What is Meeting-in-a-Meeting?

(Available to Gold and Silver Level Corporate Members only) Meeting-in-a-Meeting is an opportunity for your team to meet, plan, and strategize in a private meeting room while you attend the 2014 WERC Annual Conference. WERC's professional meeting planners will reserve a conference room for your exclusive use at no cost to your company. This is a popular benefit, so you'll want to contact us early to reserve your space. (Availability is limited.)  

Meeting-in-a-Meeting provides:

Convenience & Reduced Expenses

An opportunity to experience the conference AND take advantage of having your team together in one location.

A clean, comfortable, and professional meeting setting that is set to your specifications. (Water, mints/candies, pens, paper, draped tables, and chairs are included. Additional services available for a fee.) 

Professional Meeting Planner

You tell us when and how you want the room set up and we take care of reserving the room. 

Through the host location, additional services will be available to make your event complete (A/V, catered food and beverage not already included with the conference, etc.)

Access to Industry Professionals

See a conference speaker you would like to meet with your group? Let us know and we will invite that presenter to speak with your group while you attend the conference.


What Corporate Members have to say...

"Each year, our logistics leaders meet face-to-face as part of advancing our global network. The ability to combine our network meeting with the WERC Conference leveraged our thought leadership experience and out time together. WERC handled most of the facility arrangements for us to have a successful on-site network meeting. Our team showed p and had a great Confernce and network meeting, including saving Starbucks' money. I'm certain many large organizations would benefit from WERC's Corporate Membership while combining the Annual Conference and their internal meeting."

Greg Javor, Senior VP
Supply Chain Operations, EMEA Region
Starbucks Coffee Company
