There’s a good reason that our clients come back to us for more events and support. We not only provide innovative, unforgettable experiences for our clients; we also help them with their business goals. We have consistency in service and standards, reliability in our staffing, and always add those little special touches for our VIP’s. We are an extension of our client’s teams and aim to make each year’s event more memorable than the last!
Site Selection & Program Development
Destination consideration is a key component to any successful meeting or event. With worldwide production experience, we provide the necessary resources and support our clients need when it comes to selecting a destination or venue for their next meeting or event.
Online Registration Services
As part of pre-conference promotion, online enrollment, or providing current updates, GBA recognizes the importance online services plays in getting information out to attendees in the quickest and most effective manner possible. We provide website development and maintenance services either independently or in conjunction with in-house IT departments. Distribution of information relative to the conference, database management, and the promotion of then event can all play a part of the registration and information services GBA provides.
The best options when it comes to accommodation selection, along with onsite management of all in-house or on property services, are standard considerations we provide all our clients. From catering contracts to established levels of enhanced service, we work closely with the host property to ensure all services are delivered in a first-class manner. Whether small independent hotels or large international chains, we research and select those properties which we feel best meet the needs of our individual clients. Once our client has made their selection, we work vigorously on their behalf managing each and every detail.
We understand that getting to, from, and around during events in the easiest and most convenient manner possible is key in the overall experience of your guests. For this reason, we have dedicated staff whose only job is to ensure that all travel arrangements are handled with the utmost attention and care. Since the travel experience is quite often the first and last thing your guests remember, providing them with the best and most convenient arrangements possible is our primary goal.
When it comes to producing that extraordinary event, we realize that the “wow” factor must translate our client’s mission through the experience itself. Whether that means working to develop every component independently or in partnership with your in-house resources, it is a singular creative focus at work to meet your objectives. With your vision to guide us from the conceptual stage through actual on-site production, we manage and oversee every event detail to assure seamless integration into the final product. Whether it is a simple welcome reception or gala black-tie formal affair, we work with one purpose in mind – to create and produce a one-of-a-kind experience for your guests.
We realize that negotiation and contract management are fundamental elements that deserve critical attention. Regardless of the profile of the potential supplier, we ensure both tenacity and meticulous attention to detail when it comes to protecting and providing our clients the best possible choices under the best possible terms, at the best possible price.
