Ever wonder how a corporate event planning company performs their magic? Helms Briscoe and NYC &Co gathered at Convene’s Grand Central conference center for a panel discussion on “How Best to Work with a Corporate Events Agency.”
The panelists, Helms Briscoe meeting planning experts, gave the audience a chance to pick their brain on the planning process as well as learn about what it’s like to work with clients.
- The marketplace has turned into a seller’s market. The volume of availability and pricing of venues has changed significantly.
- You don’t have to book your hotel accommodations and meeting space under one roof. Most of the time, it’s more cost effective to use a dedicated conference center and book guest accommodations at a neighboring hotel.
- Avoid conference centers that “nickel-and-dime” you with concessions and be sure to communicate that you want quotes from meeting spaces that will include all the necessary event resources, such as free high-speed Wi-Fi, snacks and beverages, freshly-made food, in-room technology, and on-site staff to help.
