Executive Assistant,

“The 28-point addendum to the hotel contract has been a real money-saver for us this past year.”
“Unfortunately, we've had to change locations for a couple of our meetings and had to cancel existing contracts. The addendum waives the F&B cancellation charges up to a certain date, and this has saved us a considerable amount of money. This has been a very good relationship for us!”

“MEETINGS EXPERT provided personalized service in a great way.”
