A conference planning guide typically includes a checklist of items that need to be completed to make the conference run smoothly. But does your conference planning guide also include timing? Meaning how much time have you allotted for all of the components to the conference.
Now, of course, the conference planning guide most often does include timing. This is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek question as the video below comically highlights. But, comedy aside, the message is that timing is a crucial part of your conference planning.
We have featured Hyatt videos here in the past. Hyatt has done a great job in their web-based marketing by presenting conference planning topics with a humorous twist to get their point across. While they are obviously intended to be lighthearted, the take away message is that bad meetings do happen. However, it’s how a conference planner reacts to these anticipated problems as to whether or not you’re in good hands with your conference planning. We tend to think that you just might be in good hands with Hyatt.
