Site selection happens at the beginning of the process of a meeting, after the goals and objectives and budget are created, and while destination (city/state/country) selections are narrowed down.

Most groups and individuals selecting a hotel, conference center or convention center know, in their heads, what they’re looking for.  Preparing a written* checklist is a better way to ensure the items most important to your meeting and audience will be sought.

Join Meetings Today and meetings industry educator Joan Eisenstodt, chief strategist for Eisenstodt Associates (, for this one-hour webinar that will arm you with a strategy for success.

By participating in this webinar, you will learn to:

  • Delve deeper into questions to ask about areas that include costs (taxes, service charge and what many call “hidden costs”)
  • Discern what accessibility means and how, in an actual or verbal site inspection, to look differently
  • Determine the level of safety and security for all venues used
  • Use what’s in the news to inform your selection of destinations and sites

*Written means by hand, on an electronic device, or taking one already created and adding. It’s something that is more than “in your head,” where details become confusing with so much to see and do!

Got questions? To help Joan prepare, send questions to and on the subject line “Site Selection Webinar Question.” We’ll try to get to all of your questions during the webinar or in the “Take 10” after.

Earn CEUs: The Events Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Site Management Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
