RFPs & Sourcing

We’ve gathered an exceptional panel of experts for a “conversation-style” meeting to discuss RFPs and Sourcing – the bane of all our jobs. 

·         Annette Belding, Minneapolis Northwest CVB

·         Jasmine Eldeen, HelmsBriscoe

·         Sue Hochstein, Buffalo Wild Wings

·         Amy Marie Lemanski, AML Events

·         BethAnn Wiberg, Hyatt Regency Bloomington-Minneapolis

“What can planners do to make it easier for RFP recipients to respond?”

“What can planners do to receive a response that addresses the specifics we’ve outlined in the RFP?”

 “What is the average lead time needed for suppliers to respond to a Request for Proposal?”

“Does the CVB attach my original RFP when they send the lead to their member properties?”

“How can we best work with a sourcing company such as HelmsBriscoe?”

“How do planners track replies?”

“As a planner, what is your go-to system to find the perfect property?”

Hosted Happy Hour
After our meeting, we will adjourn to the private room in the hotel’s Urbana Craeft Kitchen Restaurant to celebrate Global Meetings Industry Day with appetizers and cocktails.

Bring your list of questions and discussion items.  We look forward to seeing you at our panel conversation.


If you are attending the MPI Chapter event, please join us immediately after.
