Meetings and Events Management

Live meetings and events are important, now more than ever, to celebrate your team, share new ideas, build relationships, and strengthen your culture.

We create immersive experiences that empower your audience and align with your purpose and values.

Hosting live experiences that are engaging and relevant is an essential way to build camaraderie, teamwork, and excitement. Global meetings and events can also help strengthen your organization’s commitment to sustainability, diversity, inclusion, wellness, and mental health. Whether it’s a gathering of 20, 200 or 20,000, our expertise in corporate meetings and events management will help you plan the perfect way to bring everyone together to foster growth within your organization.

Experiences can be live, virtual, or a hybrid of both. However, creating the right experience for everyone begins with having compelling content – delivered in the most impactful way – with lots of opportunities for personal connections. It also means acknowledging the needs and preferences of each attendee, as people now prefer to have a say in what they wish to experience. That’s why we ensure that each person feels empowered and motivated to attend by offering flexible choices so that they feel appreciated and recognized. Our “one size doesn’t fit all” approach is sure to encourage participation while strengthening your culture and creating deeper relationships.

Have something unique in mind? Our i|xperience® design approach can help you connect with your audience in the most immersive and meaningful way. We are experts at combining innovative technologies with personalized attention while delivering a greater ROE – Return on Event.
Simply put, we make it our business to help build yours.

64 percent of planners report that their attendees are more interested in networking at events than pre-pandemic.

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

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 profit, 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.

Virtual Meetings and Events

Virtual Meetings and Events

Our virtual capabilities include audience engagement campaigns, integrated gamification, digital content expertise, collaboration tools, and trusted technologies. Think of virtual experiences as a chance to communicate with and approach your audience in a new perspective. With the right team and careful preparation, we can turn it into an invigorating experience.

National Conferences

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

Product Launches

The power of human interaction, product demonstrations and testimonials are 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

Life Sciences

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

Expos

Expos combine the professional development of a conference with the social aspect of a convention. We think of expos as a sort of hybrid of a trade show and conference that is mainly focused on the exhibitors. The objectives usually involve educating the public or a targeted group, sharing innovation, promoting progress and fostering cooperation.

Events

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 or cross-country product tour, we can help you create a standout event. One that will deliver a brand-focused impression, be remembered and create excitement.

User Conferences

User Conferences

With the goals of educating, inspiring and encouraging networking among customers and prospects, these conferences can help build brand awareness around new projects, the latest product features and updates and share customer success stories. Usually, the best part of many user conferences is the value of peer-to-peer, face-to-face contact.

Mobile Tours

Mobile Tours
