PRLog - April 2, 2012 - NORTHAMPTON, U.K. -- The results of a survey carried out by Sundial Group have revealed a surprising new trend for 2012. Entitled ‘Future of Meetings’, the survey of 4000 event planners and bookers has suggested that smaller day meetings will enjoy a resurgence this summer, replacing large events spread over a number of days and incorporating hundreds of delegates. Allowing business to be conducted on a much more personal level, the survey respondents indicated that around 75% of their meetings in 2012 would be for 25 delegates or fewer, allowing for a narrower focus and increased flexibility.
Despite the move towards more personalised meetings, 90% of respondents were in agreement that a dedicated venue is still of the utmost importance. Sundial Options and Solutions, the venue finding agency by Sundial Group can help those planning a meeting for summer 2012 to source exactly the right venue. Its dedicated venue finding team offer a completely free service and specialise in placing meetings and events at dedicated venues both in the UK and overseas.
Meeting planners wishing to book a space for a smaller meeting need only advise the UK venue finding team at Sundial of their budget, party size and any preferred geographical area. A selection of options will be provided and coupled with free strategic support such as on-site assistance and accompanied site visits. Contract negotiations, meetings management and pre-event feedback are also included.
