Maximizing Your Corporate Event Budget

 

Digital-Realty

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could achieve an overall cost savings of 10%+ on your next corporate offsite?  What if your next corporate event could save you money versus meetings you planned in the past and allow you to stretch your annual budget even further this year?

This is just one of the benefits you can derive from working with a professional, certified event planner who has the leverage to negotiate on your behalf with third-party vendors.

For example, up to one third of your overall offsite event expenses can be attributed to the venue where you are hosting your event. Hotel room blocks, food and beverage minimums, resort fees and porterage add up and give you economic power as a client.  Working with a professional event planner, negotiating on your behalf, who knows how to pitch the long term value of a company/client relationship, is vetted by industry certifications and has a strong global vendor network, you can maximize your negotiating position with a hotel and reap savings which would be unachievable if you try to independently negotiate.

Many savvy corporate meeting planners know how to strategically use professional event planners, but not all planners are transparent about the cost savings they achieve for their clients.  At Anna Marie Events, we reveal all of our vendor and venue credits to our clients, passing the savings directly on to them.  In most cases, the savings more than cover the Anna Marie Events service fees, so you achieve a net reduction in the cost of your event program.
