From pinch hitter to manager, Meetings & Events USA stepped in to help a non-profit whose internal meeting planner left mid-way through planning their annual conference.
Meetings & Events USA received a call from the management of a regional non-profit panicked because their internal meeting planner left the organization with only 2 months left before the date of their annual conference. The overworked staff wasn’t able to pull the resources together to finish the preparations and didn’t even have a clear picture of what had been finished and what was still needed. We were handed a stack of papers, a couple of CDs full of information and their specifications. In less than one week we digested the information, returned a written plan with timeline and responsibilities as well as an up-to-date budget, and started on implementation. Seven weeks later we were on-site as the hotel liaison and registration managers and we witnessed a successful conference with nary an attendee or sponsor aware of the change. We’re proud to be working with this group three annual conferences and several regional meetings later!
