In facilitated round table discussions, attendees will explore, discuss, and find solutions to, current challenges they face in the meeting planning arena. The topics may include:
Budget Restrictions and Hotels-What are ways planners can save money when working with hotels (room blocks, event spaces/conferences)? How do you best communicate your budget when negotiating with hotel staff? What are the benefits of using a hotel over other venues?
Being Short Staffed-What are some tips and tricks you have used to run events when short staffed. What are ways planners can rely on hotel staff on event day and how can you best use them. Do less with more–from planning stages to event day, what are the challenges of this concept and how have you overcome them?
Guest Experience-How do you ensure guests are having a dynamic experience at your event? Have you implemented new practices to enhance guest experience? How do you evoke an emotional response from attendees? What are your best practices for collecting feedback?
- Improve your knowledge in the areas of budgets, meeting management and attendee satisfaction.
- Share best practices and current trends in meetings
- Create a set of best practices that can be recreated at your meeting!
