The entire dynamic of the way information is disseminated at meetings is changing from top down to bottom up. How can companies that host meetings make the shift from thinking of the meeting-goer as a passive attendee to an active participant in the event? 


 Plan your next small meeting like a boss with these 4 tips.

1. Get the Right Help
You need a single point of contact - someone who's on site, ready to help, and reachable by phone call, text, or email at any time. Make sure your vendor is easy to work with before, during, and after your meeting.

2. Prioritize Venues that Prioritize You
Ensure that your vendor makes you feel welcome - regardless of your meeting's size or needs-and helps you plan great events that respect your budget requirements. Ask if they will sweeten the deal with planner reward programs.

3. Find a Venue that Exceeds Expectations
Every small meeting comes with its own challenges, and finding the right venue can take a lot of time and effort. Make sure your hotel can cater to your attendees' expectations with unique venues rich in local flavor; fresh, contemporary meeting spaces; and flexible room configurations.

4. Find a Hotel that Offers Helpful Extras
Search for venues with a variety of services and amenities, like reliable, complimentary Wi-Fi; customizable signage; options to preview the space; and unique catering menues.
