Taking the Leap to Paperless
No more binders full of paper, no more printing banquet event orders, no more copies of production schedules. We did it! Thanks to technology, resourceful team members and a true commitment to reduce our own event planning paper stream, this fall's event documents are now 100% electronic.
Carole Garner, Director of Conference Management, made it her own personal mission to go digital and through her leadership transformed the way we do business. The team learned a lot during the testing phase and incorporated those learnings into a final product. During a pre-con this week, the Grand Hyatt New York Conference Service Manager and staff said we were the first to go through a full week of events without one piece of paper.
In the picture of Carole above, you will also note, we were able to source name badges that don't require plastic name badge holders (Thanks to Shawna McKinley, Director of Sustainability). The lanyard she is wearing will be reused.
If you want any details, please, just ask! Those of you familiar with MeetGreen, know that we openly share our resources and don't believe fellow industry professionals should have to reinvent the wheel.
After all, "One small step for man, one giant leap..."
