Session Description 

RFP Reconstructed – A hands on approach to improving the attractiveness of your meeting.

By now we can appreciate the triple digit increases in lead volume hotels are receiving.  So how can you make sure the request for proposal (RFP) for your meeting or convention gets the attention and response it deserves?  Not only do you need to know WHAT you should include but also HOW to tailor it for the destination, facilities and hotels you’re considering.  In this highly interactive learning lab, roll up your sleeves and  work together with your colleagues and industry experts at roundtables to reconstruct and improve the RFPs, CVBs and hotels regularly receive.  And you are welcome to bring your own RFP for group evaluation and discussion.


  • Learn how to apply key principles and practices for improving your RFP.
  • Identify the most important questions to ask hotels and CVBs in reconstructing your RFP.
  • Understand how CVB and hotels size up the value of your event.
