Why not come to the M Resort for your meeting?

What is my job as Executive Director of Sales for the M Resort? Part of it is to ask meeting planners around the country the above question - why not come to the M Resort for your meeting?

Through my discussions and travels to the numerous meeting tradeshows and conventions throughout the year I receive many answers from planners on why they don't know, don't want to, or can't book their meeting at our resort (of course I also hear the - "I can't wait to have my meeting at your resort!" from planners too, but that's too easy to talk about).

When I'm out and about or talking to planners my job is to turn those don't knows, don't want tos, can'ts into solid bookings for the resort. So what do I tell planners about our resort? It depends on their specific needs and what business objectives they are looking to accomplish, but generally, I tell them, at the M Resort we take a different approach to meetings. We don't have millions of square feet of meeting space - we weren't designed to be a massive exposition hotel - but the space we do have is boutique in nature, accommodating the most discriminating of meeting planners. It's boutique because we want you to feel at home.

Don't want to go through the hassle of planning everything? We can help as little or as much as you need. If it's turnkey you want, we'll take care of it.

If you've been to or read about M, then you'll know food and beverage is one of the things we pride ourselves on most. We recently had Season 6 of Bravo's Top Chef take place at our resort! Food and beverage includes catering. Our catering department stands ready to tailor a menu toward your creative tastes or designs or - because we know food and beverage is just one thing on your checklist of things - we also have pre-arranged offerings designed to ease your mind - at least for a little awhile!

If you're looking for something spectacular, there's nothing like poolside in Vegas at a fabulous resort. Love the look and feel of Marinelli's? It's yours. Think Hostile Grape couldn't be more perfect for your private party? Done. Have something even bigger in mind? How about the entire resort to yourself? That's right, if you've got the inclination, we'll make M your group's personal playground.

I hope I get the opportunity to speak to you about why you should book your meeting at the M Resort. Until then, thanks for reading!
