Short Cuts:WEB SITES WE LIKE

Shop ’til your fingers drop. When you can’t find what you’re shopping for on the Web, Shopguide (www.shopguide.com), is the place to start. The site has a search engine, plus other interesting options that were under construction at press time, including a Bargain Basement, ShopGuru Cafe and International Bazaar.

Expanding capabilities. EventSource (www.eventsource.com), the event-planning search engine, has a new feature called One Click Destinations. Each month, several places are highlighted with information on total guest rooms, exhibit space, average hotel-room costs and listings of event sites, resorts, unique meeting spaces, recreation suggestions and more.

Picked for the podium. Need help with speaker searches? Leading Authorities (www.leadingauthorities.com) has a database of more than 600 speakers, searchable by name, topic, location, fee or any combination of criteria. A fun addition is the Who’s Hot? page, which showcases several in-demand presenters and offers sample videos online.
