Leveraging our considerable expertise, vendor relationships, in-depth due diligence and local connections,Operation Altitude provides the missing link that can mean the difference between total disaster and absolute success.
- KNOWLEDGE IS POWER: One of the primary benefits of a quality DMC is knowledge. Knowledge of the specific venues and which layouts will or will not work in that space. Knowledge of which vendors provide the best experiences. Knowledge of what the vendor is really willing to offer on pricing. And of course, an overall knowledge of the numerous details that go into making a logistically sound program within a specific area. Traffic, weather patterns, road closures are just a few examples that can quickly derail an event without local insight.
- TIME SAVINGS: There may be times when a DMC is not necessary. But often, even something that sounds simple such as dine arounds for a group of 50, can take a significant amount of legwork to manage the details. The time the DMC saves a planner on something even this seemingly simple can be quite valuable. Multiply that by the number of attendees and the variety of elements of a typical three-day program and the DMC becomes a seamless extension of your planning team that allows you to focus on the internal elements while they manage the logistics.
- SINGLE SOURCE: From a practical standpoint, the effort of gathering RFP’s, contracting venues, verifying insurance, approving providers, invoicing, reconciling billing and communicating the ever changing details of program specs, it makes sense for a planner to make one connection point with a DMC who will handle the numerous others elements/vendors involved.
