Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Meetings Collaborative, a new social networking tool for meeting professionals that connects industry peers from all over world for insight and answers through the discussion forum as well as hotel reviews, launched this month with the promise of collective problem solving at users' fingertips.
With Meetings Collaborative, meeting professionals can make every venue choice an informed one with peer reviews of hotels and resorts worldwide all generated by planners who have held meetings or events at a particular location. The mission of Meetings Collaborative is to take the risk out of booking with an unknown property by tapping the knowledge bank of professionals who've already viewed the hotel and destination firsthand. The site will become most valuable if all users posts questions and reviews.
Meetings Collaborative was founded by Chris White, Chairman and CEO of Global Events Partners and Krisam Group, and technology expert John Iwaniec who recognized a need for a collaborative effort of experienced meeting professionals online.
"Meeting professionals needed an online social networking community to make their jobs easier," said White. "Meetings Collaborative is truly a collaborative effort and in order for it to succeed, meeting professionals will need to interact with each other regularly by posting questions and making informed decisions."
The Meetings Collaborative site also features a blog from industry icon Joan Eisenstodt. She has over 30 years experience in every facet of event planning and is regularly recognized as one of the most influential people in the meetings industry.
Meetings Collaborative is free to join and only requires the user to complete a simple registration.
