WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY (February 3, 2004) -- EMCVenues

Jody Wallace, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for EMCVenues has announced the formation of its Advisory Council. The Council was formed to support the EMCVenues commitment to Customer Delight and to continue to review the EMCVenues Brand Concept and Brand Standards on a regular basis.

The first meeting of the Advisory Council was held in conjunction with the first EMCVenues Customer Speak-out held in Orlando, Florida in October where a group of industry meeting planners and training professionals gathered to discuss their experiences and opinions on the conference center industry and to help drive the industry into the next century. Additional regional customer Speak-outs are schedule in New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, San Francisco, and Atlanta in 2004. The next Speak-out is scheduled in July at Pacific Palms Resort in Industry Hills, CA, just outside Los Angeles.

The Advisory Council is comprised of selected industry professionals throughout the United States and Canada who offer their experience and keen awareness of industry trends and market demands in the conference center industry. The group is made up of active members of the Independent Association of Conferences & Conventions (IACC) in various management positions at conference centers and conference center management companies.

The Council is committed to ongoing education of the conference center concept to the meeting planning arena and to a constant evaluation of the EMCVenues concept and standards. As a group, they will seek innovative ways to save the client valuable time and money throughout the meeting planning process as well as evaluating ways to increase the value of the EMCVenues Complete Meeting Package (CMP). The EMCVenues CMP currently includes value-added signature items that guarantee a more simplified planning and billing process.
