We know planning a destination event is fraught with challenges, even under the best circumstances. You want to make sure your attendees have a great experience – and that your budget stays in check. But with limited knowledge of unique local venues, services, and resources, pulling off your big event can be nerve-wracking, to say the least!
Our GEP Destination Management teams provide you with the “insider advantages” that come from years of cultivating extensive local connections and resources. This allows us to confidently orchestrate practically every aspect of your event, and deliver:
- Experiences that will “wow” your group. After working with you to thoroughly understand your goals, budget, and the special characteristics of your group, we’ll design a program that meets your specific needs, while making the most of what the region has to offer. In fact, our long-held relationships provide us with exclusive access to many unique event opportunities and venues not widely available to the general public. Our goal is to design an event that will create excitement around your meeting – and leave people with indelible memories for years to come.
- Logistical planning that leaves nothing to chance. In addition to planning and managing your key programs, we’ll also tap into our select group of trusted suppliers to arrange the full spectrum of logistics you’ll need throughout your meeting or event, including securing sites and transportation for daily activities and tours. Since we know the area, the sites, and the vendors, we can proactively anticipate and address any potential issues before they impact your event – so there are no unwelcome “surprises” along the way.
- Maximum “Bang for Your Buck.” Because we work with our trusted “go to” local vendors on a constant basis, we’ve developed significant relationships that we’ll leverage on your behalf. This helps us create memorable events that deliver excellent value and stay on budget.
No matter how big or small your event, GEP Destination Management will make sure it’s high-impact and low-stress… from the first day of planning to the last day on site.
