Venue Sourcing: MEETINGS EXPERT

MEETINGS EXPERT is our venue sourcing solution which helps you reduce the risks associated with meeting contracting, gaining control of meetings spend, and negotiating with suppliers to drive cost savings.

MEETINGS EXPERT provides venue sourcing for those meetings that may be planned outside of a centralized meetings and events program. This service connects companies with experts to negotiate all aspects of a meeting contract including conference rooms, sleeping rooms, food and beverage, and ancillary spending for events with a minimum of 10 rooms per night.

What are the benefits of MEETINGS EXPERT?

  • Complementary service for commissionable venues*
  • Access to meeting professionals to support a single event for sourcing only
  • Robust online supplier database along with well-established industry contacts makes site selection comprehensive, quick and simple
  • Thorough criteria-based analysis of properties – including prices, features and special offers
  • Research and delivery of all information necessary to help make an informed decision, resulting in a venue ideally suited for the event
  • American Express buying power leveraged to obtain favorable rates and pre-negotiated terms & conditions
  • Negotiated savings and contract risk mitigation for each individual event
  • Standardized reporting providing a clear picture of previously unseen spend

As companies continue to focus more and more on global meetings and events engagements, MEETINGS EXPERT will help to provide an international solution for companies looking to more effectively manage meetings spend and drive savings.

* For non-commissionable venues, a fee will be charged.
