March Magic Hoopfest is a true celebration of basketball, and what better possible timing? Mid-March is the best possible time for basketball, I mean every hoop-lovers dream. You've got prep basketball playoffs going on and the college ranks are preparing for the big tournament, brackets are flying around and everybody is keeping their eye on their favorite team and learning about the match-ups with possible opponents.

There are a lot of little things that can really make the difference between a mediocre event and something truly memorable. One of the small things I always make sure to do is have a little something to give to keynote speakers that take time out of his or her schedule to speak and present in Greater Lansing. Depending on your role in the industry, maybe you're not giving gifts to speakers but in the course of an event, there is usually someone you need to thank. Smart planners are also considerate and thoughtful people. Because of this, I'm often asked, "what are good gifts to give to speakers?" To this I usually reply, "I'm glad you asked!"
