Meetings are a significant investment for your organization. We have the scientific approach to bring them in on time, on budget, exceeding management and attendee expectations.

A conference, incentive, or meeting is an opportunity to inform, entertain, and inspire. In 1992 PlanNet was founded with the objective of complementing the core competencies of organizations with the experience, knowledge, and buying expertise in managing domestic and international meetings and congresses and to maximize their return on investment.

Meetings are traditionally looked on as an administrative task from the perspective of senior management at the “C level” (CEO, CFO, CIO, CMO, etc). A pure expense to the organization. The PlanNet philosophy is that this is just a fraction of the responsibility of a true Meeting Professional. Successfully managing and organizing a meeting must be measured by the attendee networking and relationships developed, the good-will associated with the meeting experience, the inverse relationship of costs as they relate to producing the program, and that we make our client look GREAT. To accomplish this we must sweat the small stuff.

The Project Manager must be integrally involved with the key influencers associated with the program, and understand their goals and objectives. At PlanNet we perpetually evaluate and improve the attendee and client experience. By asking good questions and utilizing our tremendous resources and relationship pool we work with you to develop a program that will result in . Our unique culture embraces and celebrates the talents and perspectives of a variety of ages, interests, beliefs and backgrounds.

Attendees are more selective about the meetings they attend. They expect a smile, personal care, and attention to detail. Your meeting is the vehicle for great strategic thinking to be transformed into actionable and achievable plans that yield desired operating results. The good-will gained through the personal relationships, human interaction, and exchange of views is your primary return on investment and can only be achieved through professional meeting management.

PlanNet is an integral part of the global market of congress organizers
with our specialists we care deeply about the success of all involved! Planning a meeting isn’t rocket science but, the same can be said for creating music, writing poetry, or painting a picture…but if you want a masterpiece, hire the professional at PlanNet.

We will be happy to hear from you, answer your questions, and respond to your needs. In short, Why PlanNet? “Finding and retaining “great clients” is as important as finding and retaining “great people”.

Great Minds, Great Meetings... PlanNet.

We look forward to hearing from you,

The PlanNet Team
