Conference Venues Offer Meeting Planning Deals

According to Benchmark Hospitality International, meeting planners today are "getting serious about learning environments." Dedicated meeting environments such as conference centers are becoming more popular, as they can deliver a focused learning environment with just the necessities—and easy-to-measure ROI.

Conference venues are catching on to this change in attitude and starting to offer meeting planners great deals akin to those found at hotel brands. Take, for example, a recent email ad I received from AMA Executive Conference Centers. In addition to its standard cost-saving features (no food and beverage minimums, no sleeping room commitment, no set-up charges), planners can also take advantage of AMA's new stimulus offer. Valid until December 30, 2009, planners have free use of a projector and PC at a meeting held at an AMA conference center.

What do you think? Are conference centers rising to the top of your venue options this year?
