2022: Year of the Comeback!

Nov 30, 2022

Written by Lesley Brandt, Renee Black

“It’s nice to meet you” is a greeting we often hear as people network at events, and in 2022, it was simply “nice to meet.” This greeting was all about the comeback to more in-person events, travel and overall human connection.

2022 brought planit inc. rapid growth with clients new and old, expanding our team, and incredible opportunities as we returned to in-person events and planned large-scale meetings. 2022 also marked the fastest event growth the business has seen since the pandemic began.

Two major factors of our comeback success story are our advanced technology integrations and our health and well-being initiative for events, meet well. meet safe. This program was implemented after we hit the reset button in 2020.

We saw unprecedented technology adoption occur in mere months as we worked to navigate holding successful virtual gatherings during the first year of the pandemic. Then, after a year of primarily hybrid events in 2021, we continued to up the ante with technology as the demand for digital components increased for in-person events in 2022.

planit inc. has steadily innovated its digital event planning platform, attend!t, since we first created it in the early 2000s. Today it helps us execute easy online registration, event websites, attendee data and more—an invaluable toolkit to assist clients in reaching and exceeding goals.

In 2022, planit inc. also grew its versatility through a mixed client portfolio of size, scope and industry. As we partner with our clients to achieve success, one of our core principles has always been our adherence to clients’ budgets and objectives. We are masters of making “WOW” out of the modified event plan or the decreased budget. Additionally, we are mindful of the cultural and political environments at play and understand our part in making an impact with our sustainable, corporate-responsible event plans.

Overall, we have come back stronger than ever in 2022. We are well-positioned for a time of growth that will be more significant than our business has ever experienced. The pandemic was an obstacle to doing business, but it did not deter nor change who we are. Our team thrives in providing an unmatched level of professionalism and customer service to clients and their attendees.

We greet challenges with a smile because we’re in it together. As 2022 ends and we look to the horizon of the possibilities 2023 will bring, we think of how proud we are of our passionate, dedicated planit inc. team, who continue to stand at the ready to innovate our industry that was all but destroyed by a global pandemic. There is no ceiling to our future as we continue to WOW clients and raise the bar.

Contact us today to get in touch with our team to assist you with your upcoming event, conference or meeting. We are eager to support you in achieving your future engagement goals.
