Not all meeting types are the same, the traditional SMM and technology approach to Simple Meetings is often too heavy, too much detail and time and labor intensive. There are ready to go solutions ready to go right now that could be right for your program. During this session, hear what meeting managers and suppliers in this space have to say about:

  • Why their solutions could work for you,
  • What they know about this meeting type
  • Why it should no longer be called SMALL meetings.
  • What you can do to enhance the value you bring to your program by applying a unique approach
