Cracking the Code of the Future Room Block
September 12 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Thursday, September 12, 2019
5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
By now we realize, a silver bullet doesn’t exist to address the many factors contributing to the erosion of the room block. Instead, what we need moving forward is a multitude of strategies. Join us for a discussion on how events strategists will address the shift in the room block climate and how they will rethink everything from their goals, their metrics and whether they’ll need a room block at all.
- Discover new industry resources you could use to educate your stakeholders about the difference between your room demand and contracted room block
- Assess the current state of your organization’s room block practices
- Identify specific practices other event organizers are having success deploying
