Meetings get no respect! We saw and continue to see criticism of meetings by government, media and the general public. There is a lack of understanding of why meetings are held (objectives), the facilities in which they are held and the activities planned and executed for meetings. Meeting professionals are charged with planning “subdued” or serious meetings. To do so, we take into account setting, room sets and ambience, food and activities, transportation and cost, among other factors.

Conference centers offer venues at which meetings are the focus and meeting participants can concentrate on the business. For meeting professionals, conference centers offer an ease of planning and budgeting.

Join Meetings Media and top industry educator Joan Eisenstodt to discover what benefits—from ease of planning to perception—meeting in a dedicated learning environment such as a conference center provides.

After participating in this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Construct better meeting objectives to better select sites
  • Distinguish conference centers’ features and their contribution to good meetings
  • Identify how certain meetings’ objectives can be best met by meeting at conference centers
