As businesses and organizations become increasingly international, meetings and conventions are expected to become even more important. For many of these organizations, meetings are the only time they can bring their members together. Despite the spread of online communication, face-to-face interaction is irreplaceable. In addition, industries and businesses increasingly recognize the value of hiring professional meeting planners who can deliver top-notch meetings at the best available price.
