Sharing the best practices discovered by managing over 8,400 events annually and $1.2 billion of total spend, helps make each of our representatives better resources for our customers. This allows us to help our customers discover emerging trends, benchmark destinations and venues, and validate precedents that can have notable impact on their events. We have the privilege of working with some very smart customers like you, which helps continuously accelerate everyone’s development. The end result is delivering more dollars to your bottom line. And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting 4.6 million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.
“Doug McPhee of Experient has worked with us for a number of years. Each year, our organization, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) trains approximately 20,000 educators at 8 different locations, utilizing 16-20 different hotels. It is a significant undertaking to plan and forecast these events 3 to 4 years in advance. Doug has taken the time to understand our requirements; educate us on the dynamics of hotel contractual matters (what are the soft and the hard concerns, etc.), resulting in outstanding meetings held year in and year out. Recently we have expanded our utilization of Mr. McPhee and Experient.”
