Rules and red tape bog down government meetings
from Meetings Focus
The meetings business is booming, but government functions can't keep up. Government event numbers are down, as are attendee numbers and budgets. The latest MPI survey found that half its members believe government meetings have seen the greatest decrease of any sector compared to a year ago. "We believe the industry is not going to get any worse," says Rob Bergeron, SGMP's executive director and CEO. "But we are still negatively affected by travel restrictions and event restrictions."
