In this follow-up book, Suckow reveals the results of over a year of researching more than 2,000 suppliers. She interviewed hoteliers, convention & visitor bureaus (CVBs), destination management companies (DMCs), transportation providers, technology providers, and more.
Suckow's first book, Planner Pet Peeves, provided a candid, no-holds-barred account of what meetings industry planners really think of supplier behavior, and why planners avoid, hire or recommend some vs. others. This book gives planners insight into how their behavior often causes frustration among their service providers - the very people planners rely on to make their meetings successful.
The book is available on Amazon in print or Kindle editions.
