Short Cuts:
On the SpotWhen site-inspecting a hotel, what do you look for first?

“First, I consider the overall ambiance of the hotel and then the meeting rooms. I am looking for a place where our members can sit, congregate and feel relaxed, without that place always having to be a restaurant or a bar.”

Martin Chomsky
Business Manager
American Mosquito Control Association
Eatontown, N.J.

“I look for a hotel that suits my meeting’s needs, and my primary consideration is typically the convenience of its location. On average, my events involve 200 people who come from all over the country, so airport hotels are among my favorites. We most recently met in Denver.”

Suzanne Arteaga
Meeting Planner
Association for Enterprise Integration
Arlington, Va.

“The amount of meeting space is the most important aspect of site selection, as usually we have eight to 10 seminars going on at the same time.”

Gloria Farrow, CMP
Conference Coordinator
American Dance Therapy Association
Columbia, Md.
