Hosted By: Mike Waterman, Chief Sales Officer, Visit Orlando
Guest Speakers: David Blansfield, Vice President & Group Publisher, and Lauren Edelstein, Vice President & Content Director, for Northstar Meetings Group
How are meeting planners weathering the pandemic? Northstar Meetings Group has surveyed planners from all over the world to assess what their business plans look like today and how they are preparing for recovery. Northstar’s David Blansfield and Lauren Edelstein will share the detailed results of this widescale research, including the changes planners anticipate, changes to the volume and size of meetings they are planning, when they will begin to take place, in what types of facilities, and more. This webinar will also share how the survey brought to light the challenges planners are experiencing in working with suppliers to rebook business, and what will be different when meetings start up again.
