Our Leverage Lets You Push Your Weight Around
The power of AAA Special Events is in the buying leverage we bring to each and every client. Our 30 plus clients represents a large block of buying power allowing us to negotiate advantageous rates with the best vendors and venues on behalf of each of our clients. This leverage ensures your next event will get access to rates and venues not normally available to a single client alone. So, go ahead and push your weight around with the buying power that AAA Special Events provides.
Lower Your Meeting Planning Costs
AAA Special Events uses its detailed understanding of hotel, catering and convention center contracts to get the best deals for our clients. In addition to these savings, many times a hotel or venue will pay a fee for the valuable business we bring them. Instead of fattening our bottom line with these fees we apply them to your meeting and planning services, offsetting costs and delivering unparalleled value for our clients. The end result is lower meeting planning costs for your company or organization.
Work With Senior Level Meeting Planners
When you choose AAA Special Events for your event you work with senior level talent, not junior planners. Our three senior planners have 40, 25, and 10 years of experience in the meeting planning profession. This core group has expertise in both the hotel industry and in meeting, convention, tradeshows and event planning. Our cumulative experience adds up to decades of creative management, planning, and implementation of meetings, conventions, tradeshows and events.
