Global Meetings

Global Meetings 101

Here are five simple tips to pave the way to hosting global meetings.

1. Cultural differences can occur over much shorter distances in regions outside of the United States.

2. Stay calm in the face of the unexpected; trust in your team and be transparent to customers.

3. Be open to cultural differences, even those coming into your home territory.

4. Conduct research before delving into a foreign meeting environment, to better understand local customs.

5. Talk with local events experts or those who have managed meetings where you’re going.
