Currently, in the management of 24 full-service clients, KWMG plans, executes, and provides leadership for over 50 highly successful and profitable association meetings per year, with over 14,000 attendees combined .
These meetings range from work groups of 5 to 10 volunteers, to large Boards of Directors and Strategic Planning Meetings (including committee chairs) of nearly 50, to traditional meetings/conventions (with exhibits and education) that range from 100 to up to 5,000 attendees.
Many of our annual meetings include educational programs, often for certified educational credits, with as many as 180 concurrent sessions. Further, many of our meetings include extensive trade shows, with exhibitors and sponsors, some having as many as 150 exhibits and a large number of sponsors, providing lucrative, non-dues revenue. KWMG is experienced in developing comprehensive sponsorship opportunities that enhance the exposure of an organization’s brand, securing non-dues revenue, and strengthening relationships between industry corporations and the association.
In support of all these meetings, KWMG has meaningful relationships with most every national hotel chain and has worked with many cities’ convention and visitors bureaus. Recognizing the value of an association’s meeting allows an organization to better negotiate low room rate for attendees, free wi-fi, reductions in food and beverage requirements, free meeting rooms, and a number of additional concessions.
We also conduct a large number of special events – both “stand-alone” and as adjuncts to regular meetings, such as golf tournaments, social outings, educational events, and spouse programs.
Our meeting planners are recognized on a state and national level as among the most talented, resourceful, and professional in the business.
