October is a great month for ISES Indiana Members to share scary event stories.  Do you have a scary story from a past event that other ISES Member might learn from?  Don't be invisible, go to the ISES Indiana Facebook Page and share a past experience that can be scary, fiendishly funny,  ghoulish or one that you want to put a mask on and never think of again!  Don't be bashful, this a a great way for members to share their experiences!

Don't forget about the October 15th, "Event Nightmares" at the Allison Mansion from 11:30 to 1:15.

Join us for this informative and fun session at the beautiful and historic Allison Mansion on the campus of Marian University as our panel of industry experts tell all and share their real life event nightmares and how they responded. Some of the incredible stories you'll hear include hosting Race For the Cure a week after Boston Marathon bombing, having a national conference in town during 9/11 attacks, death of an attendee at an event, tornados during outdoor events, a bride hosting her wedding on the circle during CircleFest, power outages, sewer line breaks, rained out events, all just to name a few in this powerful Part I session of Event Nightmares, as told from the planners point of view.
