Meeting Traveler Magazine Announces
2009 Private Meetings Summit

Winter Park, Fla. – One of the most innovative events in the travel industry, Meeting Traveler’s 2009 Private Meetings Summit, will be held at the Bold New Eden Roc Renaissance Beach Resort & Spa in Miami Beach on April 19-22, 2009. This extraordinary event will again bring together representatives from a vast collection of fine hotel and resort properties with the travel industry’s most prominent meeting and incentive professionals to create truly exceptional meetings and events.

Since its launch in 2002, the Private Meetings Summit has become the industry standard, focusing exclusively on building business relationships in an intimate setting using its exclusive appointment scheduling process. The format for the Summit is highly efficient: Each property meets with buyers face to face in scheduled 30-minute appointments. Appointments are made prior to the event online through, where decision-making meeting planners are matched with the resort or hotel that best meets their group business needs. 

“The distinctive and efficient format provides a unique means to successfully plan and book meetings,” says Lisa Theodore, Publisher of Meeting Traveler and the upscale travel guide Resorts & Great Hotels. “We’re very pleased to be working with the Bold New Eden Roc. Their renovation and commitment to exceptional service will make our event a home run on every count. Our meeting planner partners will be very pleased with the hotel’s sophisticated, chic and contemporary new look combined with cutting-edge technology.”

After 18 months and a $180 million transformation, the Bold New Eden Roc will emerge as a chic icon of style and sophistication overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Miami Beach in fall/winter 2008. The resort’s transformation has doubled its size, with 70,000 square feet of event space and public areas and a 21,000-square-foot destination spa. The focal point of the Bold New Eden Roc will be an oasis of pools, water features and gardens, threaded with walkways and intimate seating areas. For more information, please visit

Meeting Traveler is published by Bonnier Corporation,, one of the largest consumer-publishing groups in America and the leading media company serving passionate, highly engaged audiences through more than 40 special-interest magazines and related multimedia projects and events.
