Whether you are planning a large conference or a series of workshops, all events require a multitude of logistics to be successful. We partner with you to handle what you need when you need it, reducing the cost of full time staff and taking the aggravation of meeting planning out of your office. We give you access to knowledge and creativity you would not otherwise have. Most importantly, because we have done this for more than 20 years, we do it more efficiently and in a more cost effective way.
Choosing a conference site can be intimidating. Conference Solutions will advise you on your site needs, search for an appropriate venue and conduct contract negotiations for optimal results. As experienced meeting planners, we help reduce your expenses by negotiating the best rates for hotel accommodations, meeting space, food and beverage, audiovisual equipment and more. Because of our years of experience, we not only know what to do, but what NOT to do to make your event a success.
Once the preliminary work is done, there are still many more details to attend to. Conference Solutions will manage your speakers and exhibitors and make sure you have the A.V. you need where you need it. Our experience allows us to work the percentages when planning and ordering meals for your participants. Our onsite staff will know your meeting inside and out and will be there to manage all of the onsite details.
