Meeting planners and event Professionals make quick decisions on event space, as well as want direct communication with properties as it relates to room setup and event diagrams. Venues need to showcase their property in a professional, and engaging format in order to make it on to a short list for a planner. With iPlan, venues are able to showcase their meeting space in an informative, and interactive way, allowing planners and venues to create and manage room diagrams online. Through built in collaboration tools, iPlan allows a social, conversational method of communication between a potential meeting planner, and a venue. This decreases the communication gap between initial research and event execution especially as it relates to setup diagrams.
Building off of the rich historical expertise of Newmarket MeetingMatrix and Newmarket MeetingMatrix Silver, iPlan is a single web based solution utilizing a consistent user experience for diagramming to aide in the communication process between the planner and the venue.
“With drag and drop functionality and our quick Seating Wizard tools, planners form a bond with a venue right from the beginning of the sales process,” said Jeff Hiscox, president and CEO of Newmarket. “Meeting Planners that have used this tool with lighthouse customers begin to expect this level of professionalism and interactivity from properties.”

The need for hotels, event venues, restaurants and entertainment complexes to showcase and market their space is critical in winning business. Adding industry best practices for operational diagrams along with an interactive collaboration environment, iPlan allows venues to stand out from their competition. iPlan enables the use of space visualization throughout the meeting planning lifecycle, giving access to planners and venues from anywhere they have an internet connection.
