Why CMP? Simply put, we perform! Every Meeting, Every Time. CMP has executed the task of saving our Associations time and money continually over the past 27 years. We understand the process from the onset to the outset and we implement our processes to streamline activities to produce desired results. Our goal is to affect a significant cost savings-return on investment—providing legendary service while minimizing the risk to our clients. With every meeting we produce, we implement SMM (Strategic Meeting Management) strategies to develop the best scenario for our clients. Our goal is to watch business trends, decide when the correct time has come to source a meeting or event, then contract as far out as is comfortable for the client, ultimately saving the client thousands in multi-year contracting offers and better rates for their attendees.
We monitor spending once budget is created along with best Practices for Sourcing. Our understanding of each of our clients and their brand is of upmost importance. The setting up of registration—invitation and ground transportation early on in the pre-event stage sets the tone.
