On the SpotDo you have meetings-related dreams (or nightmares) that you are willing to share?

"I think every planner does. I often dream I have worked hard and everything is in place, only for a disaster to hit the day of the show. None of the equipment turned up, and the crowd never came. I remember dreaming about how I was going to explain this to the client."

“It is not a question so much of waking up in the middle of the night but more of not being able to sleep at all. The nearer I get to an event, the more I worry. I worry about what I might have forgotten.”
Gloria Schmitz
Meeting Coordinator

“In fact, I dreamt of meeting planning last night. I’ve been on vacation and enjoyed uninterrupted sleep, but as soon as I get home, I go back to thinking about events. The specifics of the dream I do not remember, just that I wake up realizing what still needs to be done.”
