(Leesburg, VA) – February 2012 – The government sales team at The National Conference Center has compiled five east tips to simplify and streamline the many complex rules and regulations involved in the planning of government meetings. “Trying to educate non-government professionals and hotel sales people about government meeting rules can be a daunting task and a long journey”, said Sarah Vining, marketing manager at The National Conference Center, who compiled the list.
In a group discussion, the NCC team of veteran government meeting planners focused on ways meeting planners with the federal government could help ease the process. The team agreed that for government meeting planners, there are more hoops to jump through and tighter guidelines to follow than most non-government meeting planners, but all groups deserve face-to-face interaction.
