Meeting Planning Explained in GIFs

Planning a successful meeting or event requires an endless number of skill sets, from attention to detail to negotiation to problem solving and more. Sometimes, a little comic relief is necessary! Don't worry, we're here to help. We've figured out how to explain meeting planning in 7 GIFs.

What's first? One of the most important decisions you have to make - where? There are so many things to consider when selecting a meeting site. What type of accommodations do you need based on the size of your group? What destination will excite your attendees? Make this decision a good one. No pressure.

Did we say that was the most important thing to consider? Maybe we were wrong. Food is priority, and there are many factors that come into play when trying to make your guests happy. Nutritional concerns. Menu trends. Seasonal ingredients. Market availability. Shelf life. Just to name a few.

Start flexing your creative muscles, meeting planners. Now it's time to design the perfect look and feel for your event. What's your theme? And, what about your flower arrangements?

Remember when we said attention to detail is important? You'll need it when it comes to event logistics like catering, securing permits, insurance and guest transportation.

It's the big moment. Event setup, execution and tear down. Did someone say manual labor?

Tired yet? Now, time to follow up with guests. And, what are you going to do with all of this leftover food?

Woah. Great work! We knew you could do it. On to the next!
