EVENT PLANNING
A special team oversees the planning and implementation of these projects of which the need cannot be over-emphasized. The team performs the following functions: provide information and advisory service to the client as needed, procurement of facilities and equipment, accommodation & hospitality, public relations and marketing, fundraising, entertainment management, exhibition management, program and time management, and any other additional technical support services amongst other specific needs that may be required.

SCHEDULING/PROJECT MANAGEMENT
We develop a timeline action plan and invest pre-planning time towards all our projects. We hold periodic meetings to coordinate with our clients, organizers and stake holders which in turn results in the production of an agreed upon program, action plan and check list with all parties.

CONFERENCING
For Conferences, we source the venues for your meetings, providing alternative choices and the profile on each hotel/venue property proposed. We also act as the liaison/coordinator for all your communications with the hotel in relaying all the specific requirements. The meeting place and all its meal and function rooms are also addressed in relation to your needs.

CONFERENCE BRANDING
We undertake to design and decorate the meeting venue and other facilities with the required theme or message and required specifications, to create the desired overall effect and ambiance.

INFORMATION AND ADVISORY SERVICES
A help desk is key for the smooth-running of any conference. This would normally be a portal for information from where the prospective attendees are updated regularly and, prior to the event, can manage their bookings to the meeting. Hospitality, information and advisory services are addressed effectively at this desk which will usually be situated within the hotel lobby during the time of the conference. It is manned by qualified staff ready to address issues relating to information dissemination, program and provide any support. Alongside this, the desk effectively carries out registration of the delegates prior to the start of the conference.
