Are you a meeting planner or event organiser?

Join us for MESA's next Meeting Planner Forum about Managing Shorter Lead Times!

Thursday 17th October 2024  

1400 - 1530 BST / 1500 -1630 CEST


Within our meetings and events industry, there is a trend for clients asking for events to be run within shorter lead times.  Is this the same within other industries and how are they managing?

Is it still possible to work with shorter lead times and create the 'wow' experience for delegates?  How does it impact on the overall experience? We will discuss whether this trend is likely to continue and whether we should be adapting for the longer-term and changing our own business models.  We also look at how this affects our budgeting and in what cases we should turn the event / business down to manage our own business better as well as how quickly we can react to shorter lead times. 

Join our MESA members who are here to help guide you with tips about using services, tools and different  technology to help manage this process, as well as the do's and don'ts, so they can help you walk through the journey of planning your next event.  

Our panel debate will look at both sides of this challenge - of whether to adapt and change your own business model or not.

It’s your chance to meet with knowledgeable experts in considering your next event requirements and be able to discuss your ideas with them in a trustworthy environment.  Find out the best ways to ensure your clients have the best experience when dealing with you; your company and your product.
