Having a truly global audience requires preparing to meet the needs and expectations of people you may not normally be accustomed to welcoming at your programs, no matter where your program is being held. Globally attended programs are quickly becoming the norm and expecting attendees to conform to your standards may not be the best way to approach a culturally diverse audience.

Join Meetings Today and Eli Gorin, COO of Far Horizons Tourism, to uncover the key issues to take into consideration when expecting international attendees at your next program, such as creating a welcoming environment, logistical differences and how to educate key stakeholders on how to welcome their international guests. Gorin will also look at some essential keys to success when hosting U.S. attendees at international meetings.

By attending this webinar, attendees will learn the following:

  • How to recognize the important issues to consider when expecting international attendees
  • How to determine what can be done to make sure international attendees feel welcome
  • How to identify the logistical elements necessary to accommodate the needs of international attendees
  • Must-know information for taking your meeting abroad

Earn CEUs: CIC has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Strategic Planning Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
