We hope you’ll think of us as your new best friends.
Plan Your Meetings was founded in 1995 to serve and educate the non-titled corporate meeting planner — the person who was hired at an entry-level admin position and then tasked with planning sales incentives, training seminars, holiday parties and conferences in addition to everything else they did. We know that you probably don’t realize this, but you’re not alone. The majority of the meetings planned in the corporate world are being done by people like you. We’ll help you find them and share your own story in the process.
Our stories are written by meeting practitioners so you can learn about what really happens on the job, in the field and behind-the-scenes at events. Just entering the industry? Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered with advice, how-to guides and best practices information shared by your peers. Plus, we can connect you with the hotels, destinations, venues or services you need to make your meeting shine. At our regional PYM LIVE Events, you’ll get the chance to experience future trends and technology as you learn about what’s new and next.
Our goal is to unite the industry
Plan Your Meetings is a branch of the largest and most prestigious association for meeting professionals in the world — Meeting Professionals International. So when you’re ready to commit to being in this industry and taking the next step, we can help you find a community of like-minded individuals, local networking events and the education you need to advance in your career. For just $25/month you can join MPI at a level that gives you access to unlimited on-demand education. Interested? Learn more.
PYM @ MPI creates dialogue between those just starting out and people who’ve helped shape this industry. We encourage planners and suppliers to connect in real, relevant ways and look at each others as partners rather than commodities. Everything we do is designed to educate, empower and inspire you.
