National Meeting Planners Appreciation Day
Monday of the first full week in May
National Meeting Planners Appreciation Day "recognizes the contribution of meeting and convention planners to tourism in their communities." Meeting and convention planners arrange meetings, conventions, and other events. Business conventions, weddings, award ceremonies, charity banquets, and educational conferences are a few types of events they arrange. They organize all aspects of the events such as where they are held, transportation, food, and finances. By their work, meeting and convention planners help bring in tourists and help their communities come to life and shine. This is why they are recognized today!
