Whenever the term “meeting planner” comes up in a conversation with non-industry folks, I am always asked the same question over and over again… what does a meeting planner actually do? As anyone in our industry is aware, a meeting planner does “everything”!
A meeting planner plans, coordinates, tweaks and delivers all the significant (as well as the minutiae) parts and details required to ensure a successful meeting, conference and/or event. The meeting planner ensures each and every item that requires attention gets it and in the end every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed.
Over the years I have learned that a meeting planner makes sure all the particulars that go unseen and are never given a second thought by the attendees, gets done in the best possible way.
In this video from Hyatt, they prove why working with a meeting planner (and the Hyatt) is important and that no detail will be missed to ensure a most successful meeting.
