In our continuing venue showcase series, Andrew and Randy head out to an international airport to review meet and greet transportation procedures. Meet and greet and airport transportation is a component of many meetings. Often organizers arrange for their delegates, meeting attendees, to be picked up at the airport and transferred to their respective hotels. With so many external factors, weather in various parts of the continent, flight delays etc., it’s important that an event planning company understands the intricacies involved with meeting arriving passengers. To say that a contingency plan, plan B as it were, is essential would be an understatement.
Heavily regulated, airports often have strict procedures for personnel working at airports without security clearance. It’s vital for meet and greet staff to understand those restrictions and yet be visible for arriving delegates. And there are also strict procedures for vehicles that must be followed at major airports.
