Prevue’s Global Meeting Planning Summit, to be held May 22 to 23 at MEET on Bowery in New York City, will focus on the topics that mean the most to you when planning events outside the U.S.
An esteemed lineup of speakers at the Global Meeting Planning Summit includes Tyra W. Hilliard, PhD, JD, CMP, who will explore the intricacies of hotel contracts as they relate to international meetings, from force majeure to surcharges. Attendees will break out afterwards in roundtables to discuss their own contract challenges.
Theresa Thomas, Director, Senior Vice President of the Powered by iJET Business Unit, iJET International is passionate about the need for organizations to focus on their meeting attendees, not just individual business travelers, when it comes to security. In “Beware a False Sense of Security,” she will pinpoint threats are unique to meeting attendees traveling internationally and how you can be better prepared.
Another program highlight will be a session by Kristel Nesrallah, Head of Business Development, Strategic Meetings, North America, at American Express Global Business Travel, “Rates, Dates & Space”—a snapshot comparison of data in these three areas from different regions of the world, from American Express’ 2017 Global Meetings & Events Forecast.
The program opens on Monday, May 22, with site visits of the host hotels, Hotel 50 Bowery and Dream Downtown, followed by an evening reception on the rooftop of The Knickerbocker.
