If you are looking for new ways to integrate the principles of responsible meetings into your event, these three sustainability conferences could be a good place to start. More than 30,000 people are expected to flock to the “Soul of the City” conference, which will delve into the five realms of architecture—culture, nature, future, passion and human value—as they relate to revitalizing the soul of a city.
The recent addition of Transfer of Value (ToV) reporting and other new regulatory add-ons, as well as varying national and international requirements, call for constant adaptation on all sides of the equation. A new report by American Express Meetings & Events has found that all of these dynamics are changing the landscape of healthcare congresses, the largest segment of educational meetings.
The Hotel at the University of Maryland will be the only four-star hotel in the College Park area, and with 43,000 sf of meeting space—including a 10,000 sf ballroom and rooftop venue—it will inevitably be a game changer for groups meeting within the Baltimore-Washington Metro area. Marian Hrab, director of sales and marketing for the hotel, is expecting a major increase in events that springboard from the University of Maryland’s (UMD) research efforts.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
