As we begin to navigate back to face-to-face meetings moving forward, meeting professionals will be faced with new challenges. Tighter budgets, new hotel fees and surcharges, and being tasked to do “more with less” are a real reality.

Meetings are essential, and facing these challenges head on as meetings rebound are paramount. Expectations from stakeholders continue to increase as organizations increasingly focus on Strategic Meetings Management initiatives to maximize revenue.

In this free one-hour webinar, Robyn Mietkiewicz, strategic partner for INNOV8 Meetings + Events, will help you learn how to avoid hidden fees and discover creative cost savings techniques to impact your bottom-line. Attendees will also learn how to communicate these savings to their stakeholders in an impactful way.   

By participating in this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • Understand our current marketplace and how it affects a planner’s strategy during negotiations.  
  • Discuss potential hidden fees and how to circumvent the unexpected.
  • Learn creative cost-savings measures to impact your bottom line.
  • Measure your success with the creation of a Cost Savings Report so you can communicate these savings to your stakeholders in an impactful way.
