COMPLIMENTARY SERVICES FOR MEETING PLANNERS

SITE SEARCHES

Via my partnership with HPN Global, I will conduct an extensive, confidential hotel search to help you find the best overall deal for your event. Within 48 hours, I can have initial rates, dates, catering costs and more so you can start narrowing location options for your event.

RATE NEGOTIATION

Using the volume buying power generated via HPN’s 1000+ meetings sourced per month, I will negotiate on your behalf obtaining the best deal available by addressing rate, attrition, additional discounts on catering and audiovisual as well as upgrades for the group.

SITE VISIT ARRANGEMENTS

If you plan to visit the properties being considered prior to making a final decision, I can make all the necessary arrangements and prepare your agenda for your visit.

CONTRACT REVIEWS

I work with you to review all contracts to ensure the best terms and conditions are being offered while confirming that all previously offered upgrades, discounts and other “extras” are included before signature. Further, we work together to verify all of your meeting requirements, set up times and meeting rooms contracted are blocked appropriately according to your agenda at the time of contract.

VENDOR ASSISTANCE

HPN Global has a vast network of partners who can assist you with transportation, audio-visual, speakers, entertainment and more.

PRE-EVENT AND ON-SITE COORDINATION

As a direct result of demand from our clients, HPN Global’s Meeting Services team can provide a broad spectrum of services for those in need of more assistance in the planning and execution of your event. We are experts in registration, data management, theming and more for your conferences and meetings.

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH CHRISTINE

Expertise - Experience - Buying Power

FREE TO YOU

You will never have to pay for using the power of HPN Global’s sourcing services. Hotels pay us a placement fee based on the number of room nights that your group uses for your event – this fee doesn’t impact your rate in any way.

RATE SAVINGS

Using our proprietary RFP system, we source over 1000 meetings per month for our clients allowing us to obtain significant volume discounts on room rates, concessions and extra protection on contractual terms which may be otherwise difficult to obtain as a single organization.

TIME SAVINGS

How much time do you spend researching hotels, sending RFPs and then following up to get a response? Let me manage these time-consuming tasks for you and I’ll have real-time offers for you to review in 48-72 hours.

NO CONTRACTS

There is no down side to working with us as we don’t require a contract to begin a search and if you’re unhappy with our results you don’t have to use us. Obviously, we’re very confident in our service and therefore never ask for customers to commit to anything other than the opportunity to be of service.

MEETINGS OF ANY SIZE

No meeting is too large (or too small) for HPN Global. We regularly handle meetings as small as 10 rooms but can handle large city wide events and everything in between!

 

TESTIMONIALS

What’s Being Said

 

 Christine Kavanagh has always been very professional and always available. She gives us great valuable feedback and advice and is open and honest. She always had our best interest at heart and really works her tail off to make sure that we have everything we need covered. We truly believe Christine saved us a lot of money over the years, but specifically when the hurricanes came through a destination where we were under contract, she was able to help us negotiate with a vendor that was not easy to work with and get our deposit back. I have really enjoyed working with Christine and she is currently helping us plan our next trip – our 3rd with her. We cannot say enough about how professional and friendly she is and we look forward to working with her in the future years to come!

ABOUT CHRISTINE

With a resume that spans more than 20 years in the hospitality industry as a corporate planner, a third-party planner and a Director of Sales & Marketing where was I was named “Sales Leader of the Year” two years in a row, I can truly say I've done it all when it comes to meetings and events. My background in working on both sides of the table in hospitality has helped me develop a 360-degree view of what it takes to bring value to my clients. I'm pleased to be able to offer my insights as a consultant to planners wishing to save time and money on their meetings and events.


When I’m not working with my clients, I enjoy traveling the globe with my husband, Glenn. We love getting out and exploring the restaurant scene in our hometown of Asheville, NC, spending time with our friends or snuggling up on the couch with one of our cats when we’re not busy planning our next travel adventure.
