Q: What is the cost for your site selection services?
A: There is no cost for you when it comes to site selection with meetings that have a bedroom component included. Our work is compensated by a commission on guestrooms only, from the contracted hotel on actualized programs. Additional services and consulting are available at an hourly rate.
Q: Do you only work with specific brands?
A: No. Our selection process is unbiased. We can work with any brand or independent hotel, in any destination. We make recommendations based on what we believe is the best fit for your program needs.
Q: Can you help with space only requests if we don’t need guestrooms?
A: Yes. We offer venue sourcing for meeting space only as part of our à la carte services.
Q: How far in advance do we need to start sourcing for a program?
A: It is never too early to start looking! Depending on program specifications, we can always put rooms and space on hold until a decision is made. This gives you the time you need to share the information with your team. We can work with short term requests as well – just need to know what your timelines are and we will meet your needs!
Q: What is the benefit of going through you versus going direct?
A: We help you make a great decision in selecting the best suited venue for your event. We use our expertise to leverage our total volume of business to ensure you receive the best offer, flexible contract terms, and also have pre-approved contract terms with major brands.
