Strategic Event Procurement

Let’s take the pain out of procurement for events.

Streamline your business processes, reduce risk, and manage cost so you can focus on your Zone of Genius - delivering amazing event experiences.

And, leave the “un-fun” tasks to me.

You have plenty on your plate to worry about. You don’t need to add Requests for Proposals (RFPs) or contracting and payment woes to your list.

I’m passionate about event procurement, and it shows. Let me take away your headache. I’ll help you manage the things you don’t want to do or have time to do.

Need advice about Event Procurement? 

I've got you!

Does this sound familiar?

Are you an event organizer who has

  • worried about losing a venue because you couldn’t get your contract reviewed in time?

  • gotten a big bill for cancellation or attrition damages?

  • been told you need an RFP to hire a new supplier and don’t know where to start?

Do you own or work in an event agency and

  • are dreading an upcoming rate card negotiation?

  • need help putting your best foot forward on an RFP?

  • would benefit from a Procurement expert sitting on your side of the table?

These situations can be so frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Procurement Strategy should focus on business outcomes, not necessarily savings metrics, especially regarding events. Events work at the speed of business, and Procurement needs to keep up!
