This research is a replication of part of Dr. Catherine
Price's dissertation study "An Empirical Study of Professional
Association Meetings from the Perspective of Attendees"
(1993). The paper presented is a research study in the area
of meeting/conference attendee preferences. This research
tested which attributes of meeting selection were of
importance to a particular population. Dr. Price (1993)
identified four variables as important attributes for
attendees in their selection of a meeting. They were: a)
education, b) leadership, c) networking, and d) professional
savvy. The primary hypothesis was directed at confirming the
validity of these attributes. Four factors emerged in the
analysis of this study. Three factors were identical to the
Price (1993) study. These factors were: a) education, b)
leadership, and c) networking. The fourth factor that emerged
was named potpourri. Ultimately, this study attempted to be
significant in assisting meeting planners in the preparation
of more effective meetings.
