Virtual Lunch and Learn: The RFP of the Future

May 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm1:30 pm EDT

Visitor sentiments in 2019 were already shifting, but the last two years have expedited the process greatly while also simultaneously providing a heightened awareness of the value of the industry. The attendee and event needs have changed and have put both Destination Experts and Business Events Strategists in a place where the “next normal” provides an opportunity for deeper evaluation, deeper partnership and deeper impact. The industry has pushed pause on the copy and paste RFP and officially welcomed the “RFP of the Future”.

Learn what the key factors are for both the destinations and event strategist in the sourcing and selection process, and more importantly how they can work together to maximize ROI for all stakeholders.

Stick around after the presentation for an Unplugged Session from 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm. This open discussion forum will be moderated by Stephen Jackson, Associate Director of Sales for Visit Raleigh.
