Sourcing is more than site selection – that’s just the tip of the iceberg. To source a successful corporate meeting, you need insights, risk mitigation, buying power and goal alignment – along with cost savings and ROI. In addition, you need to ensure the destination and venue provide the best experience for your meeting guests. It seems overwhelming, but with the right partner it can be simple and seamless. And if you are in need of more than sourcing – full corporate meeting, strategic meeting management or incentive planning support from meeting design, management and logistics to meeting promotions, communications and measurement our sister company, Maritz Travel, can deliver. Maritz Global Events can be an extension of your team. Our Spectrum Sourcing process leverages your data with our data to help you benchmark offers at locations throughout the world. The process focuses on these key elements:
