Here are some common answers to questions to let you know why using HelmsBriscoe is a brilliant move for your meetings procurement:
Why do we need your services and what do you actually do?
First, we consult with you to determine your actual meetings needs, including city selection if needed. We then research, evaluate, and present the best venue for your event based on your specific requests. We send the Request for Proposals, track down the answers, follow-up with the hotels, and manage the entire process on your behalf. After you select a venue from those that match your criteria, we negotiate rates and concessions and facilitate the contracting process.
Not only will you save valuable time, you will benefit from our purchasing power and industry relationships which often times translates into better availability and pricing.
As our client, we represent your interests and you remain in control throughout the entire process.
