Booking an event or meeting venue can be a tricky business, and it’s hard to know whether or not you got a fair deal. The New Jersey Chapter of Meeting Professionals International has stepped in to alleviate this problem by hosting an educational meeting dedicated to the subject.

On June 9, Calvin Anderson, director of Revenue Management, New York Hilton Midtown—the largest hotel in New York—will shed light on this process and give tips on how to ensure you’re receiving a fair deal.

As part of the event, there will also be an industry panel sharing their own experience and a Q&A with a supplier, corporate partner and an independent meeting planner.

The meeting will be held at The Kenilworth hotel from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Lunch will be served.
