Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) Products
Meeting Evolution (ME) Strategic Meetings Management (SMM) products are available as individually deployed modules or a complete ME SMM SUITE that provides technology to manage the full life-cycle of your meetings.
Establish the core requirements by submitting a request for a meeting or event. Define the approval process based on the department, type and/or budget level. Route the request for review and approval before assigning to a planner. Once approved, the details from the request go directly into the ME SOURCING module to form the basis of the e-RFP. It is great to establish corporate standards as well as valuable for 3rd party management companies who can provide ME REQUEST to their customers, so they can control the submissions and make sure the event/meeting has been approved before assigning resources.

e-RFPs submitted through ME SOURCING have one of the highest rates of response because of the quality and completeness of the information. With more than 100,000 properties in our property/vendor database and the ability to refine your selection criteria, properties that receive an ME originated e-RFP understand the meeting will be held and they have the ability to respond directly into the ME SMM database. You then have the ability to quickly review the status of an e-RFP, send updates, reminders, and notices. ME SOURCING incorporates all facets of global hotel sourcing, custom hotel contracting, meeting consolidation/leveraged spend, cost savings/risk reduction, and strategic reporting available on-line 24/7.

While many registration solutions take a template or one-size-fits-all approach, ME REGISTRATION goes a major step further – while we provide you with standard templates that simplify the set up and parameters of your registration, we work with you as your partner to make sure that the on-line registration for each meeting addresses all of the unique characteristics and captures the data you need to accurately manage your meetings. Using state-of-the-art development tools, we work with you to develop the registration pages, database elements for registration and housing, and the strategic reports you need to stay on top of your registration and manage at the highest level. Best of all – we structure our fees based on what works best for you and the nature of your meetings. Whether it’s an all-inclusive annual rate covering unlimited meetings and registrations or a per-meeting set up and nominal per registrant fee, we have the solution that will not only fit your budget, but give you the tools you need to manage all aspects of your registration and housing.
