From Both Sides...The Site Visit: Planner and Supplier Perspectives

The site visit is a critical piece of the event planning puzzle, and it’s almost always necessary to ensure that what planners are envisioning can be made a reality and from a supplier view ensures that they can help make that vision come to life. Site visits can be arduous but are a vital part of the process and is the first step in building the planner/supplier partnership that is fundamental to making any event a success.

During this panel presentation planners and suppliers will speak about their unique perspectives to the site visits. Planners will talk about what they want of the site visits and suppliers will talk about what their expectations are. All parties will address the benefits and pitfalls of site visits.
