At meetingpages, we LOVE technology. It seems like almost everyday, there’s some way it makes our site more expansive and easy to use, which in turn, makes you more efficient, effective and successful at your job. For example, technology has allowed mp to expand the ways you learn about suppliers through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more. It’s enabled us to expand search criteria with Facility Search, making it even easier for you to pinpoint your venue. It’s allowed suppliers to share the names of related suppliers in search results, plus it’s streamlined the RFP process, so you need only search, select and send to submit an RFP to one or all 5,000 of our suppliers simultaneously. So, you could say these improvements have made our readers all tech-knowledge-y. Not to mention, really, really happy. START HERE >
