Meeting and Event Planning Professional Development Series by Eventinterface

Planning conferences and meetings is becoming more complicated. In the past, our responsibilities mainly entailed logistics, and attendee, venue, and vendor management. Now, it is no longer enough for planners to be experts in these fields alone. Planners now need to be marketers, product managers, negotiation and contract specialists, security experts, digital media and technical whizzes. Even planners with years of experience can be overwhelmed by the new specialized areas we need to add to our tool box.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP
