Three Meetings in One
As the economy changes, businesses, big and small, feel the pressure to revolutionize their products and services. As the corporate ladder becomes more crowded, companies seem to be creating their own rungs to get a leg up. In any industry, this means finding new angles. In the meeting planning industry, it means simplifying the process.
Many companies are capable of planning a successful face-to-face meeting. However, capable is no longer sufficient. More often than not, consumers come across situations where they could be getting more for their money without even knowing it. It’s like walking into an ice-cream shop and ordering a scoop of vanilla without the person at the counter informing you that all toppings are free of charge. Sure, you will still enjoy each bite of the treat but how much better could it have been?
The same mentality can be applied when referring to meeting planning. With Summit Management Services, when you order a vanilla cone, you get the works. It is not simply “a” meeting anymore. Now, instead of only getting the face-to-face or teleconference meeting, clients also receive an online and on-demand meeting. Summit has made the industry three-dimensional, taking it from the standard meeting, to three meetings in one. Our multi-dimensional events address the in-person audience, virtual attendees, and post-meeting archives. Our focus is on managing all of the event planning, meeting production and audio visual details so that the key reason for the event, the big idea comes to the surface in a compelling and powerful way.
Still, one may think, “But I like my vanilla cone just the way it is. Sure, I like chocolate syrup and sprinkles, but I don’t really need them.” However, as previously addressed, “good enough” is no longer sufficient. Say one hundred people are invited to a company meeting. Ninety of the invited guests accept the invitation and plan to attend. The ten remaining guests send their regrets. Should they be deprived of the knowledge their colleagues will gain at the conference?
With Summit, they do not have to be. The entire meeting, or portions of the meeting, are recorded and placed on a secure, online website for on-demand viewing. Also, imagine being on-site when one of the key speakers is unable to arrive due to bad weather or airport delays. Such a situation does not have to be a crisis. Summit Management has developed a live, online streaming capability where the speaker can present as if they were in the room. Any guest who cannot be in attendance can partake in important parts of the meeting with online participation. Participants can experience online polling options and live back and forth Q&A.
TALK ABOUT SAFETY AND GUARANTEED RETURN ON INVESTMENT!
When looking for a meeting planning company, remember, the above should be a requirement. Finding a company that can be the one-stop-shop is vital. Not only does it minimize cost, but also it minimizes stress. Summit Management Services is the leader in the design and logistical execution of world-class business meetings because it executes three successful and exceptional meetings in one, every time.
