Working with Multiple Planning Partners for Maximum Meeting Benefits

Date: September 26, 2013, 1:00pm

There is a unique set of benefits and strengths that comes with each type of planning partner a meeting professional or organization might choose to engage to help them find and plan a meeting or event.  Are you currently using the combination of resources to your maximum benefit and save you both time and money?

Hotel NSOs or GSOs, independent and third party planners, CVBs, all can help you in different ways to find what you are looking for and achieve your meeting goals in any destination.  Many planners have voiced confusion over just what each of these resources brings to the table and how their efforts can be combined and collaborative verses competitive.  

Join us for our webinar to explore:

  • What each partner brings to the table (exactly what is and how does a GSO/NSO, third party planner or CVB work for me
  • It doesn’t have to be a wrestling match-building maximum collaboration to your benefit
  • Exercising control and creating transparency between the parties you choose
