Jack Sammis Comments on New Meetings Industry Study
Thursday, February 17 2011In response to today's release of the study, "The Economic Significance of Meetings to the U.S. Economy," Jack Sammis, President & CEO of IMN Solutions, offers the following comment:
"Meetings are integral to the educational and business missions of associations, and they drive real economic benefits to both the public and private sectors. Thanks to this study, "The Economic Significance of Meetings to the U.S. Economy," we now have the tools to demonstrate their full impact.
"At IMN Solutions, we see the positive force that meetings provide every day through our client events – the benefits they provide in fostering new business ideas and relationships are just as important to our future as the economic impact. Both sides are important, and we need to communicate that to policymakers, the business community, and the public at every opportunity.
"The study also found that 23 percent of direct meeting expenditures in the United States go to accommodations and food and beverage – services primarily provided by hotels and meeting venues. IMN Solutions specializes in helping associations maximize their value in these areas. We provide a business strategy that supports client meetings and encourages long-term bookings and meeting commitments that also support the hospitality community."
