Successfully negotiating your hotel and meeting needs

Source

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

Negotiate

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.

Contract

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!

What We Do

Strategic Site Selection conducts unbiased hotel and resort site searches, meticulously plans site inspection itineraries, and negotiates contracts on behalf of our clients.

According to Our Clients

Working with Strategic Site Selection is nothing short of an absolute pleasure. As a department of one, finding the time to research venues, negotiate upfront and manage multiple projects is a challenge but with the expert assistance of Strategic Site Selection, the process is manageable. Strategic Site Selection is a one stop source for managing multiple events, contracts and navigating the negotiation process. I am forever impressed with their roster of contacts and knowledge of venues in multiple cities. They are a team of true professionals and experts in their field and it is an honour to call them partners.

Most of you will remember meeting our sweet fur friend at our RE-Launch event this month. We’re thrilled to report that she was adopted 2 weeks later by one of our clients attending the event that day! Our hearts are so full with this connection and we’re so happy for our client and the newest addition to her family - Miss Daisy!! 🐶

If you or someone you know would like to adopt a rescue dog, please contact @homeboundhoundz
They would love to hear from you 💛
