Guest Speaker

We will hear from Mike Dominguez on “Measuring the Business Values of Meetings”.  It provides a perspective on how hotels look at the value of association meetings.  The session will enlighten associations about how hotels view association business and in what areas associations can successfully negotiate.

Mike is Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales for MGM Resorts International.

"This presentation by Mike Dominguez is one of those “must attend” sessions that ever association exec and association meeting planner should hear.  It provides great insight on how hotels evaluate your business.  After hearing this presentation, you will have a better idea of what areas are negotiable and the consequences of getting concessions.  Mike will explain how hotels run the numbers to see if your business is worthwhile to the hotel at what price points.  Hearing this presentation is well-worth your time to attend the upcoming AEA meeting, both professionally and for your association."
