So Emoji-Ful

5 emojis for meeting planners

Technophile or no, you’ve probably used an emoji or two in recent memory. Emojis have become so common, in fact, they might as well be deemed an official part of the English language—make that any language, as they transcend linguistic boundaries and simply offer, well, emotions. As meeting and event planners, you have an entire world of emojis at your disposal—so have you been using them? Here are five emojis perfect for meeting planners.

Food Emojis

Moving on to the dinner menu? Need to let the kitchen team know it’s time to bring out the dessert? Texting a simple food-themed emoji is like sending an instant signal. One shrimp = get those passed apps out there. A plate of spaghetti? Dinnertime. Chocolate bar = where’s the cake? You can work your own system, without having to utter a single syllable.  

Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down Emojis


An emoji is worth a thousand words, or something like that. Questions from your team about which centerpieces to use, or which linen color is perfect? Simply respond with a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to keep the progress moving—nuff said. 

Handshake Emoji


The handshake can symbolize everything from networking to letting coworkers know something is a done deal. 

Siren Emoji


Who has time to call or text the details when there’s so much work to be done? In times of emergency, have your team text you the siren emoji to let you know there is an issue that needs attending to. 

Sparkling Wine Emoji


A toast to all who have helped make your event-planning journey come true! Send these to your team at the end of a meeting or event, and keep it handy for all future celebratory occasions.
