meeting and event planning training

Site Search



As Meeting and Event Planners, we use a lot of products and services, and we want to let you know about them.  Some items you can get for free others may be services you need to use.  All have been used by either Cathy and Mary, and made our planning lives so much easier!

Registration Services


Cathy has been using Regonline for over three years now, and just loves the system.  It is so easy to use and very affordable.  Regonline has a per registration fee structure, so it is very easy to budget the fee associated with this meeting planning task.  Click on their logo for more info and to take a tour of the system.

 Convention and Visitor Bureaus (CVB)

Cathy and Mary almost always use the services of a CVB to help with rfp and site selection for our meetings and events. We even teach a section on why you should use a CVB in our Meeting Planning Boot Camp™ class. CVBs are experts on their city's resources and eager to help meeting planners. To find a CVB, you can do a Google search or visit

We would like to give shout out to the CVBs that have provided us with excellent service and sponsorship support.
