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.

Unprecedented times call for strategic measures. With so many planners wondering how best to plan for the event-specific challenges posed by COVID- 19, industry leaders and top associations have stepped up to offer a road map with trainings on everything from cleaning protocols to new contract clauses.

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic.
