ABOUT MEETING EVOLUTION
Before Meeting Evolution was started, I spent 8 years working with Jennifer W. Brown, CMP, SMMC, President of Meeting Sites Resource understanding the process of event planning. Jennifer was the director of Meeting Services for PriceWaterhouseCoopers for 20 years before joining Meeting Sites Resource in 1996.
While working with Jennifer it became apparent that there were technology providers offering solutions to event planners but from a technology perspective. As I did market research with focus groups, clients and hotel partners, the gap in what was available and what a professional planner needed was pretty big. The technology available at that time stopped at the suppliers proposal of availability and had very limited financial reporting.
In 2008, we started Meeting Evolution with the purpose of creating strategic meeting management software solutions to the meetings and events industry from the professional meeting planners perspective. Meeting Evolution offers robust sourcing, event planning, attendee registration and surveys. Meeting Evolution also offers detailed supplier proposals of availability, sleeping room and meeting space confirmation reports, contract management workflow and robust financial reporting that allows your organization to answer the question, "Where are we spending our money?" and "How do leverage our total meeting spend in negotiations?"
I look forward to discussing with you how Meeting Evolution can help your organization provide business intelligence to manage your events strategically.
