Event Sourcing & Contracting

Your hotel and venue choices shape your event. They also take up a lot of your budget.

These days, hotels have many ways to fill rooms. That means getting the best rates and aggressive contract terms takes a special touch. Lucky for you, we’ve got it!

We’re the event, cruise, supplier and hotel sourcing experts — and we don’t use that term lightly! We use our extensive benchmarking data to help you find the right space at the right price. Sure, these days, it takes time and finesse, but we’ll put our skill and scale to work for you.
