Could you save money on your conference and event spend?
Finding the right system to manage your conferences and events can be difficult, one system may have some of the benefits that you need, but not all. No one has the time to sift through various platforms and systems, to then find out it doesn’t fit all your requirements. Especially in a time where budgets are being reduced, clients are more demanding and we are used to having accurate data at your fingertips is essential.
To help save money on conference and event spend we’ve outlined a few of the features our clients tell us they benefit from most. Here we share more details on specific elements of our system that has helped our clients achieve significant savings on their conference and event spend.
System user Sam Edwards from Babcock recognised this financial saving saying: “Hospitality Guaranteed worked with us to set-up ConferenceStop a dedicated system to support conference and event management. Having appointed Hospitality Guaranteed as our provider to manage and book our conference and events we have achieved over a 15% saving on our spend.”
All in one dashboard
HG One Stop system is a digitally supported system for conferences, accommodation and events that provides the latest technology all in one place, to help clients save time and reduce annual expenditure. Not only is the dashboard available 24/7, it provides live accurate data and provides users with every tool they require.
Sam was having issues with invoicing prior to using the HG One system, after speaking with our team of experts we quickly came up with a solution.
“We worked with the team at Hospitality Guaranteed to set-up our company structure for invoicing in-line with our requirements. This streamlined and resolved a lot of issues we had with the previous system that created a bottleneck, and heavy administration and confusion around invoicing. The service and system is proving to show great feedback from bookers across the company.”
Finding the right venue
Trying to find the right venue to fit your criteria can be a timely exercise, our system can search 1000s of UK and European venues based on your key criteria using our innovative ‘map it’ tool. Meaning, those countless hours spent searching for the right venue can be solved within minutes.
Sam and his team have benefited from the experts at Hospitality Guaranteed who are specialists in the hospitality sector who negotiate on his behalf.
“The system supports the booking from the venue finding right through to invoicing. Having everything in once place, on one system has been vastly improved our efficiency.”
A key benefit to the HG One system is our automated reports feature, Management Information can be broken down into specific details to enable you to review overall company spend, allocate departmental and individual budgets. This then gives vital information to assist negotiations for future rates and budget setting.
Accessing this data has allowed Sam to make informed decisions quickly and supported effective budgeting.
“I benefit from automated reports that I can access 24/7 that show the current spend, forecasted spend and cost savings made.”
Experts on hand
What sets us apart is our experienced team, each one of our clients has a dedicated account manager, who will review your enquiry, hotel options, packages, costs, contracts, terms and conditions and will check that your invoice is accurate.
Our dedicated experts negotiate where possible, such as room upgrades, refreshments, parking, free Wi-Fi and other additional cost savings. Sam shares how this supports him:
“What we get from the system is second to none. We have used other platforms and find this is much more aligned to our needs. Having an account manager and the option to pick up the phone and speak to someone who understands our requirements creates a responsive service that ticks all the boxes for us.”
“We would recommend Hospitality Guaranteed and have found the implementation of the service smooth and seen great benefits which we are continuing to build upon,”
