Meetings Webinar Club Planning to take a meeting outside of the familiar environment of the U.S. presents a raft of logistics, cultural and political challenges, so being on top of your game is even more critical. And with the global economy growing by leaps and bounds, there's no better time than now to start getting prepared. Even if you don't currently plan meetings internationally, that time may be fast approaching.

Join Meetings Focus and one of the top international meeting and event planners in the industry, Charles Massey, owner of SYNAXIS Meetings & Events, for this free one-hour educational webinar detailing what you need to know before you need to know it—which sometimes is too late!

  • Identify resources to help build a local support network
  • Develop guidelines for choosing the appropriate overseas venue, based on your specific group demographics
  • Develop tools to assist your domestic delegates with outbound international travel and when they return home
