0.1 CEU - 1 hour + Q&A

Sponsored by:    

“Affective Forecasting," the psychological study of how one feels into the future is front and center after 2020. The experience of 2020 has been unexpected, uncertain, and devastating in many ways. We now face a world, country, economy, and industry traveling a road much less traveled by, as we begin to restart our global commerce engine and hospitality industry.

This session will identify the questions we should be asking as we plan meetings and events for our organizations. We will also include tips and tricks to make the search process, contracting, and execution of a successful event easier for you as an administrative professional

Learning Objectives:

- Meeting environment expected changes for the remainder of 2022 and beyond
- Current state of the economy and expectations for 2022 and Future
- A review of travel experience changes and expectations
- The need to engage, which is still ever present
- Adoption of technology and process in a “Fast Forward” society

Hot Tip: Date flexibility while planning events will provide more options and give the venue the opportunity to provide a proposal which outlines their “need dates” offering potential cost savings to your organization. Within your request outline multiple date options or keep the specific date open providing a date range & flexible day of week pattern. Example: 12 guest rooms for 3 nights with a meeting room for 12, meals and golf for 2 days in early May 2023.
