Meetings Intelligence Exchange Offers Groundbreaking
Free Service for Meeting Planner Professionals
20, 2008 - Before Meetings Intelligence Exchange, professional meeting
planners encountered many obstacles when determining whether or not a facility
would be useful for their meetings. They had to go on their own instinct
when it came to making a final decision. Yet, now figuring out whether
a facility is a good meeting site is as simple as logging into one’s account
and taking a look at the reviews that have been posted.
The reviews are written by other meeting planning professions who use a special five-point Expectation Scale to determine the worthiness of a facility they visited. Through the Expectation Scale, meeting planners must note how the facility fared according to thirteen criteria set forth by Meetings Intelligence Exchange.
“Our review standards are well defined and designed to maximize the
consistency of our members’ reviews.” Notes founder Tim Ryan.
Suppliers can also find use in Meetings Intelligence Exchange. After paying an annual subscription fee, suppliers can see how planners are evaluating their services. They can also see how they compare to other facilities that get higher ratings. Additionally, suppliers are given an opportunity to advertise and promote themselves to the meeting planner professionals in the network.
As far as fees for meeting planners, nothing needs to be paid to join the network. One will have to contribute by writing reviews, but this should be understandable. What makes Meetings Intelligence Exchange so powerful is that all of the reviews are submitted by fellow meeting planners, not advertisers. When the reviewing power is in the hands of the meeting planner, there’s a greater chance the reviews submitted will be more objective.
Many meeting planners have already realized such things, since Meetings Intelligence Exchange has acquired hundreds of new members since it’s debut in December 2007.
