We use the best software to manage our events from start to finish. It includes an extremely comprehensive RFP response tool. Property Sales managers, Global Sales offices, CVB's, Rep firms and DMC's can all respond electronically.

As your account manager, we will continue to be your consultant as unforeseen events come up. Attendance, renovations and demand on the city are all things that can impact your event, we will work with the hotel on your behalf to come to a resolution that best meets your needs.
Historical data and post event reports

It may only be a simple post event report showing actualized numbers that is filed away for the future, or you may have a comprehensive SMMP that requires very specific data.
