For nearly than 30 years, Meetings Focus has delivered content to the meetings industry with a concentration as the “Destination Experts.” With the new name comes an additional area of focus. The new tagline “People + Places” will combine the destination focus we’re known for, and will incorporate industry professionals, incentive gift ideas and more. This will give the publication more of a well-rounded feel and a new, crisp appearance.

“The rebranding of Meetings Focus to Meetings Today reflects the rapidly changing face of the meetings and conventions world—via technology, shifting demographics and globalization—as well as the immediacy in which today’s consumers demand information,” said Tyler Davidson, vice president and chief content director of Meetings Today. “The new title of our magazine, website, live events and other content distribution channels is in step with a world that moves at a rapid clip, and meeting planners who want the most up-to-date information about the places they research for potential meeting destinations. Additionally, our new tagline, ‘People + Places,’ reinforces our industry-leading destination reporting effort, but also places an emphasis on continuing our effort to cover the people who make the meetings world spin.”

The publication will continue to be national, with features and destinations continuing to cover all of the people and places its more than 55,000-strong subscribers have always known. The main difference will be a stronger brand, cleaner look and feel, and additional content.
