Appointment scheduling system to make life easier for hosted buyers

A technological solution that makes it easier and more effective for hosted buyers to plan their time at trade shows and conferences is being implemented at the 2009 Motivation Show in Chicago in September and considered for Meetings Professional International’s (MPI’s) Meet Different event in Cancun in February 2010.

Elite Meetings International’s (EMI’s) FaceTime appointment scheduling technology has been selected by the Motivation Show to facilitate connections, appointments and scheduling between top professionals participating in its hosted buyer programme.

“We are delighted that the organisers of these two important annual meeting industry events see the value of FaceTime as a vehicle for helping attendees identify synergies, manage appointments and make direct connections with one another,” said EMI chief executive Kelly Foy.

“We look forward to demonstrating the product’s unique features and benefits to meeting and hospitality professionals in the months leading up to the Motivation Show (ITME), and hopefully, showcasing it at both of these high-traffic events.”

FaceTime helps planners and suppliers request, create and manage appointments. Features include:
– Simple and instantaneous appointment scheduling.
– Detailed user information, allowing potential business to be identified easily.
– Smart scheduling via cross-referencing multiple appointment schedules and suggesting available slots.
– Advanced communications functions through real-time appointment request system and streamlined responses.
– Easily accessible display and printing of comprehensive event schedule with appointments.
– An appointment alert system that notifies participants of additions, changes, cancellations and messages from other event participants.

“We are thrilled to partner with EMI to introduce FaceTime through our hosted buyer programme at our 2009 trade show,” said Pete Erickson, managing director of Hall-Erickson, which produces the Motivation Show.

“For the high-level participants in our hosted buyer programmme, there are no more important skills than time management, organisation and connecting with the right people at the right time – FaceTime makes that process easier and more effective than ever before.”
