Different Meetings Fit Different Goals

Sales Meetings

Bringing together your sales team? Use the time effectively to unleash their potential, build their knowledge, recognize their achievements and allow time for collaboration. It may be mandatory for your sales team to attend, but that’s no reason for them not to want to attend. Our meeting professionals can help you define a strategy that will deliver results and design an experience to look forward to. From the right venue selection, to increasing engagement using our EventAPP™ mobile platform, to the effective use of networking, we deliver a meeting that reinvigorates performance.

Channel Partner Meetings

Too often when you work with a middleman to distribute your product or support your product, you end up competing for attention in a crowded space. Our team knows how to structure meetings that build relationships and motivate your channel partners. We work with you to offer programs that help your partners meet their goals of increasing sales and profits, whether it’s training, certification or strategic brainstorming. The right communication campaign can build momentum and anticipation so your strategic partners are lining up at your door and not across the street.

National Conferences

Whether you’re a North American based business or a global brand organized by product, function or geography, we can help you structure meetings to bring your team together. Ultimately, driving affinity to your brand. Experience the power of combining high-impact venues, interactivity, best-in-class speakers, big-name entertainment, mobile technology integration and community service projects to engage, motivate and connect to your audience.

Product Launches

The power of human interaction, product demonstrations and testimonials is second to none. New product innovations fuel business. You need to educate, train and motivate your employees, channel partners, the media and consumers to ensure success. We can help you win the marketplace.

Life Sciences Meetings

We have years of experience in the life sciences market working with healthcare and pharmaceutical clients. Our team has vast experience, both domestically and internationally, in managing speaker programs, advisory boards, consultant meetings, investigator meetings and sales training meetings. We also manage medical and scientific conference and symposia services. Beyond a provider of traditional global meetings support, we understand the nuances of government guidelines specific to HCP reporting.

Expos

We create events to showcase YOUR business. We build opportunities to learn from the experts at the top of their game, network with industry peers, and experience product and service developments firsthand. From education via gamification, to instant surveys on our EventApp™, to hands-on workshops, we can help you showcase your brand in the best light.

Events

Unique, “once in a lifetime” events can have a significant impact on promoting a product, service, cause or organization. From an anniversary celebration, to a celebrity golf tournament to a concert, we can help you create a standout event. One that will deliver a brand-focused impression, be remembered and create excitement.
