Successful Execution of Hybrid Pharmaceutical Regional Sales Meetings

April 2, 2024

Our pharmaceutical client engaged us in 2023 to orchestrate their hybrid 1.5-day regional sales meetings slated for January 2024. The objectives of these meetings were clear: to revisit the company's mission and vision, reflect on the successes and challenges of the previous year, and chart a course for the future, all while accommodating the diverse needs of their seven regional sales groups. This ambitious undertaking required meticulous planning, attention to detail, and seamless execution – all of which were central to our approach at Meeting Logistics.

From the outset, our team was focused on delivering excellence at every stage of the process. We began by conducting extensive research to identify suitable cities for each regional meeting, taking into account logistical considerations and client-specific financial parameters. Our expertise in meeting logistics proved invaluable as we sifted through venue proposals, ensuring that each option met the client's criteria.

Once the client made their venue selections, our team swung into action, negotiating seven different venue contracts to secure the best rates, concessions, and terms for our client.

As the meetings approached, the complexity only grew, given the hybrid nature of the events. Balancing in-person attendance with remote presentations required meticulous scheduling, managing each agenda design to accommodate across different time zones.

The in-person component facilitated valuable face-to-face interactions, allowing colleagues to forge connections, build bonds, and strengthen team spirit – the remote portion, enabled corporate executives to present multiple sessions to seven regions.

Our suite of services encompassed every aspect of meeting management, from initial planning to final reconciliation:

•            Overall Meeting Management: From inception to completion, we oversaw every detail, ensuring a seamless experience for our client and attendees.

•            Precise Communication: We maintained open lines of communication with both the client and attendees, providing timely updates and guidance throughout the process.

•            Attendee Management: From invitations to registration, we handled all attendee data with precision and care.

•            Budget Management: We developed accurate budget estimates, tracked all costs, and adhered to financial parameters to ensure cost-effectiveness.

•            Contract Management: Negotiating contracts with venues, securing the best rates, concessions, and terms for our client.

•            Hotel Accommodations: We managed all aspects of hotel rooming list submissions and function space management for best use of meeting space and to enjoy the uniqueness of each individual contracted hotel venue.

•            Event Logistics: Coordinating banquets, catering, room setups, and audiovisual and technology to create a memorable experience for all participants.

•            Virtual Meeting Management: Leveraging technology to seamlessly integrate remote presenters and attendees into the events.

•            Off-Site Coordination: Managing reservations, guarantees, and payments for off-site dining and events to enhance the overall experience.
