Meetings Management Magazine
Meetings International is your first meetings management magazine. With articles covering key industry issues, strategic meetings management, (SMM), CSR, procurement and return on investment (ROI), through to supply chain management and benchmarking, we help meeting planners develop strategies, content and events that really make a difference.
»We put the planners who create the future of the worldwide meetings industry in the spotlight – where they belong,« says editor in chief, Atti Soenarso.
By combining the Award winning magazine, the award-winning photography, world-class design and writers that fully understand our industry, our aim is simple: to become the leading magazine in the global meetings industry.
The people behind the magazine
Roger Kellerman has been writing about meetings for more than 25 years. Together with his wife and editor in chief, Atti Soenarso they have worked as journalists for more than 55 years. For the past six years they have presented The Scandinavian Meeting Planner of the Year Award, in addition to this they have been working closely with leading Scandinavian industry exhibition TUR in Göteborg (www.tur.se) to create Meeting Industry Week, which gives the exhibition the Association Meetings Day and the Corporate Meetings Day, with high profile speakers such as Paul Bridle, Greta Kotler, Johan Johansson, dr Elling Håmsö, dr Laith Bunni, dr Tom McDonald, Paul Flackett, Patrick Delaney, Guy Bigwood, JP Bergkvist, to mention but a few.
The concept Meetings International
For more than 25 years we have been working with the leading meetings industry association Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and the two leading global exhibitions IMEX and EIBTM, this has given us a strong international perspective on the industry and we now want to share our experience and knowledge with a global audience. Since more than 10 years we are proud members of SITE. From 2010 we have also joined the ICCA Family. Our global magazine will during 2011 become a Quarterly magazine and the four issues will be launched at EMEC in Dusseldorf, IMEX in Frankfurt, the ICCA Congress in Leipzig and at EIBTM in Barcelona.

Comments about Meetings International
”Grabbed a copy during EIBTM of your new magazine and I read it all the way through the last evening in Barcelona! GREAT! Absolutely interesting and a completely different approach – the marks are already high, a challenge for you to continue, but I am sure you will make it. CONGRATULATIONS!”
CEO, Vienna Convention Bureau
”What a fantastic new version of the magazine! At last we can read this innovative publication in English and appreciate fully the editorial excellence of Atti Soenarso. Congratulations!”
Commercial Director, Visit London
”I receive a lot of meetings industry journals but read only one from cover to cover every time. Meetings International is completely different from all the others, every issue is filled with meeting management best practice examples rather than destination reports and industry gossip. This is the magasine you read to develop yourself as a meeting management professional”.
Dr. Elling Hamso
European ROI Institute
”As you can imagine, I read a lot of publications about our industry, but I can honestly say that yours is the most stimulating and thought-provoking magazine I have ever seen, in this field. How on earth did you manage to find such a group of serious thinkers, all with really original things to say about meetings? And – more importantly – how will you find others, for subsequent editions? Seriously, congratulations on an excellent magazine – which my students of Conference & Events Management will also find extremely useful, for their own research. I am very much looking forward to future editions.”
