Gerardo Tejado, general manager at American Express Meetings & Events says “meetings and events have cemented their place as a critical driver of communications, growth and engagement for organizations of all shapes and sizes.”  Among the findings of this year’s report: meeting planners are wearing two hats, that of logistics expert and an experiential designer, making sure the experience is more personalized, before, during and after an event.
