How do you know which event planning organizations are better than others? Meeting and event planning companies come in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately a lot of them come with empty promises as well. Of course that’s what industry associations like MPI (Meeting Professionals International) are for.

Of course on the serious side of things the moral of this story is to ask for references. If your meeting or event is a large one then perhaps a site visit might be in order as well. But one thing is for certain and that is there are good and bad meeting and event planning companies. Make sure you do your due diligence and select the right organization based on your needs.
