In addition to detailed lesson plans, Puerto Rico Smooth Meeting University also provides detailed room layouts, an online RFP form and other helpful tools for planning a group program on the island.
“We saw a clear need for an online professional development resource for the MICE Market and we sought a partner who shared our commitment to training meeting planners through dynamic content offerings and greater flexibility for how and when they educate themselves,” remarked John McMahon, executive vice president, Questex Hospitality+Travel.
