Smart Meetings Launches 2011 Events
Industry Leader Expands Event Calendar to 12 Cities
The company’s one-day Smart Marts and three-day Smart Meetings match planners with hoteliers and destination representatives for one-on-one appointments in an intimate setting that’s conducive to networking and booking business on-site.The Smart Marts attract corporate, association and independent meeting planners from the cities where they are held, along with meeting industry suppliers from destinations throughout North America. The Smart Meetings are national in scope and include education sessions and a team-building event, in addition to business appointments and networking opportunities.
Thanks to previous success with these events and the growth of the magazine’s coverage from West Coast to national, Smart Meetings has expanded its schedule of 2011 events to 12 destinations across the U.S. It will hold Smart Marts in Atlanta; Scottsdale, Ariz.; New York; Seattle; Denver; Chicago; Washington, D.C.; San Diego; and Dallas. Smart Meetings will take place at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Orange County, Calif. and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa in Orlando, Fla.
The enlarged event schedule is an integral part of Smart Meetings ongoing expansion efforts. During recent months, the company has gone national, doubling the size of its office space and growing its staff to support present and future expansion in North America.
