Plan Ahead Events, an active member of the International Franchise Association (IFA), chose the IFA’s 2011 Annual Convention as the platform to launch its National Accounts Program.
Plan Ahead Events had a successful presence at the convention, and according to Plan Ahead Events’ Tipton Shonkwiler, vice president and brand director, the economic outlook is upbeat and positive, since all indications for 2011 point to a great year. The Plan Ahead Events message was perfect for many of the 2800 IFA attendees, especially those who have had the experience of running their conventions in-house and who realize the demands on their staff to carry out the planning process. The franchisors understand that planning meetings and events is a task best handled by professionals and that the services Plan Ahead Events offers are a perfect fit for those looking to gain a better ROI on their conventions and meetings and to spend more time with their franchisees at these events.

It provides full-service management and planning for meetings, conventions, trade shows, special events and incentive travel.
