Bringing a group overseas—or handling international attendees—requires due diligence and lots of upfront work by meeting planners, and with the increasingly global nature of business it's becoming more a part of a planner's job description.

Join Meetings Media and Charles Massey, one of the meetings industry's top experts in cross-cultural planning, global meeting operations and risk assessment, contingency planning and crisis management, to discover what you need to know to make sure your next overseas meeting doesn't create an international incident.

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

  • Understand the impact of cultural attitudes and considerations affecting the conduct of business overseas
  • Identify similarities and differences between domestic and offshore meeting planning components
  • Identify specific challenges that may occur during the planning process and on-site
  • Identify resources and methods helpful in establishing a local support network
  • Develop guidelines for choosing an appropriate overseas venue and facility
