West Coast planners who want to take advantage of the free Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association (HSMAI) Affordable Meetings conference, previously held only on the East Coast, will get their chance this April. For the first time, HSMAI is offering Affordable Meetings West, April 1617, at the San Jose (CA) McEnery Convention Center.
