Hello, I’m Kathy Webber
National Account Manager, ESN
The first step to a successful event is to ensure that the selected venue is the best fit. Each client and event is unique, and best fit does not necessarily mean a single-minded focus on the lowest rate. Rather, it is a culmination of proper planning: hotel brand, contract, travel expenses, meeting space, food and beverage, audio-visual, and nearby amenities to help the attendee have the most positive experience; these are just several factors to consider.
And thanks to the collective data and knowledge secured by contracting over four million room nights annually, you can be confident you are receiving the optimum combination of rates, concessions, and terms every time.
Using my over 25 years in the hospitality industry (client, hotel and planner sides) I will aid you by having venues compete, not just bid, for your event. Together, let’s make 2016 the year you take your event to the next level.
“Kathy has been my trusted partner for the last few years. Her expertise, attitude, accountability, and ingenuity are the cornerstones of her service. Kathy’s help allows me to review the best hotels available with ease. She handles the negotiations and due diligence while drawing on her network of industry contacts to deliver the best solutions for my needs. She rises to the toughest challenges I give her and exceeds my expectations time and time again. Kathy asks penetrating questions and really strives to understand my attendee’s needs. She also provides proactive suggestions to save my company money and give my clients a better experience. If I ever have an issue when working with a hotel my first contact is to Kathy. She is in my corner always making every effort to provide “Wow!” service. My only regret is not working with her sooner. ”

I have worked with Kathy Webber for the past several years and her understanding of our requirements as a non-profit is invaluable. Even after contracts are signed, Kathy is always available to help with contract amendments and modifications.

A GPS/Positioning Technology Company
My career in the meetings industry began in the late ‘80s when I managed planning for over 450 annual events. After a few years I transitioned onto the hotel sales side. Then in 2003 I decided to combine my experience along with the research capabilities and buying power of Experient to help other organizations and planners perfect their event experience. And as they say, “the rest is history”. My clients have found our combined partnership assures that EVERY time we succeed as a team to procure the perfect venue. I am passionate about what I do, and I am there every step of the way with you. My only job is to make your job more enjoyable and less stressful, freeing you from time consuming logistics, allowing you to focus on your members and growing your business.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling and use this experience to expand my own knowledge of our country and the world, and also catch local sporting events! I am an avid tennis player and a volunteer league coordinator for my county’s tennis association, assisting with the formation of USTA play in Colorado. I have a wonderful partner and three furry buddies. Life is great.
