Tapping into the best Colorado offers is one of the major benefits of hiring a local meeting and event planner, destination management company or third party planner, not to mention the major plus of having a support team that helps make sure a gathering goes off without a major hitch.
Professional planners can help match a Colorado community to a group’s or event’s needs and budget and identify the best lodging property, venues, caterer, photographer, AV providers and décor companies. They also can find activities to fit the vision and goals of a gathering, whether its in Beaver Creek, Loveland, Buena Vista, Durango or Telluride.
Sometimes an employee with little meeting or event planning experience is handed the baton for a big gathering. To relieve the stress of this assignment, bring in a seasoned planner to take care of the smallest details, negotiate contracts, monitor the budget, help develop a theme and keep the timeline on track. Or maybe it’s for a wedding or large reunion; planners can help keep everything on target, add exceptional touches and keep all the emotions and family dynamics in check.
Destination Colorado meeting and event planning members are among the most respected in the state, planning gatherings in the mountains, plains, cities and nearly every place in between. Ask about their experiences in the Colorado towns you are considering and for examples of successful programs similar to yours.
Another big benefit of hiring corporate meeting and event planners is that they can help track return on investment (ROI) to demonstrate impact and successful achievement of goals and objectives for a gathering. They also know ways to encourage and track attendance, implement the latest in technology tools for tech-savvy attendees and to complete the circle with surveys and follow-up details like providing photo links, making speaker presentations available and more.
Why go it alone when experts are available? Take a big layer of stress out of planning a corporate, association, nonprofit or social gathering by making sure extra hands and minds are on your team taking care of all the details.
