TSNN Webinar Recording: Tips for Making a Lean, Mean, Logistics Machine

July 31, 2018
Tips for Making YOUR Event a Lean, Mean Logistics Machine

Even a slight logistics oversight can damage an event — and even worse, then shared on social media. One of the main responsibilities of meeting and conference planners is to manage the physical assets and human stakeholders of the event. It can be an exhausting, complicated, and fraught process. There are ways to improve the process though.

The discipline of Logistics Management addresses the tasks associated with on-site resource allocation—getting the right assets (food and beverage, audio-visual equipment, furniture, etc.) and human resources (volunteers, speakers, room moderators, technicians, for example) into the right places at the right times—before the event.

There are lots of advantages for meeting planners and event organizers associated with managing logistics efficiently, including developing progressive skill sets, advancing careers, and enhancing the bottom line.

Listen to moderator Michelle Bruno and a panel of meeting and conference industry experts to learn how to transform event logistics management into a time-saving, cost-reducing center of excellence that moves planners to a new level of proficiency.
