Consolidated Meetings Save Time & Money - With American Cancer Society

One of the greatest challenges in the meetings & events industry is tracking and managing corporate spend in travel and entertainment — and costs associated with those areas are only rising.

Before Lanyon, the American Cancer Society was manually managing all of its meetings and transient travel spend in Excel spreadsheets. By consolidating their meetings, events & travel programs under the Lanyon Smart Events Cloud® they increased productivity, streamlined processes and saved time and money.

American Cancer Society has also controlled meetings spend by implementing a virtual meetings program – utilizing Lanyon Meetings for registration and budgeting along with live streaming technology – resulting in “literally millions and millions of dollars” in savings.

We sit down with American Cancer Society’s Terri Clay and Melanie Pensinger for a lively discussion about the joys and challenges of managing meetings for one of the United States’ oldest and most respected charity organizations.


You will learn:

  • How ACS simplified their “accounting nightmare” by consolidating their meetings program

  • How ACS uses Lanyon Meetings and live streaming technology to control meetings spend through virtual meetings.

  • How mobile meetings apps save ACS time and money at their biggest meetings and events
