Planning meetings is an exercise fraught with potential catastrophe: Losing tens of thousands of dollars due to attrition…controlling alcohol consumption and food and beverage costs…avoiding lawsuits from attendees, facilities and other parties who may not even be on your radar…transportation nightmares…

Don’t let a simple mistake torpedo your program, organization or career.

Join Meetings Media and three veteran meeting planners from the (VIP) Vintage Industry Professionals Network—Mimi Almeida (president of All Performance Associates, LLC), Jan Hennessey (conference manager, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory) and Jackie Klein (co-founder of VIP) to learn how to avoid the most common meeting mistakes, from pre-planning to the post-report—or stop the bleeding if a negative chain of events has already been set in motion!

Jackie Klein
Speaker: Jackie Klein
After participating in this session, the attendee will be able to:

  • Use communication tools to ensure buy-in and compliance from stakeholders
