        Venue Selection

         

        Our Approach

        Picking a venue is more than just picking a pretty place for your event. We know the hidden gems in town, as well as the lemons disguised as the must-have spot. Plus, we consider details like parking, security needs and hidden costs at every site visit — spilling all the beans on what a venue coordinator might not tell you.

        What we do

        • Find the perfect location for you
        • Understand the hidden prices, so you don’t have to
        • Show you the benefits of blank canvases vs full-service properties, hotels vs piers and pavilions
        • Negotiate contracts and all the required vendors, insurance requirements, union regulations, permit requirements, and so much more.

        Onsite Staffing

         

        Our Approach

        When you’re hosting your event, the last thing you want to do is load a late presenter’s presentation on a laptop moments before they step on stage, keep your eye out for wayward attendees who overindulged at the bar, or answer the same questions over and over. That’s why we provide excellent event staff, hand selected and trained by us, to be your onsite support.

        What we do

        • Notice problems before they arise
        • Place staff strategically at every turn to ensure full coverage
        • Provide fantastic temp staff and volunteer training,  ensuring your attendees are greeted with a smile and are offered solutions to every inquiry
        • Eliminate lines, help attendees find their way, keep rooms tidy, start and end sessions on time, care for exhibitors, and handle vendors
