Chapter 18. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles > Ground Transportation - Pg. 162

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles 162 In general, when using meet and greet for groups, the attendees pay for the transportation to the hotel. The meet and greet simply helps them locate the ground transportation. You, the meeting host, pay for the meet and greet service. Meeting Speak Meet and greet is commonly used at airports to meet special passengers and either direct them to ground transportation or take them to their final destination. Meet and greet is also frequently used for VIPs, executives, and speakers. Some companies have services where you can request a representative to greet your attendees or VIPs at the airport gate, carry their baggage, escort them to their car, and assist them at hotel check-in. In these cases, you pay the company directly and cover the transportation cost and gratuities. Providers of these services are ground transportation, limousine, and destination-management companies. The cost of these services will depend on the city or location, type of vehicle, and serv- ices required. Meet and greet makes a strong, professional impression. Food for Thought
