Many different types of events fall under this broad umbrella. We successfully create and execute all of them from Sales Kick-Offs to Congresses, Product Launches and Roadshows as well as Management Meetings and Incentive Travel.
A great meeting takes planning. Planning takes time, hundreds of hours attending to all the facets that make up a well-structured event. As your meeting planning partner, we take the logistical burden off you so you can remain focused on the message and content that will achieve your objectives.
Pre- Program: The Strategic Development
We help you analyse the critical success factors for your event and work through the planning process to develop a realistic budget that will allow you to achieve your objectives while containing expenses. Keeping your costs low and our service levels high is our priority. Accurate and transparent line item budgets are a forte of Solutions Group.
Solutions Group will provide a detailed analysis of suitable locations and venues that meet the needs of your group. All logistic detail will also be provided, inclusive of air travel options and cost comparisons, hotel room rates and availability, usable meeting and function space, team building activities, off property venues and special events. We have extensive knowledge of most locations and interesting spaces and will help you work through the advantages and drawbacks of a potential conference location.
During the inspection trip, you will soon realise that the relationships our company has with contractors is so well-established, that every obstacle can be easily overcome and removed. While looking after our guests, all our efforts will be focused to their well-being, as our clients satisfaction is the main objective.
Site inspection - once the choice of meeting sites is narrowed, Solutions Group will plan an inspection itinerary and escort your representatives to view the locations in person.
