Whether you’ve been in the industry for years or are still learning the ropes, we all need to understand what it takes to plan successful meetings as we move back to in-person events. Join us for this interactive panel discussion on how to effectively partner with hotel, CVB and other vendors to source and plan meetings and special events in the current climate. From negotiation and unexpected sourcing challenges to staffing issues and on site event logistics, planners will have the opportunity to speak to each other and an industry panel of experts on what preparing for in-person OR virtual/hybrid meetings looks like moving forward. Our panelists will include a variety of industry colleagues, from legal to convention services, so that you as a planner can be armed with best practices as you plan and execute meetings in 2023 and beyond.
