Deliver real value.

Planning needs have changed, but many association events have not. From simple meetings to multi-day conventions, we believe events should consistently deliver tangible value for members.

Create an outstanding experience.

Your last event ran smoothly. Congrats! But how do your members feel when the sessions come to a close? When they leave energized... when they're motivated.. when they're spreading the word... it was time well spent.

Attract sponsors who invest in your members. 

Well-organized events draw sponsors who are willing to invest in your organization and your members. Investments are made where ROI is obvious. Excellence attracts excellence.

If you're like many of our clients, you're struggling with one or more of these...

You're juggling multiple priorities

Every association executive we know wears multiple hats. And it's hard to excel in event planning when you're managing competing priorities.

Your team is stretched thin

Even if you have an event planner on staff, odds are, they're juggling, too. Extra support can mean the difference between success and burnout.

Time is not your friend 

The clock is ticking and the stress levels are rising. If you're four months out and feeling behind, it's time to call for backup.

Your budget is tight
