Your meeting presents a very public face for your organization. You need to know that the company you entrust with your image will treat it with the professionalism and savvy that can only come from years of industry experience.
At Strategic Meetings Group, we’ve developed best practices in meeting planning that inform every decision we make on behalf of your event.
A hallmark of our company is our dedication to personalized service. Our target clients are small to mid-size associations or corporations who either need assistance to complement existing resources or do not have dedicated meeting professionals on staff. We carefully review the needs of each client to ensure they’ve secured all the resources necessary to create a successful event.
We are skilled in contract negotiations and contingency planning. We have successfully negotiated attrition penalties and relocated conferences due to 9/11, SARS, Hurricane Katrina and hotel construction issues with minimal impact on profitability.
