Description: The webcast will discuss why busy planners might want to consider using a third-party company to source and execute the contractual details of their meetings and events. Planners will explore how to work third parties into the mix to enhance the effectiveness of meetings management strategies. It will identify situations where it would be beneficial to outsource specific functions such as site selection, negotiation, and on-site management, and when it's desirable to outsource the management of an entire event.
