Meetings, Expositions, Events, and Conventions (MEEC) is one of the fastest growing segments of the United States economy, and embraces multiple aspects of the hospitality and tourism industry. Communities are increasingly trying to attract conventions and special events, and are spending huge sums of money to build convention centers, stadiums, and arenas. No city is considered "world class" without them. Thus, there is a tremendous need for this book. A panel of industry experts determined the topics covered in this book, such as venues, sponsors, organizers, exhibitions, special events, food R beverage, program planning, convention and visitor bureaus, legal issues, technology, and international issues. This book provides a thorough understanding of the MEEC industry. As such, it is a "must read" for anyone thinking of becoming involved in MEEC, or even those with a passing interest in the subject.About the Author:
