When executed safely, in-person meetings and events are possible. But it’s been tough for meeting planners across the nation, due to differing state-by-state and even county-by-county guidelines. In some areas, meetings and events have returned a while ago, but for others, it’s hard to imagine what planning a meeting would be like. In an effort to show the latter how to hold safe, business gatherings when restrictions loosen, the Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) launched their Meet Safe platform as a resource for other planners to reference when planning future in-person meetings.

“You can read about something, but having a visual medium in which you see it is much more impactful,” says Nan Marchand Beauvois, a senior vice president at the U.S. Travel Association, who manages MMBC.   

The platform provides planners a place to upload details such as attendance numbers, how they followed specific safety protocols and guidelines, photos and videos of the event, and even contact information so other planners can reach out to them directly for advice.

While the platform serves as an example for meeting planners, venues, vendors and more, Marchand also hopes that Meet Safe will help show elected officials that meetings and events can indeed be held safely–and in result, restrictions will be loosened on all levels across the country. MMBC wants to fill Meet Safe with examples of events both big and small, so that the platform aids professionals planning gatherings of all sizes. When it comes to boosting the meetings and events industry during the pandemic era, sharing your event details on Meet Safe is caring. 

At Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, meetings are more than just meetings. Yes, it’s an exceptional place to talk serious business. But it's what you can enjoy after your agenda is complete that sets this place apart. No matter the season, there are plenty of great ways to spend your quality time at Crystal Mountain.

Meeting in an idyllic, natural setting doesn’t mean you have to give up a dynamic urban energy –at least not when you’re gathering in The Woodlands, a charming community located less than 30 miles from Houston and George Bush Intercontinental Airport. The town boasts a full social calendar, as well as all of the conveniences found in a more metropolitan locale. But it is shaded by acres of heritage trees, surrounded by neighborhood parks and centered around the sparkling waters of Lake Woodlands and The Woodlands Waterway.
