY – University of Wyoming presence
- Bangor, ME – Tourism and Stephen King connection
- Burlington, IA – Agricultural area and Midwest conventions
- Biloxi, MS – Casinos and tourism focused events

Really any small to mid-sized city in America could periodically bring in speaker talent for niche industries, local companies, tourism, or educational institutions that host public events. The reasons are wide-ranging as any future of management speakers and futurists can tell you. Hope this helps as you get ready to book speakers and plan your next event!
