Partnering Every Step of the Way
At Horizon Meetings, the difference is clear. From the very beginning we strive to understand your culture, your meetings, and your attendees, making it easier to get the most competitive bids from hotels. Our focus is working hard as your ally for the success of your events. When the ideal property is selected and the contract is signed, we move into the ongoing process of site management. We track your pick up and pace reports, notifying you of any red flags to be addressed before they become issues. We track and communicate time critical dates to you and the hotel. If needed, we are onsite at your pre-convention meeting, your first day of registration and at any event that you may need us. We act as a liaison between your organization and the hotel to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Our business is relationship driven. Our clients are our priority. The relationships that we build are long lasting and are based on mutual respect and trust in our ability to provide the best service as well as our expertise in representing your needs as our highest priority. We are truly your partner in creating an exceptional meetings experience.
Saving you time and money
There is no cost to your organization for our site management services. The selected hotels fund Horizon Meetings through a placement fee which is already a part of their marketing budgets, so rates do not increase. In fact, in most cases we are able to negotiate lower rates and concessions. Horizon is an accredited IATAN Agency and an international account with ALL major brands, unlike some of our competitors who have specific deals with specific brands, leading them to not necessarily have YOUR best interest in mind when suggesting a venue. We partner with many organizations that have held successful events at every major hotel brand around the world. This is why we are able to offer our services to you with no impact to your bottom line.
Our National Account Managers field all calls, questions and proposals for you, saving you time. We collect, organize, and preview all proposals from the hotels prior to your review. A clear and concise spreadsheet that compares each property on dates, rates, concessions, location, and turn downs gives you everything you need to make a preliminary decision. We set up site inspections for you, your conference committee and/or your board of directors. Our National Account Managers are experts in the hotel sales field, each with over 20 years of experience, ensuring the absolute best deal as we navigate the negotiation process.
