  • 1. WHAT IS LUXURY MEETINGS SHOWCASE?
    • The Luxury Meetings Showcase is the ideal chance for qualified meeting planners to learn about and meet with various luxury hotels and destinations, while exchanging ideas and information with other meeting planners. During the Luxury Meetings Showcase you will participate in 2 hours of face-to-face meetings that are 5-minutes in duration, meeting with up to 30 different luxury properties/destinations. Following the meetings, a gourmet plated luncheon will be hosted, along with a raffle for meeting planners to have the opportunity to win fabulous hotel/destination prizes. Ultimately you will walk away with new ideas and relationships that will lead to better business and better meetings.

  • 2. HOW DO I QUALIFY TO ATTEND AS A PLANNER?
    • To qualify to attend the Luxury Meetings Showcase you must be able to demonstrate a booking history and future desire of bringing group meeting business to the attending luxury hotels and destinations. Complete the online registration form for the city you wish to attend, and we will respond to you within 48 hours on the status of your registration.

      If you are a Corporate, Independent, or Association meeting planners with a verifiable history of booking meetings or a decision maker with a group yielding a minimum of 80 total room nights you should have no problem being approved.

  • 3. HOW DO I QUALIFY TO ATTEND AS A HOTELIER?
    • Your property/destination should be 4 or 5 Diamond (or equivalent) and actively target business from each respective showcase location. Please call (805) 243-3983 for more information.

  • 4. CAN I BRING A SPOUSE OR GUEST?
    • Unfortunately, this is a business luncheon. No guests are invited to attend. However if your guest is a client or a meeting planner, please have them register online. We will then review their qualifications.

  • 5. WHAT IS THE ATTIRE?
    • Business Attire.

  • 6. CAN I BRING MY CLIENT?
    • Absolutely! Please have your client register online. We will then review their qualifications.

  • 7. WHAT HOTELS ARE PARTICIPATING?
    • Under “Attending Suppliers” within each individual event section, we have a partial list of suppliers that will be in attendance. For the most up-to-date list of attending suppliers please call (805) 243-3983.

  • 8. SHOULD PLANNERS BRING RFPS?
    • YES! We encourage all planners to bring any active RFPs which you are currently sourcing. After all that is the purpose of this event.

  • 9. CAN MORE THAN ONE MEETING PLANNER FROM A COMPANY ATTEND?
    • We have a policy that typically allows only one meeting planner to attend per company. However, exceptions can be made if there is verifiable information that two planners work at the same company but in different departments with separate programs and clients.

  • 10. ARE PLANNERS REQUIRED TO ATTEND ALL THE FUNCTIONS?
    • Yes. Attendance for the duration of the program, including the entire Speed Meeting sessions and luncheon, is mandatory for both meeting planners and suppliers.

  • 11. CAN I ATTEND JUST THE LUNCHEON?
    • Unfortunately, that would defeat the purpose of the entire event. If you are unable to make the duration of the event (Minimum 9:45am – 1:00pm) we politely ask that you wait to register for an event where you can attend the whole time. Whereas space is limited to only 75 planners, we don’t want someone else to miss out on this invaluable business networking opportunity.

  • 12. WHAT IF I HAVE ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?
    • If you have additional questions please do not hesitate to call Jacob Ahrens at (805) 243-3983 or contact Jacob via email at [email protected].
