StarCite Publishes Strategic Meetings Management Handbook

The first guidebook for developing strategic meetings management programmes will hit shelves this August with the publication of Strategic Meetings Management Handbook: From Theory to Practice, published by Easton Studio Press and compiled by StarCite.
