What You'll Learn:
The federal government is moving fast to regulate meetings and events spending by recipients of TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program) funds. The meetings industry is responding with an unprecedented coalition effort to both demonstrate the value of meetings to the overall economy and issue its own set of guidelines to self-regulate before potentially business-hampering rules are imposed. Your industry and career are under fire, and it is crucial to understand and deal with the ramifications of TARP regulations, whether you work for an organization that is directly affected or not.

In this webinar, you will learn what steps industry associations are taking to represent your interests, and also receive hands-on, “real world” advice on how to work under the proposed guidelines.

Join Meetings Media and industry leader Christine Duffy, president and CEO of Maritz Travel, for this free one-hour webinar, and find out where you stand in the new meetings environment.

Some of the key points covered in this webinar will include the following:

  • How TARP regulations effect you, directly and indirectly

  • What major industry associations are doing to represent your interests

  • How to understand and implement the new industry-recommended guidelines

  • How to navigate the future as a meeting planner
