Tips for More Productive Meetings
- Send the agenda well in advance. Give attendees a chance to prepare for the meeting by reviewing agenda items in advance. Send the agenda with key points of discussion ahead of time so participants can prepare questions and take notes. This will help move the meeting along and keep everyone as productive as possible.
- Schedule regular breaks. Your attendees will be able to stay focused and productive when they have a chance to break away during longer sessions. Longer breaks will also give attendees a chance to explore the city sites.
- Choose a venue near the airport. Make it easy for guests to travel to and from Washington, DC, for your meeting so they can spend less time traveling and more time focused on the meeting and agenda. Choose a venue that's within a short drive of the airport and within easy reach of downtown attractions.
