If you are not satisfied with your meeting or event ROI, ConferenceDirect can make it more manageable, cost effective & engaging.
We help secure the best accommodations, meeting spaces, conference venues and event services available. We can negotiate the most favorable terms possible due to our tremendous buying power: we represent 11,040 events and book over 3.8 million hotel rooms each year!
See below for an overview of the services we provide. Both site sourcing & selection and agreement negotiations are offered completely free to you (How you ask? We get a commission from the hotel or resort!). We do not replace your current staff. Instead, we function as an extension of your meetings and events department to enhance your organization’s meetings or events.
