The processes involved in finding a venue for a conference is less about reinvention for reinvention’s sake and more about offering clients the refreshing variation of using a consultative approach rather than a typical call centre. Every year we explore new ways to break down boundaries and secure further facets of added value for the clients whilst retaining our relationships with the venues. Its about communication and working together to achieve the same end goal and when these are blended perfectly the result is a successful negotiation and a satisfied client.
"At Crème Conferences our consultative approach needs to be both inspiring and innovative. "
Crème directors can be closely involved in developmental stages of an event, from the first brainstorming session where the client might be comparing lessons learnt from their previous events, to briefing the conference organiser on the best places for their event should they wish to maximise their budget and generate added value.
We have a lot of fun at Crème Conferences seeing new venues and introducing them to our clients. With each new property comes a new look for the conference rooms or food and beverage areas or bedrooms and as we experience the properties and note what they can offer, the venue choices that we are able to supply to the clients are kept fresh and exciting.
Despite our consultancy’s many successes throughout the last five years, and our awards and acknowledgements, the directors at Crème find it hard to rest on their laurels. With so many venue finders on offer to event planners, retaining our client list remains our top priority and therefore it is vital that we continue to evolve and rejuvenate the services supplied by Crème Conferences. Whilst the formulation for our venue finding will remain the same, 2009 saw the launch of Crème-Res our new online accommodation booking service.
