EasyMeetings.Com - making it easy to host your next convention!
Meetings and conventions bring people together for a common purpose. EasyMeetings.com's planners work to ensure that this purpose is achieved seamlessly. Our Meeting Planners coordinate details of meetings and conventions from the speakers and meeting location to arranging for printed materials and audio-visual equipment. We work for nonprofit organizations, small businesses, professional and similar associations, hotels, large corporations, and government bureaus. While some organizations have internal meeting planning staffs, others hire us to enhance the production of their own staff or as independent meeting and convention planners to organize their events.

Our meeting and convention planners search for prospective meeting sites, which may be hotels, convention centers, or conference centers. They issue requests for proposals that state the meeting dates and outline the needs for your specific meeting or convention, including meeting and exhibit space, lodging, food and beverages, telecommunications, audio-visual requirements, transportation, and any other necessities. Once establishment respond with proposals describing what space and services they can supply, and at what prices, our meeting planners review these proposals and make recommendations to you, our client.

Once the location is selected, our planners can, if contracted, arrange support services, coordinate needs with the facility, prepare the site staff for the meeting and set up all forms of electronic communication needed for the meeting or convention such as e-mail, voice mail, video and online communication.

If requested, our planners can register attendees and issue name badges, coordinate lodging reservations, and arrange transportation. They make sure that all necessary supplies are ordered and transported to the meeting site on time, that meeting rooms are equipped with sufficient seating and audio-visual equipment, that all exhibits and booths are set up properly and that all materials are printed.

Our planners are experienced in negotiating agreements with facilities and suppliers. These agreements, which can be complex, are often negotiated more than a year in advance of the meeting. These agreements may include requiring the planner to reserve a block or certain number of rooms for meeting attendees and the penalties that may be imposed if the rooms are not filled. Our certified meeting planners are sometimes given a budget by our clients and is asked to create a detailed plan of expenditures, forecasting what each aspect of the event will cost.

Our planners oversee multiple functions, adhere to strict deadlines, and can effectively coordinate the activities of several different groups of people. They travel regularly to attend meetings and to visit prospective meeting sites.

Meeting and convention planners have excellent written and verbal communications skills as well as interpersonal skills. They are detail-oriented with excellent organizational savvy, and can multi-task, meet tight deadlines, and maintain composure under pressure. They speak multiple languages and have advanced computer skills.
