#MPIWI

 

 

 

We’ve gotten through 2020 – now what? As things start opening up again, are we planning virtual, hybrid or in-person meetings? How can we effectively plan when protocols are changing, each state has different opening schedules and some properties aren’t fully re-staffed and open yet? If you used to plan 12-24 months out and now 4-6 months is more the norm, how’s that going to work?

This interactive session with Carolyn Browning, CMP, CMM, HMCC of MEETing Needs, LLC will include a panel discussion with Chapter planners & suppliers talking about how they are designing flexible options to accommodate different needs and preferences.

Panelists include:

  • Farrah Slinger -  Event Essentials
  • Laura Maclsaac, CMP  -  Monona Terrace Convention Center
  • Cheryl Oswald, CMM, CMP  -  Kohl's Department Stores
  • Kathryn Gleesing, MBA, CMP, DMCP  -  Dm-Connection & Events

Designing with Flexibility

We’ve gotten through 2020 – now what? As things start opening up again, are we planning virtual, hybrid or in-person meetings? How can we effectively plan when protocols are changing, each state has different opening schedules and some properties aren’t fully restaffed and open yet? If you’re used to plan 12-24 months out and now 4-6 months is more the norm, how’s that going to work?

This interactive session will include a panel discussion with Chapter planners & suppliers talking about how they are designing flexible options to accommodate different needs and preferences.

Learner Objectives:
Gain insight about planning for our ‘new realities’
Discover what decision-making processes your peers are using to choose which option is best for them
Learn some keys for communicating our ‘new realities’ to stakeholders for buy-in and success.
