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!

Networking Opportunities: IMEX provided unparalleled opportunities to connect with industry leaders and peers, fostering new collaborations and strengthening existing partnerships.

Innovative Trends: The event showcased the latest trends and innovations, sparking creative ideas for future projects and events.

Sustainable Practices: A strong emphasis on sustainability underscored the importance of eco-friendly practices in event planning and execution.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to @paula.seibezzi and Caroline Borland for hosting an incredible pre-fam in London. Your hospitality set the perfect tone for our journey. Special thanks to @grosvenorhouselondon, @marriottgrosvenorsquare, @sheratongrandlondon, and @editionlondon for their unforgettable hospitality.

Additionally, we express our deepest gratitude to Jeremy Roberts (@bestwestern and World Hotel Group) for organizing a fantastic post-fam to Thessaloniki. The experience was made exceptional by the wonderful stay at @makedonia_palace_hotel.

A big thank you to Shelley Bartle-Reed @sbartlereed from @alhi.gso for their exceptional pre-fam at @huisterduin on the dune of Noordwijk just outside of Amsterdam, and for including our team in ALHI`s evening reception. Your warm welcome and the opportunity to connect with industry peers was truly appreciated.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to making these experiences memorable. We`re inspired and ready to bring these insights to our clients and partners! 🌟
