Hundreds, even thousands of hours are spent planning a meeting up to a year in advance. Some of your key personnel, management team, and administrative support are pulled into an ocean of material design, telephone calls, faxes, contracts, vendor selections, interaction with meeting participants about flight arrival times, accommodations, meal issues, and internal meeting after internal meeting to ensure proper orchestration of the program.

Imagine how much your company is spending on this development and administration! Imagine how much more productive your key management and personnel could be if they were focusing on their core competencies and earning valuable revenue for your organization. Why take them away from that?
