Meeting the Moment – Helping Planners Plan

Helping Planners Plan
Virtual Think Tank Offers Support

As COVID-19 vaccinations roll out across the country, those of us in the devastated meetings industry are beginning to see a bright light on the horizon.

Recovery and renewal are on the way, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be a quick return to business as usual.

From hybrid meetings with a greater emphasis on technology to new approaches to culinary, team building, and meeting flow, the way we meet has changed—in some ways, likely for the long term.

To help meeting planners navigate these changes, whether your next event is officially scheduled or not even on the calendar yet, Benchmark has assembled an internal panel of experts across every aspect of meeting design. The panel is offering planners customized, obligation-free virtual consultations to discuss the most complex issues facing meetings in 2021 and beyond.

“The goal of these sessions isn’t about setting a meeting date,” says Eric Gavin, Benchmark’s chief sales officer. “It’s about having constructive conversations with our meeting planning partners and working together on solutions that help them get back to business.”

Meet the Panel
Our panel of experts includes leadership across technology, food and beverage, team building, and meeting design, and each expert is backed by a team of dedicated professionals committed to helping planners develop safe and productive meetings.

Customized Consultations
Consider this panel your sounding board for new ideas, a resource for best practices, and your own personal meetings and events think tank.

During a personalized session with them, you can expect to gain meaningful support working through your event budget, addressing safety concerns, and understanding ways to support the physical and psychological needs of your meeting attendees.
