How Much does It Cost To Hire an EPC Meeting Consultant?

We bill for our services on an hourly, flat fee per project, or on a monthly or annual retainer. You will find that EPC consultants save you money because we know how to accomplish the tasks at hand more efficiently, economically and in a shorter amount of time, resulting in a better managed meeting and more ROI for you and your organization.  In addition, we pass along all cost savings to you through aggregate buying power and intelligent negotiating with the hotels and vendors that we have longstanding relationships with.  Rebates and commissions are also given directly to you – we work for YOU, not the hotel or vendor.  Rebates and commissions can add up to tens of thousands of dollars, if negotiated and managed properly by an EPC staff member, and can also easily pay for our services!
