Partners in Planning

Successfully negotiating your hotel and meeting needs


Armed with your criteria, we will source the best fitting properties for your event and compile the details into an easy to compare proposal.


Using our expertise, buying power and strong industry relationships, we will negotiate on your behalf to ensure you have the best possible offer from your preferred property.


We’ll contract the hotel or venue of your choice, carefully reviewing each clause to reduce your liabilities and provide flexibility.

The process is efficient, strategic and personalized!
