Until LIVE events are thriving again, our Virtual Meetings Series will redefine hospitality networking via an authentic virtual reality micro-trade show experience. While our platform is novel, it’s proven to leave the participating meeting planners, hotel partners, and destination associates feeling like you were in a live business-social environment.
Your Registration Includes:
- COMPLIMENTARY participation for any person who is actively engaged or even temporarily on hiatus to due Covid-19, but who will be resuming work in short time as an active meeting planner.
- Ultimately, we want to be the community that acts as the bridge to the recovery of the Incentive Travel, Meetings, and Events Industry.
- You’ll meet with 6-18 Hospitality Suppliers and engage in a 8-Minute Speed Meetings™.
- You’ll be in attendance with 20-25 of your colleagues from different Corporate, Association, Incentive, or Third-Party Meeting Planning Companies. They are also looking for ideas and locations to book future group meetings, events, and incentive travel.
- Each attending supplier will have a drawing prize, given away to the attending meeting planners. Awards range from 1 or 2 night stays to gift baskets or gift certificates.
- Full Audio/Visual capabilities are available throughout our Virtual World, and between you and the attending hotelier.
