This study examines the process associated with implementing a major international meeting/exposition from the corporate perspective. Using the 1992 Summer Olympics as a backdrop for a client V.I. P. program by a major U.S. Optical Corporation, this project tracks the planning, development and implementation of a meeting planning incentive program. Topics examined include: site-selection, budget, ticketing for events, on-site transportation, food & beverage, daily agenda, premiums, international documentation and security. The study provides a comprehensive overview of planning major meetings.
