The meetings landscape has been roiled by one game-changing issue after another recently, with Marriott and Hilton cutting commissions for independent planners and room poaching issues finally coming to a head in the legal arena. Both of these issues, and others that are just now bubbling to the surface, are causing a major disruption in the industry.
