Complimentary Venue Sourcing Services*

  • Site Selection Research & Data-Driven Insights

    Benefit from research and criteria-based analysis of properties – including pricing, hotel features, and special offers.

  • Site Solution Reporting

    Receive a side-by-side presentation of all information necessary to help make an informed decision, resulting in a venue ideally suited for your event.

  • Contract Negotiations

    We negotiate aspects of the hotel contract including sleeping rooms, conference rooms, food and beverage, and ancillary spending with at least ten rooms on any peak night.

*For commissionable venues

The addendum to our hotel contract that American Express GBT Meetings & Events negotiated for us has saved us a considerable amount of money. Knowing we won’t be on the hook for F&B cancellation charges if we cancel before a certain date means that when our plans change, we don’t lose out!
