Site selection is one of the biggest challenges facing event and meeting planners. This class focuses on the process the meeting and event manager should use in making informed site selection decisions. The planner must first know how to assess the needs of the meeting or event, understand how to access the needs of the event, understand how to research the options of a site available, and conduct comprehensive site visits. Through this class, the meeting/event manager will be prepared for the critical steps of negotiating, including principles of group pricing and compiling leverage data. Note: Wear comfortable shoes. Class will walk to nearby venues within a five block radius.
