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.
