We have prepared this Event Planning Guide to provide you with information to help make your event a success, whether you are booking a convention, trade show, meeting, consumer show, concert, dance, sporting event or any other kind of special activity.
Our experienced staff will provide additional information and guidance throughout the planning stages, from your initial consultation to the successful culmination of your event. An Event Manager will be assigned to your event. We encourage you to communicate with your Event Manager directly and as often as necessary. Keeping the doors of communication open is a major step toward ensuring the success of your show.
