Site Selection Services
Our Site Selection services are FREE to our client! YES, 100% FREE! People often ask us how they can have us do all the legwork and contract negotiations for an event and not have us charge anything! This is how it works:
Hotels pay us a commission for working as your agent - much the same way a travel agent gets a commission for booking a hotel room or a cruise. The main real difference is that we’re booking a block of rooms rather than just one. We’re also putting more than 30 years of industry experience to work for you in negotiating your contract.
Even though the hotel is paying us, we work for you! This means that we will sit down with you and learn as much as we can about what you’re looking for in a venue, and then go out and find it. Once we locate a property that meets with your approval, we’ll go to work negotiating a contract for you.
By staying on top of the market, we have been able to negotiate millions of dollars of winning hotel contracts for our clients. Still having trouble with the idea? Give us a call and ask about the Bar Associations representing over 7,000 attorneys nation-wide that have had us source and negotiate over 20 contracts!! In case you missed that, we are hired by Attorneys to negotiate contracts on their behalf!
Our client came to us with the hotel they wanted to use and had been given a rate of $220.00 a night for 65 rooms for 4 nights (we would call this 260 room nights). They were very happy with this and ready to make the deal when they brought us in. We were able to lower the room rate to $180.00 a night, get them 2 free rooms per night and upgrade their executives to suites at no additional charge. We also got the terms of the contract softened to be more agreeable to our client’s legal department and had the hotel write us in a the Agent of Record so that we received commission from the hotel and didn’t have to bill the client!
The net effect?
We saved them over $11,000.00 and the hotel paid us to do it!
