Some things change, and other things stay the same.

My name is Andrew Sheivachman and I'm the new editor of Skift's Meetings Innovation Report.

As this newsletter enters its third year tracking trends across the meetings and events sector, we're going to dive even deeper into the innovation and economic forces that drive the global meetings industry. We'll also operate with a sustained focus on examining the technology that has reshaped how planners work and attendees experience events.

And don't worry: Skift's Deanna Ting and Greg Oates will still contribute their industry-leading insight into the world of meetings. Stay tuned for more; we're only getting started.
