About Our Meeting Professional Magazine
The Bright Business Media mission is to provide the tools meeting professionals need to make their job easier. Our meeting publication is designed to be useful, easy to read, educational and fun. We provide an expert industry perspective and give meeting planners the information they need to be more effective.
Each month, Smart Meetings magazine is published to set the standard for the meetings industry. Our articles feature the latest in industry trends, corporate event planning, emerging technology, personality profiles, and updates on the best venues and destinations throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Smart Meetingsis committed to providing meeting professionals useful information in an easy-to-access, attractive and engaging format.
We also host Smart Events across the country, which have become so popular that we now put on 12 a year. Our one-day Smart Mart and three-day Smart Meeting both gather meeting professionals and suppliers in a casual, intimate atmosphere where attendees are given numerous opportunities to network, learn and meet in a one-on-one setting.
Both the magazine and the events are created by Bright Business Media, founded by Marin Bright, a meetings industry leader with more than 20 years experience. Using her vast publishing experience and extensive first-hand insight, Smart Meetings was created to be the ultimate resource, providing meeting professionals—not only with what they want in a magazine—but also with what they truly need to perform more efficiently.
