What can Stephen and Leanne do for YOU?

They say that being a meeting planner is one of the most stressful jobs in the world.  That’s INSANE!  But when that study came out, we all nodded our heads in agreement.

What you do is incredibly stressful, and when we see our other beloved meeting planner friends go through that, it breaks our hearts.  We don’t want you to feel that way!  We want you to feel empowered and energized so you can be more strategic in your work.  That is where we come in.

Our team is here to give you more time to be more strategic in your work as meeting planners.  Be it sourcing and contracting with hotels and destinations, housing management, or an extra set of hands managing your event, we’re here to help ease the pain and time-consuming tasks associated with planning a successful meeting.

Our complimentary site selection services are available to anyone who has a need for hotel and meeting space with more than 10 guest rooms per evening.  If site selection is what you need, we work to find you hotel options that fit your budget and fit your program’s goals and objectives.  From there, we take our combined 40 years experience and the global buying power of ConferenceDirect and we negotiate a venue contract from the CLIENT’S perspective, not the hotels.

That’s what we do.  And we do it well.  And because you do what you do well, you deserve the best.

As one of ConferenceDirect’s most experienced associate teams (Stephen and I have a combined 40 years experience in site selection, hotel sales and meeting planning), we’re here to partner with you and address your specific needs and pain points.  Its not a “one-size-fits-all” strategy.  Just like your different meetings serve different needs, so do our services.

We love what we do and we love our industry.  We are committed to the success of our client’s programs, and we’re committed to watching our industry grow.

If this sounds like something that would benefit you, then reach out to us.   How can we help you today?

Wait, there’s more….

In addition to our site selection services, housing management and conference management services, ConferenceDirect clients have access to cost-savings on a number of additional resources including registration management, mobile event apps, strategic meetings and cruise services.  Both Stephen and Leanne are here to help you navigate the services that are the best fit for you and your program.

How do you get started?
