Connectivity for Meetings and Events

Watch on demand now.

In today's connected world, it's hard to imagine a time when access to the internet wasn't within the palm of everyones hands. Whether using a meeting app, taking notes, texting, emailing or posting to social media, connectivity is a vital part of everyday life and every meeting. Because of this, online access is now an expectation rather than a perk. While this makes organizing and executing events a more efficient process, protecting valuable information stored on personal devices now must be a high priority for planners.

Poachers use pilfered attendee lists to pick off unsuspecting registrants from official blocks. Pirates will do the same. At best, theyll book victims into subpar venues - and at worst providing no accommodations, and absconding with deposits.

Is the hotel Wi-Fi network in your room and meeting space secure? Are your registration and computer lab devices protected? Creating a cyber-safe environment is crucial, not only because of attendees' expectations, but also because every phone, tablet and laptop is an entry point for potential harm to planners, delegates and their events.

No matter what you call them, these practices are all a version of consumer fraud. In this session we review the results of the CIC APEX Standards Committee CMP survey on Piracy/Poaching on who is affected, how they are affected, and what they are doing about this growing problem.

• Share data & tips from the CIC APEX Whitepaper & tool kit on Piracy/Poaching
• Discuss the various ways cyber threats occur and share what to do to protect your meeting.

Cyber Safety for Meetings & Events: Is Your Head in the Cloud?

Watch on demand now.

In today's connected world, it's hard to imagine a time when access to the internet wasn't within the palm of everyone’s hands. Whether using a meeting app, taking notes, texting, emailing or posting to social media, connectivity is a vital part of everyday life – and every meeting. Because of this, online access is now an expectation rather than a perk. While this makes organizing and executing events a more efficient process, protecting valuable information stored on personal devices now must be a high priority for planners.

Is the hotel Wi-Fi network in your room and meeting space secure? Are your registration and computer lab devices protected?

Hotelier Confidential: Strategies on Capturing and Operating Healthcare Meetings

Watch on demand now.

In the current environment of highly regulated meetings which include Health Care Professionals (HCPs), hoteliers need to know the fine points of how to properly market their venue to the healthcare industry. Once a piece of business is booked, the rest of the hotel’s operational team needs to know how to manage the meeting in accordance with the client’s interpretation with the regulations and guidelines. This session will provide insights and strategies on how to book and manage meetings in this specialized sector of business. The session will be led by Betsy Bondurant, a Subject Matter Expert in HealthCare and Life Science meetings. Case studies, current examples and hands-on activities will facilitate the learning process.

Improved Communications = Better Purchasing Process

Watch on demand now.

This session will focus on how buyers and sellers can improve communications in order to develop a better buyer process for meetings and events. The proliferation of technology tools to help support the sourcing process have been both positive and negative. The electronic Requests for Proposal (eRFP) provides quick access to numerous options and the ability to easily compare data side by side. As an unintended consequence, hotelier in-boxes can end up being flooded with RFPs that they have little chance of winning, and planners are not getting the responses they had anticipated. The current record breaking demand for meeting space has exacerbated the situation because buyers are sending out even more RFPs in anticipation of lack of availability. Our conversation will examine how planners can effectively communicate their needs and how suppliers can respond with a compelling response in the digital age. 

Learner outcomes: 
1. Buyers – learn the benefits of communicating the “Why” behind your requests 
2. Sellers – learn how to differentiate your response from others 
3. Everyone – learn communication tips that can shift a piece of potential business from a “decline” to a signed contract
