WHO WE SURVEYED
Of the 173 people who answered M&C's Meeting Spend Survey, 28 percent hold job titles as directors or department heads, and 27 percent are meeting planners. For nearly three quarters (72 percent), planning meetings and events is their primary responsibility. The majority work for associations (37 percent) or corporations (34 percent), or they are self-employed or affiliated with third-party planning firms (16 percent).
