IACC has launched its Guide to Conference & Meetings Internet, which is aimed at supporting those new to meeting and events management or who arrange conferences, meetings and training events for under 300 attendees.
The guide enables anyone organising a business event or meeting to successfully perform the often technically overwhelming task of arranging and buying internet and broadband services from a venue.
Mark Cooper, CEO of IACC, comments: “As the industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, we’re seeing a greater number of internet reliant technologies enter the meetings and conference world. In order to support those tasked with organising smaller business events, we felt there was a need to provide some entry-level guidance on meetings internet.”
The guide is also a reference and educational tool for venue sales and planning team members, ensuring they have the knowledge required to match internet related services to the needs of their clients.
Cooper, adds: “The guide helps to break down the barriers faced by many in the industry; it includes a helpful and comprehensive summary section on basic terminology, which equips everyone with the day-to-day jargon associated with meetings internet, so it’s ideally suited for both event organisers and venues.”
The guide was designed by IACC volunteers in Australia, Europe and America; with the project led by Clotilde Gay, director of sales for Dolce Hotels and Resorts, an IACC certified venue.
