Contract Negotiation

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.

We strive to save you money while providing the best services possible.
Avoid the pitfalls of common contract language that puts you at risk.
Individual Concierge Service
We stay with you from signing to the conclusion of the event.
