ABSTRACT
The article discusses the views of different executives about the meetings industry during the 2008 Motivation Show. Beth Cooper-Zobott of Equity Residential noted that executives do not take action because they could not predict economic conditions. Scott Graf of BCD Meetings and Incentives explained that rising airfares turn a flat budget into decreased budget. Louann Cashill of Toyota Motor Sales suggested the outsourcing of logistics and creation of a crisis management plan.
