Beginning and implementing the process of choosing a property for your conference can be quite difficult. At CMC, we understand the site selection process and we use our database of over 57,000 U.S. Venues, our in-depth knowledge of the industry and our nationwide network of connections and pair it with our familiarity of your budget, needs, and objectives, to ultimately aid you with picking the perfect location.
CMC takes great care during the site selection process by utilizing our many years of experience and connections in various aspects of the hospitality industry to find the most suitable location with the most capable staff and amenities to suit your conference needs.
At CMC, our top priority is making your event successful. From hassle-free registration to on-site assistance, we ensure your event runs at peak performance at all times. Our staff handles events nationwide, ranging in size from 10 attendees to large scale events of over 5,000 attendees. Put your event in the hands of a company you can count on and let our experience guide your event to major success.
Our extensive registration and conference management database, Cvent, effectively manages all registrations and travel, including detailed information collection from attendees. This data allows for a variety of special needs accommodation and tracking, while still maintaining a very user-friendly interface for attendees.
CMC accomplishes the entire event planning process from A to Z. After site selection, the next step is contracting. Due to our longstanding relationships within the industry, we have the ability to negotiate a contract that protects your company as well as ensuring concessions are provided to maximize your available benefits.
We will work with you and the hotel through the entire contracting process, but we don't stop there. We will be available from the time of signing until the conclusion of your event. CMC holds in high importance to not only help negotiate the contract but to also ensure the hotel follows through with its agreement. Maybe you decided to add another breakout session down the road – we can help with that.
Your hotel contract should be the most important part in your event planning process. CMC will be here to protect you and alleviate the stress associated with this process.
CMC has been involved in developing and conducting training courses for over 15 years. Acting as a facilitator, we use our meeting planning expertise to secure the most favorable accommodations and team up with an experts in the field to develop and conduct the training.
We developed and manage the National Transportation Management Conference, which is an annual leadership training conference held in five different locations across the country. We contract with the instructors for the conference and arrange guest speakers, (both from AASHTO and FWHA) for each of the five locations.
