Meetings Focus publishes a monthly magazine (and runs a frequently updated website) dedicated to the success of today's meeting planners and those that serve them. While we pride ourselves on being true experts on the top meeting destinations and venues in North America and beyond, we also provide our readers and site visitors with a wealth of resources that help make their jobs, and lives, easier.
In addition to our monthly print and digital editions of Meetings Focus - with destination coverage custom-tailored to the regions our subscribers plan in - we also keep our website (www.meetingsfocus.com) updated with industry news, blogs and other useful content. In addition, the site contains a backlog of informative articles, plus detailed overviews of destinations and venues.
Meetings Focus also believes strongly in fostering learning within the meetings industry, and to that end we present free webinars, exclusive video broadcasts and our annual Meetings Focus Live hosted buyer events, instilling new skills and insights that help planners optimize their time and resources.
