Meeting Planner MasterMind Training

Meeting Planning MasterMind Training

Join us for Meeting Planning MasterMind!
It's the best way to Master your career and move your skills to a new level.

Meeting Planning MasterMind Training is the newest and most advanced technique in training meeting planners on the fine details of their jobs taught from the Insider's view of a hotel or convention center. Many meeting planning courses are taught by meeting planners, but the MasterMind session gives the planner access to the Operations, Finances, Negotiating and Contracting priorities of a hotel or convention center.

During each segment of the training, a MasterMind Workshop reviews the new information and allows planners the time and guidance to plan their next steps in Site Selection, Negotiations or Contracting.


Best of all, the Convention Industry Council has extended 15 CE's, Continuing Education Credit Hours, (CE's) for attendees of the Meeting Planning MasterMind to apply to their CMP. A CMP requires 25 CE hours over a 5-year period—the Meeting Planning MasterMind delivers more than half the CMP requirement in a two-day, fact-packed session!
