Our The Soaltee Kathmandu Meetings Director will conduct a daily debrief with you to ensure your meeting is on track, help you with any last minute changes and keep you abreast of charges so you can stay within budget.

Designed to help you have a successful start

The tips and checklists outlined here in our Concise Guide to Meeting Mastery will help you pull together a successful event. We’ve broken it all down into five sections: creating the framework, figuring out your general needs, selecting a location, getting a handle on your budget and organizing yourself with detailed notes in preparation for your meeting.

Create the meeting framework

The first thing you need to determine is the purpose and scope of the event. What is to be accomplished? Setting clear objectives is the foundation of a successful event. It helps you figure out what elements are essential. There are five basic questions to ask yourself, the Five Ws of meeting planning. They will form the framework on which to build your meeting or event:

  • Why are we meeting?—Define the objective, reason or purpose for having the meeting or event. Is it training, announcing or showcasing products, or increasing association membership? Purpose helps you determine need and set objectives.
  • What will the meeting entail?—Determine the scope of the meeting (is it international, national, regional, state or local?) and based on the event’s purpose, define the most appropriate type or format (seminar, tradeshow, annual company or association gathering or board meeting).
  • Who will be there?—Determine who will be attending the meeting or event (employees, executives, customers, industry executives, guest speakers, spouses or children). Ensure your guest speakers are relevant to your objectives and be sure your agenda is concise and applicable.
  • Where should the meeting be?—Decide what type of location is most suitable for your event (resort, downtown city center, suburban, airport, conference center). Convenience to participants is generally a prime concern, but so is comfort. Attendees’ travel to and from the event site should be as easy and as inexpensive as possible.
  • When should the meeting take place?—If possible, be flexible regarding the dates for the event. This can improve the chances of obtaining first-choice hotel arrangements within your budget. Consider the time constraints of the participants. Arrange dates to minimize attendees’ time away from office and home.

Determine your requirements

One of the best ways to figure out your requirements is to develop a preliminary schedule. The schedule should be a general outline of what will happen and approximately when. The following list of considerations will help you think through these things.

  • What part of the country or world is best for the event? Consider location of attendees, time zone and climate.
  • How will the majority of attendees get to the hotel? Will they be driving? Flying?
  • When will attendees arrive? For example, will participants get to the hotel the morning of the event or the night before?
  • How many times will you need to feed attendees? Will all meals be planned or will some meals be “on their own”?
  • Do you need to include any recreational activities such as sightseeing or sports outings?
  • Approximately when will attendees leave? After lunch? Late afternoon? Evening? This affects check-out time, food service, travel arrangements and so forth.

Timing and logistics of the agenda are important parts of the preliminary schedule. Some primary considerations include:

Lastly, get a firm budget to work with. You can’t make any decisions unless you know what kind of costs you can bear. Ask the meeting initiator to give you a number. The larger the event, certainly, the greater the relative costs. But other factors can drive expenses, such as attendees’ needs. Will you have clients to entertain? Will you need to provide gifts and extra amenities to certain guests?

  • How many morning, afternoon and evening sessions will take place? Will more than one session be held at one time? Approximately how many people will attend each session?
  • What meeting space and seating arrangements will be required for each session? Will you need a classroom arrangement? Theater? U-shape?
  • Will audiovisual equipment be needed?

Select your location

For a successful meeting, the importance of selecting the right location can’t be overstated. With an understanding of the meeting’s requirements and budget, you can look for a hotel destination that meets your needs.

  • What part of the country or world is best for the event? Consider location of attendees, time zone and climate.
  • How will the majority of attendees get to the hotel? Will they be driving? Flying?
  • When will attendees arrive? For example, will participants get to the hotel the morning of the event or the night before?
  • How many times will you need to feed attendees? Will all meals be planned or will some meals be “on their own”?
  • Do you need to include any recreational activities such as sightseeing or sports outings?
  • Approximately when will attendees leave? After lunch? Late afternoon? Evening? This affects check-out time, food service, travel arrangements and so forth.

Facilities and services to consider when selecting a hotel destination

For a successful meeting, the importance of selecting the right location can’t be overstated. With an understanding of the meeting’s requirements and budget, you can look for a hotel destination that meets your needs.

  • Location. Do you want to be close to your offices? Close to another site (client, corporate facility, airport)? Or would a trip to a resort work better?
  • If attendees are required to stay at the meeting hotel, be sure to assess the number of sleeping rooms required, including single and double rooms and suites (single and double refer to the number of people in each room). Also keep in mind the number of beds required for each sleeping room. Remember, sleeping rooms may not be required for attendees living near the hotel.
  • Estimate the number and sizes of function rooms required for meetings, coffee breaks, exhibitions and meals.
  • Find out the number and types of restaurants within your possible hotel venues, along with available food and beverage services.
  • Determine if golf, tennis or other recreational facilities are available at the hotel, or if guest privileges are available at nearby facilities

Clarify the budget

In addition to a daily debrief with your dedicated The Soaltee Kathmandu Meetings Director to help you manage your budget, here’s a helpful budget calculator to ensure your event and budget remain on track. As you make preliminary inquiries, you will quickly see whether the arrangements you have in mind are feasible for your budget. Complete this form or make copies for each day of your meeting. Then add up the daily costs to determine the total estimated cost of your event.

Timeline

Your success matters to us, and we’ve found using the timeline below is a helpful tool in creating your event. These are general guidelines to keep in mind concerning what needs to be done and when.
