COVID-19 has significantly impacted how our events are planned and executed. Involving a CVB or DMO at all stages of the meeting cycle is a sure way to partner with destination experts who can guide you with the myriad details, usually at no charge, to ensure the success of your event. 

Wallsh and Welsh!

Meetings industry veteran educator Bonnie Wallsh will also be joined by Don Welsh, president and CEO of Destinations International, for an informative discussion on meetings industry trends and how CVBs/DMOs are transitioning and augmenting their services for planners as in-person meetings resume, as well as services to help facilitate hybrid meetings.

Find out how your meeting planning colleagues have developed trusting working relationships with CVBs/DMOs in the new reality of hybrid and in-person events, and how you can adapt their tips and techniques for your own events. As a participant, you will receive a comprehensive checklist of the latest security requirements to add to your toolbox.

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

1.    Specific ways CVBs/DMOs can serve as your ombudsman and collaborator to successfully navigate your relationships with facilities and auxiliary services.

2.    The Top 10 essential criteria to include in an effective RFP.

3.    5 key tips to get the most from CVBs and DMOs.

4.    Guidelines for developing your own checklist of safety measures.

Earn CEUs: The Events Industry Council has reviewed the learning objectives of this activity and has indicated that attendees will receive 1 CE hours in the Meeting or Event Design Domain of the CMP or CMP-HC Standards.
