Event Details




Terry Matthews-Lombardo, CMP

This month’s coffee talk will be an open discussion about those ‘illusive’ independent planners – who are they, what do they do, and how on earth can we start the dialogue with them? 

This session will benefit both suppliers who are curious or confused about the role that independent planners serve, and planners who are considering their own options for going into the world of independent planning.

This session will be led by one of Orlando’s original planners, Terry Matthews-Lombardo, CMP. Terry is a veteran meeting planner who opened her doors as an independent ‘many years ago’ and has maintained a steady client base through the ups, downs, highs and lows of this challenging industry.

She’s happy to share her wealth of knowledge with anyone who attends this session.  In addition to being a successful senior planner and active trip director, Terry was among the first in Florida to become a Certified Meeting Planner [in 1987].  

She is also proud to be a Founding Member and two-term Past President of the MPI Greater Orlando chapter and currently maintains an active blog via the Orlando Sentinel called the Hospitality Hive covering a wide range of industry specific topics.
