The “Internet of Things” and Its Impact on Meetings

MEETINGS, INCENTIVES, CONFERENCES, AND EXHIBITIONS (MICE) MANAGEMENT
NYU School of Professional Studies

According to the Convention Industry Council, of the 1.83 million meetings held in 2012, approximately 88 percent were classified as being corporate, convention, trade show, or incentive in nature. Given the significant economic impact of meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE), it is no surprise that more hospitality and events professionals are focusing on this important segment of the tourism industry. This course provides an introduction to the inherent opportunities and challenges within specialized MICE planning; an understanding of the economic value these groups represent; and the knowledge and skills that are required to develop a MICE business strategy, including how to attract new business and how to keep it once you have it. Learn how client goals, resources, and challenges are unique to each type of event, and gain knowledge to expertly navigate the complicated road of supplier engagement and risk management.

YOU’LL WALK AWAY WITH

∙ Effective sales strategies to attract clients
∙ The knowledge to select and evaluate appropriate venues

IDEAL FOR
