Professional Meeting Planners: Successful Meeting Planning


About Professional Meeting Planners (PMP)

Founded in 1989 by Lori Gershaw, Professional Meeting Planners (PMP) was formed as an independent meeting and conference planning company. Gershaw Conference Group, Inc.(GCG), the parent company of Professional Meeting Planners was established in 1998. GCG is a privately held, woman-owned corporation located in Stoneham, Massachusetts. Lori Gershaw, President and Allan Stark, Vice President, are both actively involved in the day-to-day management and operations of both of GCG's enterprises, Professional Meeting Planners and GCG Event Partners.

PMP has managed meetings that range in complexity from board meetings consisting of a few key people to conferences that boast over 1,000 attendees.  We have planned annual meetings, academic conferences, medical meetings which include both the Pharmaceutical and CME industries,  physician dinner meetings, special events, and many other types of meetings.  Our clients have included corporations, associations, and nonprofit organizations.

We have planned and marketed entire large scale conferences and offered specific services as part of a multi-company team.  Our goal is to have satisfied clients who continue to return to us for their meeting and conference planning needs.

In 2003, GCG Event Partners was created to match professional meeting planners and on-site managers with clients who need short-term meeting planning assistance or on-site management support. GCG Event Partners is able to partner these two entitites to provide a mutually beneficial meeting planning relationship.
