Whether you are a relatively new Meeting/Event Planner or one who has been in the business as a Planner or Supplier for many years there are secrets that you need to know. In this presentation we will explore some of the most basic things that both Planners and Supplier deal with on a daily basis and hopefully help improve the attendee’s productivity as they go about the business of meetings and events. This will be a participatory interactive workshop where we will look for the attendees to share some of their secrets as well. So be on your toes!!!
