You will learn several marketing tools and techniques, and how to use them to your organization's advantage. You will get practical strategies in creating an event marketing communication action plan before, during, and after your program.   Site Selection & Negotiation Selecting a location is a complicated process involving more than just booking rooms or choosing menus.
