Every event professional knows that one of the first steps of conference planning is budgeting. Sometimes a budget must be created before you even receive approval to plan an event.
Once dates and locations have been solidified, locking down and contracting with the hotel and agency partners is a top priority.
The Americas Commercial Conference presented an excellent opportunity to showcase to our commercial leaders the company’s largest resort in the world and newest property, Resorts World Las Vegas, which officially opened in June.
This month, the first core planning team meeting was held to review roles and responsibilities of the committee. We walked away from the meeting with a high-level outline of action items and next steps.
Well, it’s official! Leadership approved the conference, in addition to several others taking place over the next two years. We have a lot of planning to get started on!
This month, we received approval to hire two event managers and a coordinator. We are so excited to expand our team!
Good news travels fast! Since that first meeting when conferences were discussed, we’ve had multiple requests for meetings from various other teams and leaders throughout the organization.
