A gem of an ending

Little Rock, Ark. — This year’s Small Market Meetings Conference final luncheon, on Wednesday, Sept. 28, will be a sparkling grand finale to three days in Little Rock.

Because Arkansas is unofficially known as the Diamond State — home to  the only diamond-producing site in the world that is open to the public — closing the conference with a dazzling diamond giveaway seemed a perfect ending.

And so, during the SMM closing luncheon, each meeting planner will be handed a glass of champagne for a toast. All glasses but one will also contain a 1 carate cubic zironia of setting quality. The other glass will contain a 1 carat diamond.

The fun will be in finding out who gets to take the real diamond home.

The SMMC Diamond Drop is just one of the benefits of the second annual conference.
Last year’s attendees applauded the new conference for its networking opportunities, its one-to-one business meetings between meeting planners and smaller destinations, its education sessions, and its dinners and special events.
