The session with Judith Huisman of Meetingselect will focus on how to make meetings more purposeful and create a strategic meeting policy in small to medium-sized organisations.
Why Strategic Meeting Management For Small Businesses?
The adoption rate of Strategic Meetings Management is still low, according to a recent report by CWT Travel. But equally, businesses need to start thinking more strategically. Monitoring meeting spend and implementing policies are key.
Especially small and medium-sized companies are struggling to adapt to the changes in the industry, shorter lead times, demand surplus & increasing rates. Companies must have a plan of action in place.
Our session at GBTA focuses on how to accurately analyse meeting & travel spend and what factors should be included in any meeting policy. The session also incorporates best practices to accommodate the needs of planners in small and medium-sized meeting businesses.
What is Strategic Meetings Management?
Amongst a few other elements, strategic meetings management includes various processes like centralised registration data, strategic processes, contract negotiation & workflow management
As meeting technology advances in terms of affordability and flexibility, it's now more widely available to smaller businesses. Further, research study claims that smaller companies actually achieve a higher rate of success when implementing SMM.
With the opportunity at GBTA Conference 2019, Meetingselect will be present to boost the awareness of SMM for small businesses.
